XXL’s in-depth interview with Nicki Minaj for one of their 20th anniversary covers unlocked some valuable gems. The music mogul was asked about her contributions to the hip-hop game, and believes that she helped bring an underrepresented group of entertainers back to the forefront.
“My role in hip-hop has been super unique because when my first album came out, there had been so much time where there wasn’t a female rap album out that went platinum,” she explained. “There wasn’t a big female rap presence right before I got in. So, my role was really reintroducing the female rapper to pop culture.”
