Nicki Minaj fans, or ‘Barbz,’ have more content from the rapper to look forward to. The rapper took to Twitter Thursday evening, and posted the two-minute trailer for her docuseries. This six-episode project is different from the 2010 film, Nicki Minaj: My Time Now, as it’s been 12 years since her initial documentary was released.

While fans celebrated the release of the trailer, others are still focused on her husband, Kenneth Petty’s legal troubles. In fact, Nicki critics and supporters have been exchanging not-so-kind words on “stan Twitter” all day. Some claim Minaj is dodging accountability for supporting her husband through sexual assault allegations. Others claim Petty is innocent, and his past has nothing to do with the rapper. Regardless, the docuseries is sure to be a hit amongst fans and those who are curious about how Nicki has been doing.
Docuseries, A Longtime Coming
The series explores the highs and lows of Minaj’s career, and its effect on her personal life. In the trailer, Nicki talks about facing hardship in a male-dominated industry. This tracks, as there was a period of time when it seemed only one woman could dominate the hip-hop industry at a time. That kind of pressure comes with a lot of reward, but also, consequences. For instance, she admitted to self-medicating to deal with the pressures of her career. Earlier in April, Nicki tweeted “I used to b happy when I was high, now I’m happy when I’m sober. No judgment to anyone. Be gentle with yourself.”
When you are just focused on the business, you can lose yourself…It was time for me to grow up and start loving myself.
The trailer hints at difficulties in her personal life, however, the nature of those difficulties are unknown. There is no specific release date, but when Minaj posted the trailer to Instagram, she said it’s “coming out SOONER THAN YOU THINK.”
