American rapper, Nicki Minaj announces retirement from music
Hip-hop queen, Nicki Minaj has bowed out of music after fifteen years of active career to face her family.

It’s not clear if Minaj is done with her career or merely taking a temporary rest.
Whichever way, people are already cheering Cardi B to take her place as she’d always coveted.
