Nicki Minaj takes home a W. Earlier tonight (Aug. 20), the superstar artist won the first trip of the night when her extravagant video for “Chun-Li” won the trophy for Best Hip-Hop at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards.
In winning the trophy, Nicki bested the likes of Drake (“God’s Plan), J. Cole (“ATM“), The Carters (“Apeshit“), Cardi B (“Bartier Cardi” featuring 21 Savage) and Migos (“Walk It Talk It” featuring Drake). Clearly, Nicki is winning big.
Combining her knack for theatrics with her supreme bars and Street Fighter-theme, the video for “Chun-Li” was everything that’s great about Nicki Minaj. With that in mind, it’s no wonder she took home this trophy. Check out a photo of her after winning the award below.
