Nicki Minaj Releases Trailer for Her Video Game ‘The Empire’
Nicki Minaj is getting ready to drop her new mobile video game The Empire. On Monday (Aug. 1), the Queens rapper dropped the game's trailer.
The trailer suggests that users will be able to craft their own song lyrics, perform at concert venues, customize one's own house or apartment, go to clubs and parties and choose one's own wardrobe. There is currently no set release date for the video game, but if the trailer is any indication, it should be coming soon.
In other Nicki Minaj-related news, the Pinkprint rapper recently linked up with DJ Khaled, Future, Rick Ross, August Alsina, Chris Brown and Jeremih for a new banger called "Do You Mind." The track appeared on Khaled's Major Key album.
Nicki also recently picked up her seventh (!) Best Female Hip-Hop Artist award at the 2016 BET Awards in late June. She beat out other artists including Lil Kim, Dej Loaf, Missy Elliott and Remy Ma for the win. Minaj was first nominated for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist in 2010, going up against the likes of Lil Kim, Ester Dean, Trina and Rasheeda.
