Last night, Nicki Minaj obliterated the stage at A&E's Shining A Light: A Concert for Progress on Race in America TV special when she chose to recite a few words from the equally as legendary Maya Angelou's seminal (and very pertinent) poem "Still I Rise."

Smiling slyly as she recited lines like "Does my sexiness upset you? / Does it come as a surprise / That I dance like I've got diamonds / At the meeting of my thighs?", Minaj killed the delivery, though that really shouldn't be a surprise. Sparkle, Nicki, sparkle.

Watch the full clip below.
