Not only did Nicki Minaj take home the Best Hip-Hop Award at this year's MTV Video Music Awards, but she also slipped out of Radio City Music Hall by a very on brand Queen helicopter for her performance. The New York rapper performed a Queen medley of hits from her new album, with a set dripped in gold. Performing "Majesty" without Eminem, she fully committed to her theme of royalty before bleeding her playful fan-favorite "Barbie Dreams." Minaj teased the crowd, pausing for a second before rapping a few of acapella bars from "Ganja Burn." "Unlike a lot of these hoes whether wack or lit / At least I can say I wrote every rap I spit," she rapped. She closed her set with "FEFE," her collaboration with 6ix9ine. Watch the performance below.
