Nicki Minaj is cementing herself as the queen of hip-hop. Making history recently with the highest-grossing tour by a female rapper of all time, her Pink Friday 2 tour hit the milestone within the first 17 performances. The tour has officially grossed a record-setting $34.9 million USD with under 20 shows.

According to Touring Data, the Trinidadian rapper has also claimed the top spot for having the highest-grossing concert. On March 30, the artist reported a whopping $2.858 million USD at her Madison Square Garden show. It comes as no surprise to hip-hop fans that Minaj still remains at the top, a decade and a half after she entered the industry. When she released the album, it netted the largest first week vinyl sales by any female rapper in history. The track “Super Freaky Girl” off the album saw Minaj hit her first No. 1 single as a solo artist. Her career longevity has been recognized by many across the industry. In a 2023 episode of Stepping Into the Shade Room, Ja Rule reiterated her position in the game stating that before her there were no female MCs like her. “Minaj re-opened the door” for her peers which made way for the likes of GloRilla and Ice Spice, Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion and more.

The Pink Friday 2 tour began in the beginning of March and is set to end on July 14, 2024 in Liège, Belgium. Spanning over 59 shows across two continents, Minaj has already made waves, without being half way done.
