Nicki Minaj Shocks Fans With Retirement Announcement

Nicki Minaj shocked fans on Thursday (September 5th) with an abrupt tweet saying she’d be retiring from music to get a head start on her family life with partner Kenneth “Zoo” Petty.

Though the message has since been deleted, the Young Money rapper responded to fans on social media saying “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.”


Since rappers rarely, if ever, actually retire, many in the hip-hop community were skeptical of Nicki’s announcement, while others were heartbroken over Minaj stepping away from music and hanging up her mic. Some reports claim that the Queens native had made plans to record with artists in the coming days. The 36-year-old had also told The Joe Budden Podcast that she was working on her fifth album.
