It goes without saying: Nicki Minaj is a total sweetheart. When she's not battling it out on the stage, getting up close and personal with her boo Meek Mill or consistently proving she's the best rapper out there, Minaj is...taking care of her fans.

On a recent tour stop in Philadelphia, Nicki swung by the Children's Hospital for an inspiring visit.

Like most artists who collaborate with the Ryan Seacrest Foundation at the hospital, Minaj fields questions from some of the young patients. At one point she even recites the first rap she school, about cookies?
