*Nicki Minaj has announced that she will put out new music under her gay male alter-ego “Roman Zolanski.”
In a blog post that has since been removed, the rapper said she plans to “address the nation” in several new songs as the invented character, who was introduced to fans on “Roman’s Revenge,” the track co-written by Eminem that opens her debut album “Pink Friday.” [Listen below.]
“Roman will be in rare form this time. you know why? cuz he no longer gives a f**k,” Minaj wrote on her blog. “He realized that his core matters the most. everyone else will figure it the f**k out. he can no longer be censored. that’s not lewinsky on a$$. its roman. he has 2 more weeks in boarding school. we’re going to pick him up now. when he lands, he will address the nation in the form of music. he will also announce the date. *salutes the nation* love u always. (sic)”
Nicki also hinted in the post that she will announce new music on the one-year anniversary of “Pink Friday,” which was released on Nov. 19 2010.
Minaj has been working on tracks in Los Angeles with producer Kane Beatz, who recently said of their sessions: “It’s crazy. We got one [track] so far. She just started, so she’s really picking her music and picking the songs. She’s real selective. She’ll pick all the beats before she even starts writing, so right now, we’re just getting music together, and it’s going crazy right now.”
Kane produced “Super Bass,” “Dear Old Nicki” and “I’m the Best” on “Pink Friday.”
