While you attempt to sift through the live stream rip of Nicki Minaj’s amazing all-star Pepsi concert, take a minute to hone in on the biggest moment of the night. After Nicki brought out her biggest female rap influence, Foxy Brown, the Queens-bred rapper took time to really pay homage.

Broken Silence changed my fuckin’ life,” Nicki told the crowd. “I always loved Foxy but when she put out Broken Silence I knew [she] was an innovator, an intelligent, beautiful, feisty, crazy sometimes, but ahead of your time.”
