The Queen Barb flaunted her special honor on Instagram on Monday (Jun. 26). The snap featured a golden key, inscribed with her birth name, Onika Tanya Maraj. The honor was presented to her by Queens Borough President Melinda Katz for her “outstanding career achievements in music.”
“What a pleasant surprise? Wish I was there to receive it,” the rapper wrote in the caption of her picture. She’s currently in NYC, where she will appear on the Drake-hosted NBA Awards, which airs tonight at 9 p.m. EST. “Thank you so much! #MelindaKatz hopefully we can meet b4 I fly out again #NewYork #Queens.”
Congrats Nicki on the honor, keep making New York and Queens proud.
