Doin’ It On ‘Em: Nicki Minaj is Working on Two Books

March 13, 2012  |  

Nicki Minaj wasn’t playing when she told Jay Z “I’m coming for your spot, Mr. Mogul.’” The rapper recently told Allure magazine in her April cover feature that she had a little chat with Jay about expanding her empire at the Victoria Secret Fashion Show last year, and now it seems she’s making good on that promise. According to Eurweb, Nicki was recently asked whether she’d ever consider writing a book, and she tweeted that she’s actually already working on two.

The jump isn’t totally surprising since most artists eventually drop a memoir, and Nicki has already expanded her scope far beyond music with a MAC lipstick line and nail polish line through OPI. Nicki didn’t say what the focus of her books will be, but whatever they are, I’m sure they fit in perfectly with her carefully crafted career. She told Allure:

‘I never thought about music as just being the end-all, be-all. I always looked at it like a business, something that I could create an empire out of. So that’s why I’m only about to put out my second album and I’m already thinking about this.”

What do you think about Nicki Minaj as an author? Would you check out her books?

    all I gotta do is SMH oh people are so easy to rip off and gullible nowadays bcs nothing Nicki will write on a paper will benefit me and deserve my hard earned cash not even her music can make me do that. SMH I guess these brainwashed kids will buy it so hey she gotta profit on her gimmicks cos we all know gimmicks come and go

    I doubt she’ll be succesful. After Pink Friday she should have stuck to dropping bomb rhymes and wearing colorful wigs. All those gimmicks, accents and atrocious clothing is annoying. Don’t get me wrong, I used to love Nicki, but pretty much everything after pink friday SUCKED! So maybe she should go back to making mixtapes and start all over again.
