EMMIS Top 40/Rhythmic WQHT (HOT 97)/NEW YORK partnered with hip-hop artist NICKI MINAJ to give back to the community she came from for this THANKSGIVING. Before heading out on the European leg of her ROMAN RELOADED TOUR, NICKI MINAJ joined HOT 97’s HIP-HOP HAS HEART FOUNDATION MONDAY (11/19), at her alma mater PS 45 in QUEENS to give current students free THANKSGIVING turkeys.
Over 600 attendees, including students, parents, and faculty of PS 45, joined HOT 97 to welcome NICKI back to her home turf. After encouraging the students to keep up with their schooling, NICKI took photos with all of the kids and their families. HOT 97’s HIP-HOP HAS HEART FOUNDATION was onsite to present free THANKSGIVING turkeys to the mesmerized fans as they left the school and headed home to tell their families and friends of their encounters with NICKI.
In a press release, HOT 97 PD EBRO DARDEN commented, "HOT 97 loves when artists come home to do something great! Partnering with NICKI MINAJ to feed families for the holidays in her home borough, QUEENS, was awesome for all!"
Since the inception of HOT 97’s HIP-HOP HAS HEART FOUNDATION in the spring of 1994, the FOUNDATION has committed itself to fulfilling its mission: to be responsive to the needs and concerns of the community and promote a positive environment.
