(Radio.com) Nicki Minaj is one of 20 artists covering XXL for the magazine's 20th-anniversary issue and the rapper sat down for a lengthy interview with the publication.

She discussed her "super unique" role in hip-hop culture, and took credit for "reintroducing the female rapper to pop culture." Female rappers have always helped innovate the genre, she says, but her combination of music and commercial acumen helped revitalize hip-hop for women in the game. Besides her talent and catalog, Minaj says she pioneered new business opportunities for female rappers.

"My role in hip-hop has been super unique because when my first album came out, there had been so much time where there wasn't a female rap album out that went platinum," she said. "There wasn't a big female rap presence right before I got in. So, my role was really reintroducing the female rapper to pop culture." Read more here.
