Nicki Minaj threw her support behind New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul, encouraging people to get out and vote for them in the New York Primary elections.

She also told New Yorkers to vote for Letitia James — running for NY Attorney General — in a tweet Thursday to her millions of followers, according to the Hill.

“New Yorkers [and] all NYCHA residents its time to get JUSTICE,” the 35-year-old rapper tweeted. “VOTE Thur. Sept. 13 for Gov. [Andrew] Cuomo, Lt. Gov. [Kathy] Hochul & Tish [Letitia] James.”

“They know how to work for the people to make NY even GREATER. Spread the word,” she added. “See you at the Polls!”

The “Bang Bang” singer previously threw her support behind then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2015 during an interview with Billboard magazine when she referred to the Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, as “hilarious.”

“I support her as a woman,” Minaj explained. “Am I convinced that she should be the next president? I still want to be open-minded about everyone. Obviously, I identify with her struggles as a woman. I identify with the fact that when she’s in that room and there are nothing but men there — there’s sometimes something in her that must feel intimidated. But I think that she uses that and turns it into a strength.”
