Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, LL Cool J & More Close 2023 VMAs With Hip-Hop 50 Tribute: Watch

Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj held it down at the VMAs on Tuesday night at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. There's no doubt the two became fixtures at the annual award show throughout its history, delivering memorable moments and sound bites that have lived on in the years that followed. However, on Tuesday night, their presence was surely felt from the moment the show began. Lil Wayne entered the stage to perform a medley of songs including "Uproar" and his latest single, "Kat Food."

As for Nicki Minaj, she served as the host for the evening. However, her appearance certainly wasn't limited to that. While she did get to guide fans through the evening, she eventually hit the stage where she performed her new single, "Last Time I Saw You," and debuted an unreleased song from the upcoming Pink Friday 2 titled, "Big Difference." Still, she hit the stage later on to pay homage to hip-hop's major milestone.
