Nicki Minaj Bows Down In Front Of Her Idol, Lauryn Hill

Nicki Minaj has worldwide fame herself, but she was reduced to fan status over the weekend when she got to meet her idol, Lauryn Hill, backstage at Brooklyn's Barclays Centre on Saturday.

During her high school years, Minaj even included a Lauryn Hill quote in her yearbook: "To survive is to stay alive in the face of opposition."

With the rapper having reached global fame for some time now you would think she would've had the opportunity to meet her idol already. But it would be several years later when that encounter actually happened

Sharing a video of herself bowing at her idol's feet, Minaj described the encounter as an "outer body" experience... "Excuse me while I have an outer body experience. Shaking, crying, a MESS!!!! 😩 this lady is the reason. Omg. The QUEEN. Goddess! The epitome! The bar! The *faints*. Ms Lauryn Hill told me to keep "spittin dat fire". Is this real life!????

"I'm in love with you," Minaj can be heard saying in the video (below). "I’m in love with your spirit, your mind, everything about you."

Do you think we'll be treated to a collab between the two at some point? We can only hope at this stage..
