Rapper Nicki Minaj decided to jump in the tv pond and will produce and star in a sitcom based on her life. The series is scheduled to start shooting later this year in Queens, New York according to The Hollywood Reporter: The half-hour, single-camera comedy is based on Minaj’s family’s immigration from Trinidad in the early ’90s. The untitled series will center on her childhood in Queens with her vibrant family and how her evolution led to her eventual rise to international fame. The project will shoot in Minaj’s hometown of Queens, New York starting this winter.
“This is one of the more unique adventures I’ve ever embarked on,” said Minaj in a statement. “I couldn’t be more proud and excited to team up with an amazing group of people to give the world something really special.”
The million dollar question is will Queens native and ex Safaree be played by rapper Meek Mill or will Meek Mill play himself and get Drake to play Safaree? And what will she call the show, The Minaj Chronicles? Comprehensive minds want to know!
