Nicki Minaj Says Hov Is Her Favorite MC

Queen Of Hip Hop tells 5 Magazine Jay's words are like the gospel.

Published June 2, 2011

Nicki Minaj may be the Queen of Young Money, but she got her favorites outside of the Lil Wayne-led clan too. In an interview for this month's 5 Magazine cover story, Minaj says she takes what Jay-Z says as if it came straight out of the holy book. "It was like whatever Jay-Z says is the gospel because he was smart," she said. "I was always attracted to intelligent rappers." Minaj acknowledges that she also owes a lot to Lil Wayne and sights him as one of her faves as well. Other news in Minaj mania, the male-female cover duo Karmin recently teamed up with ?uestlove for a rather interesting cover of "Super Bass."
