Nicki Minaj to Release "Intimate" 6-Part Docuseries About Her Life and Career

Nicki Minaj is giving her life and career the documentary treatment in a self-titled six-part series. On July 28, the "Do We Have a Problem?" rapper released a trailer for the forthcoming docuseries, "Nicki," on Instagram. It highlights her rise to fame and how she navigates the ups and downs of success. "I took some time to perfect this very intimate, delicate, electrifying, inspiring body of work," she captioned the video. "Some things are so personal, it's scary. It's like NOTHING you've seen before & I need it to be handled with care."

The trailer, set to Minaj's "Moment 4 Life" and "Chun-Li," includes footage of her early rapping days, live performances, and a confessional-style interview. "You don't get a manual on how to be a famous rapper. You just learn it as you go," she begins in the two-minute clip. " . . . I never wanted to be mainstream. Mainstream came to me." The video concludes with a message that reads: "A story so raw, it can only be told by a legend this real."

Although Minaj shared that her "Nicki" documentary hasn't found a home to air it yet, it appears to be produced by Bron Studios, per the tag in her Instagram post. The series also doesn't have a release date yet, but the rap star assured fans it's "coming out sooner than you think."

Minaj is gearing up to drop a new episode of Apple Music's "Queen Radio" on Aug. 11, as well as a single titled "Freaky Girl," which will release the following day. Watch the teaser trailer for "Nicki" above.
