Nicki Minaj has decided to retire.

LOS ANGELES — “Take this job and shove it…” Nicki Minaj has decided to retire from the music industry because she has better sh*t to do… like concoct a ménage and have a few babies with her felonious inamorato, Kenneth Petty. The 36-year-old lyricist announced the revelation Thursday morning via Twitter. “I’ve decided to retire & have my family,” Nicki tweeted. “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.”

If in fact she decides to drop the mic for good, Nicki leaves behind one helluva legacy. The 10-time Grammy nominee owns a Guinness World Record for most Billboard Hot 100 entries by a solo female artist. She’s also the first female rapper to sell 100 million units of her music.

If you recall, Nicki and Kenneth procured a marriage license earlier this year despite the fact he’s a registered sex offender with a murder conviction. Do you agree with Nicki’s decision?

  8. Love her so much 😭

  9. Beautiful Girl

    This is why females NEVER stay on top forever because they want to quit for family while males continue their career til the day they die because they can multi-task.

  10. I hope she’s just trolling… (She loves to troll but I don’t think she would joke about something like this…) If it makes her happy she should do whatever she wants, marry this man, become a mom and create a family, but I will really miss her if she leaves. Sometimes she might be a little rude, but in my opinion she is a very strong woman with a good heart and a legend, nobody will ever be able to replace her. Period. 👑

  11. Her music is terrible. This is good.

  12. Thats right because she cant do it against cardi B period. And she is fat as fuck now lol

  13. Maybe now yall will appreciate her.

  14. Fine! Im happy for her, but WILL BE MISS HER❤️

    It’s possible she is retiring or going into semi-retirement so she can either get pregnant or (if she’s pregnant already) enjoy her pregnancy. And part of what she said was from the song she did with Alicia Keys years ago.

  16. Oh that’s so sad for you Barbz but all I gotta say is this…

    Thank God. I’ve been waiting for this day to come. I don’t know if this is true but if it is good. That way other female rappers can shine instead of people always making female rap all about her. People really have the nerve to call this tramp the queen of hip-hop?! Give me a break. Lauryn Hill, Lil Kim, Missy Elliott, Queen Latifah & MC Lyte are the true queens of hip hop. So Nicki Minaj go away and never come back.

  17. ExpectoPatronum28

    Yes, go have a baby with your rapist boyfriend. No one cares.

  18. Good Riddance

  19. The Queen 👑 of rap ain’t going no where 😫

  20. She’s tired of trying to keep up with cardi B, who almost everybody likes better.

  21. Retired while she’s still on top , leave on a high note and create a family 🤷🏽‍♀️tbh I’m not mad she left behind some good music like lately I haven’t been feeling it so I think it’s good leaving while ur on top but drake Wayne and Nicki need to come together one last time

  22. She’ll be back if that money start looking funny…

  23. She can’t leave us with trash cardi b

  24. Nicki Minaj she returned because cardi B and took her spot is more females that’s way 10 times to a 100 times hotter then Nicki Minaj ain’t nobody got time for stupid hoes ain’t nobody got time for stupid ass shit that she be saying her raps 20 years from now nobody’s going to remember her she does get love from the new Young crown she’s no longer the queen so yeah of course she will want to retire she pushing 40 and still think she 27 come on man cardi B took her spot she can’t compete with cardi B cardi B on a new Waze Nicki Minaj still on that or rap like Lil Wayne type shyt yes not forget Remy Martin ate her butt up then cardi B came on the scene and took everything over after that cardi B the hottest female rapper out right now on the radio hands down and if you say Nikki the hottest I think you talk about 2009-2010 type shit but anyway cardi B the hottest female rapper on the radio hands-down she everywhere everywhere hate it or love it she got her spot to for all y’all Nicki fans I love Nicki but it’s the truth

  25. Bye Felicia , Lil Kim wannabe 😂

    I think she loves this guy so much hes probly one of those crazy jealous fools and she tryin to hold it together for them by giving up her carreer cuz he cant handle her being so famous she needs him to outshine her maybe he will calm dwn that way. But he served 7 yrs! U can take a boy out the hood but u cant take the hood out the homeboy… I would not be with no fool carrying a fkn gun hell naw not with that history or an angry attitude better safe than sorry!
