The Super Bass rapper took to Twitter on Thursday to announce that she is retiring.

“I’ve decided to retire & have my family. I know you guys are happy now. To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me, X in the box- cuz ain’t nobody checkin me. Love you for LIFE.”

Based on this post, we can safely say that Nicki is ready to become a mother and a wife.

We reported previously that Nicki Minaj revealed on Queen Radio that she, at that time, had 80 days left on her marriage license and she intended on marrying her boyfriend Kenneth Petty before it expired.

Minaj’s retirement seems to be at a strange time as there are many new female rappers coming on the scene. Megan thee Stallion has been blowing up while Cardi B continues to dominate the game. Is the competition too much for Nicki? Or is it that she feels she has alreay accomplished enough?

If you did not know, the Trinidadian born rapper , earlier this year, became the first female rapper to sell 100 million units across her albums, singles and features, certified by the RIAA.

She also has a Guiness World Record for most Billboard Hot 100 entries by a solo female artist. Minaj has been nominated for 10 Grammy awards and has raked in 5 MTV awards.

With such a legacy, Nicki probably thinks it’s time to focus on something new.
