During his photo shoot, the legendary rapper whose relationship with Nicki Minaj has been one of the most successful partnerships in the history of hip-hop declared that she is still the queen of hip-hop.

Speaking to the publication, Lil Wayne said: ‘Call it bias or whatever, but to me, she’s the queen and she’ll forever be the queen, just because of how hard she works and what she came from… She’s always a queen in my eyes,” he explains. “I think Nicki is still the queen of hip-hop simply because who she is. You have to know her like I know her, and to know everything she’s done and what she does, to be who she is and how she is and what she’s become.”
