Nicki Minaj has received the Key to the City of Queens, New York.

The Pinkprint rapper was given the award by Queens Borough President Melinda Katz for “outstanding career achievements in music.”

Minaj joins the likes of Richie Hawtin, Kendrick Lamar, Fabolous and Solange as musicians who have also been awarded the keys to their hometowns. Back in April, Big Sean became the youngest person to receive the keys to his city, Detroit.
