The rapper, now 40 years old, had previously rapped about her desire to be featured on the renowned fashion magazine’s cover almost 13 years ago, as reported by HotNewHipHop.

In a heartwarming twist, Minaj’s son, affectionately referred to as Papa Bear, joins her in the cover photoshoot, where they can be seen cuddling under an opulent-looking blanket.

In addition to the captivating visuals, Vogue also conducted an interview with Minaj as part of their famous “73 Questions” segment.

During this conversation, the rapper opened up about various personal aspects of her life. She reflected on the joys and challenges of motherhood, her battle with Percocet addiction, her creative process when crafting verses, and more.

Minaj’s rise to fame began with the release of her debut album, Pink Friday, in 2010. The album featured the chart-topping single “Superbass,” which catapulted her into the global spotlight.

In one of the album’s tracks, “Muny,” Minaj even addressed Vogue’s iconic editor-in-chief directly, rapping, “Hey, yo, Anna, hey, yo, Anna Wintour, I’ma need that cover, baby girl.”

Now, after years of hard work and perseverance, Minaj’s wish has finally been granted. This landmark achievement not only showcases her talent and success but also highlights the significance of representation and breaking barriers within the fashion industry.

As Minaj graces the cover of American Vogue, she paves the way for future artists and amplifies the importance of diverse voices in mainstream media.
