The emcee came face-to-face with her queen backstage at the TIDAL X: 1015 Charity Concert at Barclays Center in Brooklyn this weekend, and her reaction was quite literally all of us.
“Excuse me while I have an outer body experience,” she wrote on Instagram. “Shaking, crying, a MESS!!!! 😩 this lady is the reason. Omg. The QUEEN. Goddess! The epitome! The bar! The *faints*. Ms Lauryn Hill told me to keep “spittin dat fire”. Is this real life!????”
The video clip under which the caption is written shows Nicki literally falling to her knees at the sight of her idol.
“I’m in love with you. Your spirit, your mind, everything about you,” she gushes as Lauryn embraces her.
