Nicki Minaj has just announced she will be retiring from music to focus on her family.
She recently tweeted, “I’ve decided to retire & have my family. I know you guys are happy now. To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me, X in the box – cuz ain’t nobody checkin me. Love you for LIFE.”
Minaj is engaged to music executive Kenneth Petty and has recently said that a wedding should happen in the next few months.
Earlier this year in June, Minaj released a new single called Megatron and said she was working on her fifth studio album.
It has not been confirmed whether this is a temporary break or permanent, but if it is forever, we will always remember her crazy antics and unforgettable lyrics.
“When I started rapping, people were trying to make me like the typical New York rapper, but I’m not that. No disrespect to New York rappers, but I don’t want people to hear me and know exactly where I’m from.”
“I was just doing regular-sounding rap that anyone could hear and identify with. But once I started doing all that weird shit – I’m not mad at it because it got everyone’s attention,” said Minaj on her music.
