Nicki Minaj may be one of hip-hop’s most successful emcees, and she may be able to brunch with Beyonce and Jay Z whenever their schedules permit, but that didn’t stop the Pinkprint artist from completely losing her mind backstage at the TidalX:1015 concert when she met Ms. Lauryn Hill.
After Minaj performed a string of her hits in front of a packed Barclay Center, Hill kept the momentum going. Fans were on their feet while the Grammy award winner sang uptempo version from her classic album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.
Yet the admiration only continued when Minaj bumped into Hill backstage. Losing all her cool and dropping to her knees to bow in front of her, Nicki Minaj gave the singer-songwriter and rapper the utmost praise while meeting Hill for the first time.
“No! No! No! please,” Minaj said to Hill as she bowed to her feet. “I’m in love with you. Your spirit, your mind.” Hill graciously accepted Minaj’s kind words and later hugged her. Minaj continued to fan out posting pictures with Hill completely in shock she was hugging the artist she quoted in her high school yearbook.

I guess Nicki now knows how fans feel when they meet her. Love the love.
