Nicki Minaj is looking for a home for a six-part documentary that tells the story of her life and rises to the top of the rap game.
Rapper Queen took to Instagram on Thursday to tease a trailer for her “very intimate” docu-series that follows her time as a budding rap superstar to become one.
“Coming out EARLIER THANKS FOR THINKING,” Nicki shared in the caption. “I took time to perfect this very intimate, delicate, electrifying, inspiring work.
“As I decide on a home for this project, I can’t help but think about what I’m including in this document,” she continued. “Some things are so personal, it’s scary. It’s like NOTHING you’ve seen before and I need it handled with care. I love you so much. Thank you for the continued support.”
In the trailer, highlights show Nicki’s rise from a starving lyricist in Southside Jamaica Queens to performing in front of thousands of screaming fans in sold-out arenas.
“You don’t get a manual on how to be a famous rapper,” Nicki says in the trailer. “You just learn it as you go.”
Clips show the chart-topping rapper expressing her passion for hip hop and how disappointed she was in the entertainment industry. How she used to self-medicate to deal with the pressure of being accepted in a field where you can’t please everyone.
Fans also get a glimpse of her loving times with husband Kenneth Petty in moments that reflect how Nicki learned to love and accept herself.
“I never wanted to be mainstream,” she says in the trailer, as her 2018 track “Chun-Li” plays in the background. “The mainstream came to me.”
The trailer’s final scenes unfold as his 2011 Billboard Hot 100 hit “Moment 4 Life” plays in the background. A clip shows Nicki giving her fans a heart sign from the stage as they sing her song verbatim.
