New Music: I'm Getting Ready - Tasha Cobbs ft Nicki Minaj

Before anyone bashes Nicki Minaj for making a Gospel song with Tasha Cobbs, allow me to be the first to defend her. Psalm 150:6 says, "Let EVERY THING that has breath praise the LORD...", this includes Nicki Minaj—or do we, as Christians, feel that Nicki hasn't "earned" the right to praise God?
