Nicki Minaj has unveiled the trailer for her upcoming six-part documentary series, Nicky. The series, produced by Bron Studios, is “coming soon,” according to the rapper.
The trailer opens with a clip of a young Minaj performing, as her voiceover reveals, “You don’t have a playbook on how to be a famous rapper. You just learn it as you go. She adds of her rise to stardom, “Female rappers weren’t really on the charts back then. I fight for girls who never thought they could win.
Near the end of the trailer, Minaj reflects on her growth over the past few years. “When you just focus on the business, you can get lost,” she says. “It was time for me to grow up and start loving myself.”
“I took time to perfect this very intimate, delicate, electrifying and inspiring work,” Minaj wrote of the trailer on Instagram. “As I decide on a home for this project, I can’t help but think about what I’m including in this document. Some things are so personal, it’s scary. It’s like NOTHING you’ve ever seen before and I need it handled with care.
Nicky doesn’t have an official release date, but Minaj noted on social media that it’s “coming out early.”
Minaj is expected to headline several music festivals this year. In September, she will join A$AP Rocky and Future for Rolling Loud New York, a three-day event at Queens’ Citi Field. It’s going to be a busy weekend for rap queen “Bussin,” who is set to perform at the iHeartRadio Music Festival at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas the night after her Rolling Loud appearance alongside Megan Thee Stallion and Halsey.
