Is Nicki Minaj Really Leaving the Rap Game?

by Risa Dixon

In a recent interview with Tim Westwood from BBC Radio 1Xtra, Nicki Minaj revealed that she is seriously thinking about quitting the rap game in due to all of her detracters. Minaj tells Westwood that she isn’t coming back to Twitter either despite her 11 million fans missing her. Listen to the interview below:



Should Nicki Minaj quit rap or do you think she just made that comment for publicity?

  • jamesfrmphilly

    she could work for mattel………

  • Dreaming

    Yep. I think she made that comment for publicity.

  • I got sense!

    I sure hopes so. She should never have come but if she is leaving I say hallelujah!


    She’s scared subconsciously scared! Someone is coming! They fleeing!

  • Joan

    I sense a nervous breakdown in her future.

  • AI

    Can’t believe someone strong enough to fight her way to the top would be so weak when she got there. Disappointing.

  • Roses

    Poof Pow Be gone! There will be another and another and another female rapper….Hell there already is a new “freshman” class of them…So sick of these grown ass folks having tantrums…This chick is almost 30, grow up!

  • apple

    Hallejuh !

  • girlformerlyknownasgrace

    Is she serious? Can we get that in writing, notarized, and stamped with the Wu-Tang Clan Seal of Approval, witnessed by the BET Governance Board?

  • Bee

    Lawd knows, I hope she’s leaving the rap game (for my sanity and for her own sanity). (She should take several other male rappers with her, including her whole Cash Money crew, Kanye, Jay Z, I could go on forever.) But I don’t believe her. She’s not leaving. She’s the kind of annoying gimmick that never goes away when you want her to go away.

    @girlformerlyknownasgrace: I nearly peed my pants at “Wu-Tang Clan Seal of Approval”. LOL. Anyway, yes, I need her to go away. I sat there listening to that interview, wondering what the heck is wrong with this girl.

    There is a saying like this “Only one himself knows if the shoes match his feet or not”。If you really love her /him, race, color or age. ain’t nothing but a number for these loved-up A-Listers. My BF and I both think so! He is a black .We met via _______Blackwhiteplanet,,C0′M____, For hot and sexy singles online dating. If you are interested in meeting lovely beautiful interracial single, you have reached the right place.

  • OMSS

    What? She hasn’t left already? As far as I am concern she left the rap game when she signed with Cash Money…

    I don’t think she is all there to be honest. After reading about her different alter egos (which were all incoherent, especially the 4 year old character ‘Loriee’) it just made me feel sad for her. Maybe she is doing just fine (she is rolling in it financially, so we know she fine in that area!), IDK.

  • vnusnaries

    o don’t tease me. i hope this is true

  • Perverted Alchemist

    Well…that sounds like great news to me. Now, if only these other rappers would follow suit:

    Drake, J. Cole, Childish Gambino, Lil’ Wayne, Machine Gun Kelly, Wale, Rick Ross, Young Jeezy, Eminem, Future, Tyga and Mac Miller.

  • Perverted Alchemist

    And Big Sean…he can get the hell on, too!

  • queenlaven

    @pervertedalchemeist I agree except for Eminem and J. Cole!

  • Pat

    Oh..come on guys you can’t believe she was actually being serious in that interview. Clearly she is playing around hence the the different egos. Wow, you can’t take Nicki literally. Can’t believe you guys fell for it. ha ha ha ha..

  • Perverted Alchemist

    J. Cole has to go- he’s only famous because of his association.
    Eminem should have went a long time ago- he hasn’t made a good record in years (12 years, to be exact!)

  • mamareese

    Please doint be playing like this…leave for real. She has gone wayy too left field. And there is only one Brittany Spears and one Beyounce and one Busta….them lanes been taken she has nothing to offer.

  • Misty_Moonsilver

    What in the heck is she sayin’??? She sounds seriously schizophrenic…

  • Krysie

    Good riddance!

  • Purple Rain

    Hmmm, I’m torn on this matter. I think Nicki has some serious talent when it comes to her ability to spit lyrics (mixtape days), especially as a woman in the game. But I do think she could benefit from the use of several anti-psychotic medications. I’m just sayin’….

  • Tricia

    Ouch….. but I wouldn’t be losing any sleep over it!!

  • Princess Di

    Holy hell that was funny!

  • Princess Di

    Rejoice! God is so good! What did we do to deserve this gift, Lord?

    Also – Something in the milk just ain’t clean with that girl!

  • cabugs

    It’s so sad, but there is something in the air of the music industry that just makes wrecks out of people. I hope she will be okay, and that someone will help her out if she is going through tough times, but predictions like yours mostly only prove true later (unfortunately). These things are getting predictable. I hope someone will be there for her.

  • cabugs

    Because the top isn’t so pretty once you get there. My reply to Joan about sensing a nervous breakdown in her future:

    “It’s so sad, but there is something in the air of the music industry that just makes wrecks out of people.

    PUBLICITY STUNT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • serwaah

    was she ever hip hop? hmmm, i thought it was crap hop, junk pop? i just think she’s crying out for help and her agent/crew are milking $ out of this multi personality thing. there are ppl out there who suffer from these and contstantly require medication.
    talent she got, brains that’s up for debate.
    oh well back to my underground hip hop.

  • Tonton Michel

    Heard she is quitting to devote full time to running her butt injection company called Fix-A-Flat.

  • H

    Nicki Minaj is such a joke. This is the kind of stuff you have to do when you don’t really have talent. It’s common in the hip hop and pop world. I’m usually embarrassed at the Grammy’s for people like her when country, R&B, and blues singers get up and perform. It’s such a huge contrast in talent. Does Adele have to do stuff like this? Does Maxwell have to do this crap? No. They let their musical talent speak for them.

    I was just surprised by how quickly she sold out. At one point she was talking about keeping things at a certain level for her younger fans, then she’s making Stupid Hoe. I’m one that thinks that hip hop and pop music are for grownups. I just didn’t like how she tried to put herself out there as a role model.

  • @Work_Bored

    OMG lol fix a flat he he he
