Nicki Minaj is currently celebrating the release of her latest album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded The Re-Up and her promo run is happening very fast. While in New York, Minaj stopped by her old stomping grounds to giveback to the community she grew up in, Queens, New York. Teaming up with HOT 97’s Hip Hop Has Heart Foundation, the rapper held a Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway to the current students of PS 45. Hit the jump to learn more.
Over 600 attendees, including students, parents, and faculty of PS 45, joined HOT 97 Monday evening to welcome the New York rapper back to her home turf. Nicki certainly did not disappoint her Barbz! After encouraging the students to keep up with their schooling (click here for video), Nicki took photos with all of the awestruck kids and their families. HOT 97’s Hip Hop Has Heart Foundation was onsite to present free Thanksgiving turkeys to the mesmerized fans as they left the school and headed home to regale their families and friends of their encounters with the charismatic performer.
“HOT 97 loves when artists come home to do something great!” states Ebro Darden, HOT 97 Programming Director. “Partnering with Nicki Minaj to feed families for the holidays in her home borough, Queens, was awesome for all!”
