They say don’t meet your idols because it will end in disappointment. Supposedly, they’ll never meet the lofty expectations you have in your mind. That wasn’t the case last night at the TIDALx1015 concert that featured Nicki Minaj getting the chance to perform onstage with one of her idols in Lauryn Hill.
Afterward, a tearful Minaj bowed at Lauryn’s feet and expressed how much she loved her. With the media loving to play up generational divisiveness in Hip-Hop (Lil Yatchy is the latest example), it’s refreshing to see this type of humility and love in the culture.
