Rapper Nicki Minaj is set to star in a six-part docu-series for HBO Max.
The series will explore the star’s creative mind and tell the story of her personal and professional journey. Nicki herself will guide the audience through the most challenging and fulfilling times in her life in the as-yet-untitled series, each episode of which will be half an hour.
Nicki surprised fans with the special announcement on the 10th anniversary of her debut album ‘Pink Friday’, saying in a video posted to her Twitter page: “I’m very excited to finally share with you guys that my docuseries is coming to HBO Max!
“It’s going to give you guys a raw, unfiltered look at my personal life and my professional journey. And I can’t wait to share it with you.”
The docuseries directed by Michael John Warren, who made his directorial debut with Jay-Z’s 2004 concert documentary ‘Fade to Black’.
Warren previously helmed two MTV documentaries for the 37-year-old rapper: ‘Nicki Minaj: My Time Now’ in 2010 (tied to Pink Friday) and ‘Nicki Minaj: My Time AGAIN’ in 2015.
“Nicki Minaj is a multi-faceted artist, businesswoman, and innovator as well as force to be reckoned with. It’s a privilege to bring this project to HBO Max and provide our viewers with unprecedented access to her life,” Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max, said in a statement.
“I love that this series not only provides an all-access glimpse at one of the most iconic musicians of our generation; it also profiles the brave woman behind the artist, Onika. I believe all of us can learn a great deal from her remarkable professional and personal life. It’s an honor to be entrusted with this dynamic story,” added Warren.
