    Colorful, pink-loving rapper Nicki Minaj spoke to Funkmaster Flex on his Full Throttle TV spot about being dubbed the "New Queen of Hip-Hop" by Rolling Stone, in a move that no doubt infuriated her nemesis Lil' Kim.

    "It was very, very amazing to me," Minaj said. "I was so excited 'cause [Rolling Stone's] really respected, and then when I went on all the TV shows, they kept on saying, 'She's been dubbed the New Queen of Hip-Hop by Rolling Stone magazine,' so I was like, that happened at the perfect time...I'm honored because I obviously have been working hard to get to this place. Whether or not I'm the queen of anything, everybody's gonna have their own opinion and I don't do this thinking I'm the queen of this, I'm the queen of that. I just feel like I'm working hard and I just want people to recognize that."

    All hail the (new) Queen! Nicki, you've earned it, lady! Rap royalty is what you are.

    Are you a fan of Nicki Minaj? Is she the new Queen of Hip-Hop?
