Some 7 years after first signing her to Young Money Entertainment, Lil Wayne penned a letter in tribute to Nicki Minaj to go with her Time Magazine cover for being one of their 100 Most Influential People. Also on the list are Mark Zuckerberg, Leonardo DiCaprio and more. There are a total of 6 covers featuring 6 different people this year and each of the 100 people comes with a letter of support from a friend, fan, mentor or admirer. Nicki’s letter goes as follows:

You know, in New York they used to have these street DVDs. It just so happened that I appeared in one, and when I looked at the finished product, Nicki Minaj was on a part of the DVD. I was like, “Woooooow!” She was just being Nicki without the glitz and glamour. When I heard the first two and four bars, it wasn’t even about her rapping better than any female rapper. It was about, man, she’s rapping better than other rappers—period.

I always wanted more for my artists and saw Nicki’s potential from the first moment I laid eyes on her. She’s reached far beyond everything I would have imagined. Man, she’s so influential and doing all the right things. She’s an icon, a boss and a role model to all these young girls out here on how to do it the right way. Her work ethic speaks volumes and has yielded these results. The scary thing is she’s still going. Ha! Nicki Minaj will go down as one of the best to do it in the history of music.
