Taraji P. Henson Does Nicki Minaj Impression on 'Saturday Night Live'

(Radio.com) It was bound to be a musical evening on Saturday Night Live with Empire's Taraji P. Henson in the house. But a Henson impersonation of one of hip-hop's biggest stars in Nicki Minaj? Well, it wasn't a shock but exciting nonetheless.

That's exactly what happened shortly into the run time of Henson's SNL hosting debut as she and cast members did their best impressions for a faux making-of trailer of Home 2, the purported sequel to Dreamworks' Home starring Jim Parsons and Rihanna.

Cast member Sasheer Zamata does her own Minaj but was relegated to a Rihanna rendition instead while Henson attempted her Nicki Minaj, calling attention-as many Minaj impressions do-to the juxtaposition between the rapper's quiet and more harrowing styles.

Also involved? Kendrick Lamar, Missy Elliott, Rick Ross and even Die Antwoord. Watch it here.
