In case you questioned whether or not Nicki Minaj‘s beef with Hot 97 was really over—here’s some evidence.
The Barbz leader made up for lost time last year by surprising fans at the radio station’s famous Summer Jam XX concert in New York City tonight.
YMCMB’s female rapper popped up on stage during 2 Chainz‘s performance to spit her verse on his track “I Love Dem Strippers.”
Afterward, Minaj delivered a few lines from her hit “Beez in the Trap,” before walking over to her former feuding partner, DJ Peter Rosenberg, and giving him a nice, long hug as she exited the stage.
Nicki made a stop at Hot 97 earlier in the week to squash whatever issues still remained between her and Rosenberg after nearly a year of tension.
The DJ apologized for throwing shade at the “Starships” rapper before she hit the Summer Jam stage last year—causing Minaj to pull out of the show completely—and the celeb responded, “It’s water under the bridge…I mean it’s so long ago. I can’t even act like I care anymore, but I appreciate you guys having me.”
And all is well again.
