Nicki Minaj is a great daughter. Even before her Pink Friday debut album dropped in 2010, Nicki used the little bit of rap money she saved up to buy her mom, Carol Maraj, a lovely home. The scene was a heartwarming moment documented in the rap diva’s MTV special, Nicki Minaj: My Time Is Now where the star also talked about the importance of family and finding happiness in freeing them from a life of struggle.
In honor of her birthday today, Nicki shouted out her special girl with a special sweet message all aging mothers love to hear. “Bowing down to her queen,” the rapper wished her adorable mom a happy birthday and said she found the fountain of youth, complimenting, “she’s aging backwards” and continuing, “I love you, Mommy.”
