Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne is 100 percent here for the official Nicki Minaj return. The self-proclaimed “Best Rapper Alive” has dished on his admiration for his longtime friend and Young Money protégé.

On Sunday, Nicki went to Instagram to post up footage of Wayne speaking on her greatness.

“First of all, I’d like to congratulate the beautiful queen Miss Nicki Minaj from the beautiful album Queen which is today, to date, in my opinion one of her best albums yet. I’m not going to go out on a limb and say it’s her best album because I can still listen to songs from when she was about, I don’t know the age, but like when she was a teenager and I’ll still hear vocals or lyrics from there that’s the best thing she’s said in her life. So, I’m specific like that. But today, it’s one of her best albums yet not out of her catalogue but I mean period. It is one of the best albums out there period. And when I say yet, I mean I haven’t heard anything yet better than when I’m hearing from that woman. She is such a queen. What a great title and she’s spitting her a** off. She’s going crazy on the album.”

This weekend, Nicki shocked fans by releasing her new Nas-featured “Sorry” duet.

A few hours prior, Nicki’s former rival Funk Flex announced he would premiere the Nas collabo.

In early January, a report emerged about Nicki and Nas quietly splitting last month.

There were recent reports Nicki was pregnant, but we’re told there’s no truth to that. Both superstars will be getting back to strictly biz, we’re told — Nas focusing on his record label and his chicken and waffles joint, Sweet Chick. We’re told they respect each other, and there won’t be any trash talking — but, on the other hand, we’re also told they won’t be hanging out as friends either. (TMZ)
