A docu-series on rapper Nicki Minaj is set to premiere on US streaming service HBO Max.
Each of the six half-hour episodes of this untitled project will explore Minaj’s creative mind and tell the story of her personal and professional journey. Minaj will guide viewers through the most challenging and fulfilling times in her life, navigating highs, lows and misguided agendas in her rise to fame and her journey to motherhood.
Minaj’s achievements include 19 Top 10 Billboard Hot 100 hits, and 114 total entries on the Billboard Hot 100 – the record for “Most Billboard Hot 100 Entries Ever by a Female Artist.”
“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,” said Sarah Aubrey, head of original content, HBO Max.
The series is directed by six-time Emmy nominee Michael John Warren, who made his directorial debut with Jay-Z’s Fade to Black.
“Nicki Minaj is one of the most important and influential recording artists of all time; never to be duplicated – and many have tried. We are proud to support this living icon, as she bravely opens her home to the world,” said BRON’s Aaron L. Gilbert and Brenda Gilbert in a joint 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,” commented Warren.
