Nicki Minaj Is Labelled ‘Queen Of Hip-Hop’ By Rolling Stone Magazine
Rolling Stone Magazine has recently crowned Onika Tanya Maraj, better known to the world as Nicki Minaj, the 'Queen Of Hip-Hop'. Despite selling over one million copies and being one of the most talked about artists on the planet, Minaj humbly insists that she is surprised to have
landed the crown and is "honoured" to carry the label of hip-hop’s leading lady...
The 'Harajuku Barbie' spoke to MTV News US and told of her pride at seeing her hard work being recognised by a legendary music institution like Rolling Stone Magazine.
She said: "They're really respected, and then when I went on all the TV shows, they kept on saying, 'She's been dubbed the new 'Queen Of Hip-Hop' by Rolling Stone Magazine', so it was like that happened at the right time. I'm honoured because I have obviously been working hard to get to this place."
The Young Money artist insists that she won’t allow the high praise to go to her head and will not allow her new title to diminish her insatiable work ethic: "Whether or not I'm the 'Queen' of anything, everybody's gonna have their own opinion and I don't do this thinking I'm the queen of
this, I'm the queen of that."
