Nicki Minaj paid her respects and honored Juice during an emotional speech at the Billboard Women in Music Awards. While accepting the Game Changer award on December 12, the 37-year-old recalled what it was like to work with the singer. "I recently had the pleasure of working and touring with Juice WRLD. I had a great conversation with him one day and while we walked to the stage, he held my hand and told me to stay calm and to pray. He said he had been trying to do just that," she said.

"I felt like he was a kindred spirit, and looking back now, I wish I did something differently or said something to help," Nicki added. "He spoke to me in detail about how in love he was with his girlfriend and how passionate he was about music and when he was in the studio with me, he did so many songs, so quickly."
