Nicki Minaj is once again lifting the velvet rope and letting fans inside of her personal life via an intimate, new six-part documentary.
The “Anaconda” rapper dropped the first trailer for Nicki on Instagram, writing, “Coming out SOONER THANK [sic] YOU THINK.”
“I took some time to perfect this very intimate, delicate, electrifying, inspiring body of work. As I decide on a home for this project, I can’t help but reflect on what I’m including in this doc,” she continued in the caption. “Some things are so personal, it’s scary. It’s like NOTHING you’ve seen before & I need it to be handled with care.”
The documentary, produced by Bron Studios, not only dives into Nicki’s origins as a rapper but also explores her mindset as she navigates the music industry as a female rapper. In a voice-over, the Grammy nominee is heard saying, “No one gives you a manual on how to be a famous rapper. You just learn it as you go.”
Other moments in the two-minute clip sees Nicki declaring, “I never wanted to be mainstream. Mainstream came to me. I take the arts form of rap very seriously.”
The trailer also focuses on the “Chun-Li” rapper discussing sexism in the industry as well as overcoming the lows of her career. “I have to make music in order to stay sane,” the trailer closes, with Nicki performing before scores of screaming fans.
The rapper has tapped six-time Emmy nominated director Michael John Warren to helm this forthcoming project. He previously directed her past documentaries: 2015’s Nicki Minaj: My Time Again and 2010’s Nicki Minaj: My Time Now.
A release date for Nicki has not yet been announced.
