Is Nicki Minaj Quitting Rap? 5 Rappers Who Also Called It Quits
While speaking with popular U.K. radio jockey Tim Westwood, Minaj was applauded by the DJ for putting street records like “Beez In The Trap” and “HOV Lane” on her new album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.
Westwood continued by saying the record harkened back to Minaj’s rougher sound during her mixtape days.
“It’s what us Barbz needed,” he told Minaj.
However, the Harajuku Barbie revealed that she is not pleased with fan reactions to the album (the album has received generally negative reviews from critics as well), and is considering making her exit from the rap game.
“People aren’t even giving the kid props for taking it back to that essence,” Minaj said in one her signature kooky voices. “This is my fourth mixtape, really. The kid did like that to feed her fans. But really now, the kid thinking maybe she should leave the game.”
And as far as making a return to Twitter, Minaj says that she has no plans on reuniting with her 11 million Twitter Barbz.
“I miss my Barbz. But I can’t come back. I just can’t, Tim. Don’t make me. Please don’t,” said Minaj in her British accent.
