If you’ve ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes at a Nicki Minaj show, right before she hits the stage, this video will give you a better idea. The YMCMB rapper shared a vlog chronicling her experience at Hot 97’s Summer Jam concert last weekend, where she took the stage with Drake, Lil Wayne, Young Thug and more.
In addition to schmoozing with the boys and running down her setlist before showtime, Nicki also got in a lil twerking — until choreographer Laurieann Gibson stepped in and demanded that she get focused. But that’s all a part of the show isn’t it?
We also get to see Nicki practice a few of her lines and share some hugs with Lil Wayne, Birdman and even Rihanna, who all kicked it backstage.
