There's a popular saying in hip hop culture, "Respect the OGs".

It's an ethos that young artists in the game learn from the jump and the legends in the industry expect it to be adhered to strictly. This is probably why at the recently held Tidal concert in New York Nicki Minaj did the last thing we expected to see the multiple award winning rapper do when she met her idol.

Upon coming face to face with the larger than life Lauryn Hill, Nicki Minaj promptly threw herself as Ms Hill's feet in a sign of respect and admiration. Clearly taken aback by the gesture, Lauryn Hill then tries to get a starstruck Nicki to stand up before the two share a warm embrace. It truly was a special moment for both artists who are incredible in their own right.
