And the internet has gone crazy.
Rap icon, Nicki Minaj is apparently quitting the music industry.
The 36 year-old broke the news to her 20 million Twitter followers on Thursday. And the reasoning behind her decision is quite personal.
Minaj has recently suffered quite a lot of backlash on social media regarding her 'husband' Kenneth Petty, who served time for manslaughter and first degree attempted rape when he was 16, and also has an extensive rap-sheet.
Oh no. We can understand fans concern for their rap queen.
Minaj announced her retirement from music on twitter saying, ‘I’ve decided to retire and have my family! I know you guys are happy now.”
"To my fans, keep reppin' me, do it til' da death of me."
Here's some Minaj to lessen the blow.
