Texas Councilman Wishes ‘Queen of Rap’ Nicki Minaj Happy Birthday During City Council Session

Make no mistake that Texas’s District 2 Councilman, Jalen McKee-Rodriguez, is a certified Barb. So, of course, he made sure to give the “Queen of Rap” her flowers for her 41st birthday.

Nicki Minaj turns 41 on Friday, Dec. 8, and to celebrate, she released her new studio album “Pink Friday 2.” Texas held a city council session on Thursday where one of Minaj’s loyal fans was present to do his job.

To kick things off, Mckee-Rodriguez did something he’s done in the past and sang praises to Nicki Minaj before returning to regularly scheduled programming. He took to Twitter to share a clip of his Barbified opening statements.

“A moment of joy: Tomorrow is the QUEEN @NICKIMINAJ‘s birthday and, as her appointed Mayor of #GAGCITY, it’s only right I honor her at today’s Council meeting,” he wrote.

The councilman kicked things off “on a positive note” by wishing a “very, very happy birthday to a very special woman.”

“She is an advocate for higher education, a philanthropist, a mogul, a poet, and a mother,” McKee-Rodgriguez said of Nicki Minaj. “She actually has many, many children, sons particularly.”

Citing a few of Nicki’s rap lyrics that referenced the San Antonio Spurs, the Texas councilmember noted the rapper’s witty way of celebrating their home team while inviting “the opposition to collect their L’s in peace.”

“Happy Birthday to the Queen of Rap, Nicki Minaj. I can’t wait to get a copy of her new album “Pink Friday 2,” he said in closing.

It’s not the first time McKee-Rodriguez has rapped Nicki Minaj lyrics at council meetings. The state’s first openly gay Black man elected into office did the same in 2021 and received an endorsement from the “Anaconda” rapper.

“Now barbz, y’all know what to do. Y’all better vote for this great man for the rest of y’all life!!!!” Minaj wrote on Twitter at the time, via My San Antonio.

McKee-Rodriguez had also wished the rap queen a happy birthday for her 39th birthday and followed suit two years later. He has plenty more to celebrate this time as the Barbz enjoys Minaj’s first full-studio album since 2018’s “Queen.”
