Nicki Minaj Calls Foxy Brown 'the Most Influential Female Rapper'
Nicki Minaj has recently paid homage to Foxy Brown after bringing her on stage during a recent performance in New York City. After the sell-out performance at the Roseland Ballroom, The 'Sound The Alarm' rapstress sat down with MTV News to discuss the impact Foxy had on her career and the importance of honouring rappers while you still can…
Minaj stated: "I never really told Foxy how much she has influenced me and how much she changed my life and you've gotta tell people that when they're alive to even be able to take the compliment, instead of paying tribute to them when they're no longer here.
"I never really knew how she felt about me — in the industry, with women, you kinda just tread lightly — and I'm glad I was able to finally come out and say: 'You were the most influential female rapper to me.'"
The Young Money star also opened up by claiming it was an emotional experience to be able to share the stage with Foxy Brown: "For her to be on my stage, it was emotional, and she was emotional," she continued. "This is what this is really about.
“When you get where you have arrived to, you give thanks to people who opened those doors and triggered something in your mind. When I found out Foxy Brown was from Trinidad, that did something to me. In my mind, I felt like I could be proud of where I'm from."
