Lil Wayne has declared Nicki Minaj’s Queen one of her best work yet.
Recall that Nicki dropped the much-anticipated fourth studio album on Friday, August 10. And now her mentor Lil Wayne has sent his approval and affection to the rapper via video.
In the video shared on the Young Money Twitter page, the rap boss gushed about Minaj’s latest accomplishment. “First of all, I just want to congratulate the beautiful queen, Miss Nicki Minaj, for the beautiful album, Queen, which is, to date, in my opinion, one of her best albums yet,” he says.
He continues, “I’m not gonna go out there on a limb and say it’s her best album, because I can still listen to songs [from] when she was about… when she was a teenager, and I still hear vocals and lyrics from there that are, to me, the best thing she’s ever said in her life. So, I’m specific like that, but to date, it’s one of the best albums yet — and I don’t mean out of her catalog. I mean period.”
He further says he wishes that the track Barbie Dreams off the album was “just a dedication song to me.”
