Nicki Minaj Pens Open Letter & Touches On Her Father's Tragic Passing

Having just re-released her classic 2009 mixtape Beam Me Up Scotty, Nicki Minaj has been one of the biggest talking points in the Hip-Hop community this week. In the lead up to dropping new music, the Queen rapper reportedly drove pink Crocs sales through the roof, and after going on Instagram Live on Thursday to tease the arrival of Beam Me Up Scotty on DSPs, she even caught dragged by controversial artist Azealia Banks.

Rather than clapping back at her fellow femcee, however, Nicki Minaj has capitalized on her moment by sharing an insightful and heartfelt open letter via her official website. According to Billboard, she tackles topics such as the joy of spending time with her baby son, her latest Netflix obsessions, and the devastating death of her father, Robert Maraj.
