She’s keeping it moving.


Nicki Minaj may still be feeling the burn from the 2017 BET Awards on Sunday night (June 25) when the rap titan lost Best Female Hip-Hop Artist to nemesis Remy Ma after nabbing the award for seven consecutive years. Still, it appears as if the rapper is keeping things moving.

Even though she has yet to sound off on Remy’s win, Minaj did just score the key to her hometown of Queens, New York. Just one day after BET’s ceremony, the Harajuku Barbie took to Instagram to share a photo of the gold piece, which was presented to her by Queens Borough President Melinda Katz for her “outstanding career achievements in music.”

“What a pleasant surprise? Wish I was there to receive it. Thank you so much!” she captioned the photo before telling Katz that she hopes she can meet with her before her next flight out of the Big Apple. Take a look at the post below.

Minaj is likely set to fly out of New York after her performance at tonight’s inaugural NBA Awards, which just so happens to be hosted by her friend and Young Money peer Drake. You can catch her and a string of basketball heavyweights during the ceremony, which airs live at 9 PM ET on TNT.
