Nicki Minaj is making the rounds in support of her new album, The Pinkprint. Already she’s performed on Saturday Night Live, Ellen, and Jimmy Fallon, plus sat down with Elliott Wilson for an extensive Q&A. But it was her appearance on last night’s edition of Inside the NBA that proved most entertaining.
Minaj teamed with former NBA stars and current TNT analysts Shaquille O’Neal, Grant Hill, and Kenny Smith, along with host Ernie Johnson, for a very special hip-hop cypher. Smith undoubtedly stole the show with a surprisingly solid freestyle, Hill flamed out (in true Duke Blue Devils fashion), and Shaq took us back to the golden era of music, aka 1993’s Shaq Diesel. Johnson’s mic drop was also pretty awesome. Watch the full thing below.
