Young Thug Gives Nicki Minaj Her ‘Top 5’ Flowers Young Thug took to his Instagram Story to show Nicki Minaj love. Thugger said, Nicki Minaj definitely top 5 artists of all time. For me though. Just for me. I think for the majority of people in the world she definitely in the top 5. Young Thug is ranking Nicki top 5 with all artists. Do you agree with his ranking or would you separate Nicki into an overall rap category and keep her separate from other genres?
