Nas has praised Nicki Minaj for being the only female rapper representing hip-hop at the moment.
The rap icon was featured on Nicki’s latest album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded on a track titled Champion, which also featured Drake and Young Jeezy.
In a recent interview Nas voiced his opinion on the Trini-born rapstress, giving her extra street cred by stating that Nicki is the hottest femcee in the game and working with her was “crazy!”
“I mean it was crazy cause Nicki is out there doing it,” Nas told XXLMag. “She’s like the only female doing it. You got some new ones out her doing it–Azealia Banks, Iggy Azalea–you got them. But since we don’t hear much from Eve, [Lil] Kim and Foxy [Brown] these days, nobody can’t front, Nicki is representing.”
Speaking about his feature on ‘Champions,’ Nas added: “To be on her album, that sh*t was crazy. … She put me on ['Champions'] with Drake and [Young] Jeezy — that’s a recipe of a masterpiece. I thought it was a perfect record and I think Nicki killed that s**t.”
