Nicki Minaj is cooking up something, but you'll have to wait until Thursday (July 8) to find out what it is. In a tweet on Tuesday the rapper revealed that "there's something I URGENTLY need to share w/you guys." The announcement was accompanied by a one-second loop video of Nicki rocking straight pink hair, matching nails and a plunging-neckline top staring into the camera.
"I'll go LIVE on IG THURSDAY @ 10:30 PM EST," she continued. "No, I won't be late. In fact, I'll be early. This is VERY VERY VERY IMPORTANT. Love you guys so much." New mom Minaj hasn't released an album since 2018's Queen and her last solo single was 2020's "Yikes," but she's been creeping back into our ears again recently with the re-release of her 2009 mixtape Beam Me Up Scotty, which features "Seeing Green" with her Young Money crewmates Drake and Lil Wayne.
At press time a spokesperson for Minaj could not be reached for additional comment on what the announcement might entail. One thing that could be on her plate soon if Lil Kim has anything to do with it is a Verzuz battle, which Minaj's sometimes rival recently teased she would be up for if Nick agreed. Kim revealed that she would love to go mic-to-mic with Minaj during a red carpet interview at last month's BET Awards, a gauntlet that Nicki has yet to pick up.
