NEW YORK (CBS) She's been dubbed "The Lady (Gaga) of Hip-Hip" by Billboard Magazine - and now rapper and Lil Wayne protege, Nicki Minaj is the pink lady lipstick queen at M.A.C.

The rapper has teamed up with the popular cosmetics line to create a limited-edition lipstick shade named after her debut album, "Pink Friday."

A longtime fan of M.A.C., Minaj says she even wore the make-up to her prom.

The colorful rapper even shed a tear over her new psychedelic shade when meeting the M.A.C team for the first time.

"They had no idea how much this meant to me," she told People. "I am super excited about the lipstick because I never imagined that M.A.C would even recognize me this early on in my career. For them to name the lipstick after my album makes me feel like I can do anything in the world because they are such an important brand and such an important staple in our culture."

How much time do Minaj-iacs have to get their lips on this limited-edition shade?

M.A.C's "Pink Friday" will be available exclusively online, for four Fridays only, beginning Nov. 26 and running through Dec. 17.
