Published Sep 05, 2019Nicki Minaj has announced she is retiring.
The rapper made the sudden announcement this afternoon. Her tweet reads: "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 cus ain't nobody checking me. Love you for LIFE."
As fans will notice, that tweet signs off with a quote from her verse from Alicia Keys' 2012 single "Girl on Fire."
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, ❌ in the box- cuz ain't nobody checkin me. ✅ Love you for LIFE 😘♥️🦄— Mrs. Petty (@NICKIMINAJ) September 5, 2019
Of course, it's hard to tell how serious Minaj actually is. After all, premature retirement announcements in the hip-hop world are all too common. So we'll just have to wait and see.
Just the other day, Minaj appeared on Megan Thee Stallion's video for "Hot Girl Summer."
