Nicki Minaj Opens Up About Her Father’s Death: ‘May His Soul Rest in Paradise’

Nicki Minaj has been making headlines since her return following a social media hiatus. She came through with a new song ‘Seeing Green’ featuring Drake and Lil Wayne. Her verse is quite controversial with fans believing she took shots at Megan Thee Stallion.

Nicki also re-released her classic 2009 mixtape Beam Me Up Scotty on streaming platforms. She went live with her fans which caught Azealia Banks attention.

Azealia Banks dragged and body shamed Nicki Minaj but, she’s chosen to ignore. Instead, she shared 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.

“Tho I can’t really bring myself to discuss the passing of my father as yet; I can say it has been the most devastating loss of my life,” Nicki reveals. “I find myself wanting to call him all the time. More so now that he’s gone. Life is funny that way. May his soul rest in paradise. He was very loved & will be very missed.”

She also reflects on Hip-Hop’s recent loss of DMX, saying, “The passing of DMX hit me like a ton of bricks. Losing him felt like losing someone I grew up with. I adored him. Blessings to his family.”

Elsewhere in the open letter, the Queen artist discusses what life has been like for her as a new mother. In addition to constantly binging Netflix offers like The Crown and Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, she has been spending a bulk of her time with her son, who she is known to affectionately refer to as “Papa Bear.”

“I’ve also been completely overwhelmed with joy & fulfillment in the world of Papa Bear,” she writes. “Each day creates a new & fascinating, magical memory that I hide far away into a little cute compartment of my heart; vowing never to forget any of it.”

She continued, “He’s so smart, funny, sweet, competitive… it’s kind of crazy how they have a full personality so early on. Yesterday I made him say mama. Even got it on video. Just… Wow.”
