Nicki Minaj’s reign in the music industry and the business world overall is unmatched, and given her prowess in making profitable boss moves, the Queens native landed on TIME‘s annual “100 Most Influential People” list.
With her write-up penned by none other than YMCMB label boss, Lil Wayne, the Nawlins native praised the “Monster” lyricist for changing the rap game for not only women, but men as well.
“Her work ethic speaks volumes and has yielded these results,” Weezy writes. “The scary thing is she’s still going. Ha! Nicki Minaj will go down as one of the best to do it in the history of music.”
The Queen Barb also remains the talk of the town after she commanded her role in Barbershop: The Next Cut, which debuted handsomely at the box office last opening weekend. She will also set her sights on the small screen with the launch of her first television series on ABC Family titled Nicki in the near future.
The Pinkprint artist also shares TIME‘s list with Lin Manuel-Miranda, Leonardo DiCaprio, Priyanka Chopra, Ryan Coogler, Kendrick Lamar, and many more.
