Nicki Minaj

In April 2012, Nicki Minaj hinted at retiring from rap. "People aren't even giving the kid props for taking it back to the essence," Nicki told U.K. radio host Tim Westwood, referring to her album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. "The kid did like that so she could feed her fans. But really, now the kid is thinking maybe she should leave the game." Nicki's obviously had a change of heart.
