Hip-hop artists have paid their respects to Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-reigning queen in British history, who passed away at the age of 96.

The Queen passed away on September 8 at Balmoral, a Scottish estate near Aberdeen, surrounded by her family, who had been summoned to the location earlier in the day as her health began to deteriorate.

The Queen passed away peacefully this afternoon at Balmoral, according to a statement from Buckingham Palace. The King and the Queen Consort will spend this evening and tomorrow in Balmoral before departing for London.

Many Hip Hop and R&B singers, like Nicki Minaj, who is frequently referred to as “The Queen,” have used social media to honor the late monarch. The Young Money rapper expressed her sympathy for QEII’s passing on Twitter and shared the Royal Family’s official statement.

Rapper Eve from the Ruff Ryders posted a famous image of the late monarch along with the message, “Rest in peace #QueenElizabeth.”

As part of her tribute, Janet Jackson shared an old photo of herself meeting the Queen while sporting her Rhythm Nation uniform. “May you Rest In Peace Queen,” she wrote as the caption for the photo.

In 1952, Queen Elizabeth II ascended to the throne. She endured post-war austerity, the transition from empire to the Commonwealth, the end of the Cold War, and the UK’s membership into — and withdrawal from — the European Union throughout her 70-year reign as head of state (EU).

Beginning with Winston Churchill, who was born in 1874, and ending with Liz Truss, who was chosen by the Queen earlier this week, her reign spanned 15 prime ministers.

Below are further responses to the Queen’s passing from the Hip Hop community.
