Find Out Why Nicki Minaj Was Arrested Two Decades Ago.

Find Out Why Nicki Minaj Was Arrested Two Decades Ago.

Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty (born December 8, 1982), known mononymously as Nicki Minaj is a Trinidadian-born professional rapper, singer, songwriter, and businesswoman.

The 39-year-old is best known for her versatility as an artist, her animated flow and lyricism in her rapping, and her usage of alter egos and accents.

With over 100 million records sold worldwide, Nicki Minaj is unquestionably the best-selling female rapper of all time. Throughout her musical career, she has managed to obtain 12 BET awards, 8 American music awards, and other major accolades. She has also debuted two songs atop the US Billboard Hot 100.

Aside from music, Minaj is known for her involvement in entrepreneurial ventures, and the fashion industry. Her unmatched success in both music and business is somewhat inspiring given that she spent some time behind bars 18 years ago.

According to reports, the self-proclaimed 'Queen of Rap' was arrested back in 2003 and charged with criminal possession of a gun with intent to use.

In May 2018 she, however, revealed that she shot a fellow teenage girl who spent days in hospital recovering through a now-deleted Instagram post. The New-York bred rapper also mentioned that she fled to her aunt's residence in South America after learning that she was about to be deported.
