Nicki Minaj working on two books

    Nicki Minaj is expanding her already exploding empire with not one book, but two.  

    The rapper turned entrepreneur recently tweeted that she is penning two projects. No stranger to the power of products, Minaj already has her own O.P.I. nail polish line, a shade of lipstick with M.A.C. and plans for a clothing line.


”I never thought about music as just being the end-all, be-all. I always looked at it like a business, something that I could create an empire out of. So that’s why I’m only about to put out my second album and I’m already thinking about this,” Nicki told Allure magazine.

    This ambitious rapper with the pink microphone has been taking cues from mogul Jay-Z.

    His empire includes; countless ventures, a clothing line, nightclubs and even a basketball team. Not to mention, he’s an author, too.

    ”I had a little conversation with Jay-Z at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show. He said, ‘Congratulations on all your success.’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m coming for you. I’m coming for your spot, Mr. Mogul.’”

    Nicki is the first female rapper to make the Forbes Magazine’s Hip-Hop Cash Kings list at No. 15 with $6.5 million earnings between 2010 and 2011. She has an estimated net worth of $12 million and growing.


In addition to penning books, verses and introducing fashion and makeup trends, this real-life Barbie is back in the studio recording her sophomore album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded with an anticipated release date of April 3.
