Lil Baby has crowned Nicki Minaj the greatest woman rapper of all time while also claiming her fellow women artists are taking over hip-hop at the moment.

During a conversation on Complex's Goat Talk, Baby sat with his artist Rylo Rodriguez to reveal their "best of" choices in various categories. One of the questions that came up was "GOAT female rapper," and Baby had to contemplate who deserved that title. 

While he was thinking, Rylo revealed he had no idea that GOAT meant "greatest of all time" until Baby said the acronym aloud. The Atlanta rap star couldn't believe Rylo was lost on the acronym, and couldn't hold in his laughter. Eventually, he got it together and picked Nicki Minaj as the greatest woman rapper ever.

After crowning Nicki, Lil Baby said there's a "crazy" number of women rappers who are "running the game right now."

The "We Paid" rapper calling Nicki Minaj the GOAT should come as no surprise. She became a force to be reckoned with thanks to her 2009 mixtape Beam Me Up Scotty, and from there, she established herself as the modern-day Queen of rap with a catalog that's sold over 100 million records worldwide.

Minaj collaborated with Lil Baby on the track "Do We Have A Problem?" off her first greatest hits album, Queen Radio: Volume 1, released in August 2022. The 40-year-old will also be making her official comeback this year with the arrival of her fifth studio album.

Last month, Nicki revealed the album was pushed back from its original date of October 20 to November 17, while also announcing its title, Pink Friday 2.
