It’s safe to say that Nicki Minaj has been dominating 2015 — sans pink wig.
From her chart-topping third studio album The Pinkprint to an extensive world tour to giving the world the Beyonce collab we’ve all been waiting for, Ms. Onika Maraj is out here putting numbers on the score board for female emcees.
Now, VH1 is giving the Head Barb in charge a proper send off for her unmatched work ethic, as she will receive their “Big In 2015” honor. And of course, for someone as popular and groundbreaking as Nicki, they had to make sure the award presentation was a special one. So, they’ve secured Queen Latifah to present the “Anaconda” rapper with the forthcoming telecast ceremony.
Just two years ago, at the start of Latifah’s daytime talk show, she invited Minaj to appear as a guest. The two talked rapping, guys and much more, but it was Latifah’s assurance that Minaj was on her way to Billboard success that stroke a chord. “You’re one of the top five in the business period,” she said to Minaj. Fast forward to now, Latifah’s sentiments still hold true.
VH1’s “Big In 2015” will air on the network on Dec. 7 at 9 p.m.
