In news that has absolutely shocked us to the core, Nicki Minaj has decided to retire from doing music to focus on having a family.
The award winning rapper took to her Twitter to announce the news to shocked fans putting up a short tweet which read: “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”
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 😘♥️🦄

It seems as if this is a move to fully focus on her marriage and potential family with Kenneth Petty whom she hinted at getting married to in July.
The news left the internet in tatters with fans refusing to believe that it’s the truth.
“@NICKIMINAJ can u please just address this retirement thing. You e never left us so hurt your entire career. We’re just hurting Nicki 🙁 it’s US it’s the barbz plz… 😩” said a distraught fan.
Nicki Minaj has kept tweeting trying to console some fans like the one above to whom she responded to.
” I’m still right here. Still madly in love with you guys & you know that. In hindsight, this should’ve been a Queen Radio discussion & it will be. I promise u guys will be happy. No guests, just us talking about everything. The tweet was abrupt & insensitive, I apologize babe ♥️🙏” she said.
So we can probably still expect some sort of explanation for this sudden decision and while she is well within her rights to call time on her career whenever she wants, it isn’t unfair for fans to express the need for an explanation.
Nicki has been in the rap game for about 15 years and is one of the foremost rappers in the world. She leaves with her legacy intact.
