If @NICKIMINAJ wants to retire and start a family with me that’s fine by me, I just wish she told me before the media

Nicki really went bar for bar with JayZ on Kanye West on "Monster". She was on a track with one of the greatest Duo in Rap History & Delivered like a Boss. Love or Hate her, you cant deny her impact.

This is real. One of her best ever verses. I mean her versatility is unquestionable. She can do pop songs like " Super Bass" , jump on a @LittleMix track ( Woman Like Me) AND still run rings round many rappers regardless of gender #NickiMinaj https://t.co/kbut0RvlWF

Nicki Minaj: "Fuck with them real niggas who don't tell niggas what they up to. Had to show bitches where the top is, ring finger where the rock is These hoes couldn't test me even if their name was pop quiz. Bad bitches who I fuck with, mad bitches we don't fuck with."

I'm a selfish mother fucker and am certainly not ready for @NICKIMINAJ to retire. Hip hop is already trash and dead when Nic not releasing music….. Imagine what it would be like………. 🙄😒
