Nicki Minaj surprised her most die-hard fans by putting on a free concert at the Roseland Ballroom in Times Square. Hip-hop’s brightest female rapper brought out several guests to help her onstage.

Drake joined her “Make Me Proud” and “Up All Night”; Lil Wayne performed “Take it to the Head.”

She also paid homage to the New York rappers who were prominent a generation before her. Cam’ron performed “I Am Your Leader,” and Foxy Brown performed “BK Anthem.”
