As someone who isn’t really a fan of Nicki this won’t affect me but it is surprising. Rumor is fam hate is the underlying reason for her retiring. Assuming it’s real and not some weird marketing tool I can’t imagine she will stay retired for long. I’m sure she has business partners so I don’t think money will be anything she has to worry about but I can’t see Nicki Minaj just disappearing from the public eye but I don’t think she could do what Joe Budden did and transition to a media role. I am way more interested in retired Nicki then any music she would be dropping.
