Nicki Minaj yesterday surprised fans by announcing her retirement from rap, saying she was going to focus on family.
The provocative 36-year-old known for hits like “Super Bass” is engaged to music executive Kenneth Petty, and she recently said a wedding is in the cards in the coming months.
The successful rapper tweets "“I’ve decided to retire & have my family. I know you guys are happy now,” tweeted Nicki before asking her fans to continue to hold her down. “To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me, ❌ in the box- cuz ain’t nobody checkin me. ✅ Love you for LIFE 😘♥️🦄.”.”
Minaj’s profanity-laced lyrics, skin-baring music videos and unique, animated flow first catapulted her to fame in 2010.
Last month she appeared in rising star Megan Thee Stallion’s song “Hot Girl Summer.”
