Nicki Minaj Wins The People's Champ Award for XXL Awards 2024

On Monday (Feb. 19), the victor of the People's Champ Award was announced as a result of fan's votes. Nicki Minaj was one of 20 artists nominated this year including Drake, Playboi Carti, Yeat, Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Durk and Kid Cudi, among others.

Nicki Minaj being crowned as The People's Champ may not come as a surprise considering the dedicated fan base she has. As the only fan-voted category for the XXL Awards, Nicki's Barbz made sure she came out on top. The Queens rapper has been in full album promo mode for her Pink Friday 2 LP, which arrived last December. For months leading up to the album, Nicki was active on social media more than ever before. The constant communication was a welcome treat for her Barbz.
