Rap star Nicki Minaj has announced she is leaving the music business because she wants to make family life her priority.
The 36‑year‑old rapper is known for her outlandish outfits, bizarre alter egos and fast flow, made the announcement in a tweet.

It is not clear if Minaj is done with her career or merely taking a temporary rest.
Over the course of her decade‑long career, Minaj has been nominated for 10 Grammys, earned a Guinness World Record in 2017 for most Billboard Hot 100 entries by a solo female artist and hauled in five MTV Video Music Awards.
