Nicki Minaj had a huge year in 2015 and TIME Magazine flawlessly captured the essence of it with the release of their “Top 100 Influential People” list.
This year’s list, which was released today includes some of last years biggest stars including Nicki Minaj, Idris Elba, Taraji P. Henson, Ryan Coogler, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Ariana Grande and Kendrick Lamar among others.
It’s no surprise that Nicki Minaj graces the cover, with her reign in the music industry and the business world overall is unmatched. In the article penned by YMCMB leader Lil’ Wayne, Weezy credits Nicki for not only setting the bar high for women, but men as well.
“Her work ethic speaks volumes and has yielded these results,” Lil’ Wayne wrote. “The scary thing is she’s still going. Ha! Nicki Minaj will go down as one of the best to do it in the history of music.”
If you thought Nicki on the list was epic, TIME has also released the official covers for the “Top 100” issue, of which only six of the celebrities were chosen for the cover. This year’s selected covers include Nicki Minaj, Leonado DiCaprio, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg, Christine Lagarde and Priyanka Chopra.
