Nicki Minaj Shares Trailer for Six-Part Docu-Series, ‘Nicki’

A six-part documentary series on the career of Nicki Minaj is “coming soon.”

Late Thursday evening, the rapper surprise-dropped a two-minute trailer on Twitter with the caption: “Coming SOON!!!! The #NickiDocumentary you didn’t know you needed. Love you so much.”

Produced by the Canadian company Bron Studios, the “Nicki” trailer starts with a clip of a young Minaj rapping and reflecting on her early come-up.

She says, “Female rappers weren’t really charting at the time. I’m fighting for the girls who never thought they could win.”
