In return, Nicki gave props to Queen Latifah. “You’ve opened so many doors for me and so many other women,” she said. “And it’s insane because I always reference you when I talk about female rappers who’ve like kinda paved the way in terms of a businesswoman and mogul and just all around entertainer, and to be sitting here doing your show is just a great moment for hip-hop.”
The full interview airs Tuesday.
