Nicki Minaj paid a visit to the set of Inside the NBA and the hosts put together a Cypher in her honor. Kenny Smith, Grant Hill and Shaq flexed their skills to varying degrees of success. Kenny, ever the competitor, actually came with some BARS (relatively speaking) and Shaq took it back to the 90’s with his Shaq Fu. Ms. Minaj did what she does best and kicked an a capella verse, battle-rap style. Even EJ got in on the action with a “drop the mic” moment. Check out the video to be thoroughly entertained.

Which host do you think had the best verse?
