Nicki Minaj First Look At Her Documentary

On Thursday, the Grammy-nominated rapper released the first trailer for her highly-anticipated project, Nicki. Sharing the two-minute clip on Twitter, Minaj wrote, Coming SOON!!!! The #NickiDocumentary you didn't know you needed. I love you so much.

The trailer begins with a well-known video of a young Minaj, 39, rapping before she's heard saying in a voiceover, you don't get a manual on how to be a famous rapper.

Nicki Snapping Footage

The "Starships" rapper is then seen on camera and adds you learn it as you go, as footage of her snapping photos with fans, performing at arenas, and getting off of a private jet is shown.

The clip continues with the peak moments of Minaj's career as she shares a message about her younger self. She thinks the woman back then wasn't afraid to fail. Female rappers weren't charting at the time.

She is fighting for the girls who never feel like they could win, she adds, she hit single "Chun Li" playing in the background.

The trailer then shows a standout moment in the earlier days of Minaj's career, when Taylor Swift praised the rapper on Twitter.

I was driving back and listening to Super Bass by @nickiminaj repeatedly. I'm obsessed with this song, Swift, on Jan. 8, 2011.

Minaj Clarifies

After the tweet is shown, Minaj clarifies; that she never wanted to be mainstream. She takes the art form of rap severe. Mainstream came to me.

Speaking about the reality of being a female rapper, she adds that she thinks that we don't get the respect that men do. You constantly feel like you're doing something wrong, so you stop doing period. This industry is not a loving, supportive place. It pretends sometimes, but it's just not.

Highlights of her career continue to be featured in the trailer as Minaj says she could medicate herself and tell herself it's okay. But when the high comes down, when you are just focused on the business, you can lose yourself. It's time for me to grow up and start loving myself.

Footage Of Happy Moments With Her Husband

Footage of Minaj's happy moments with her husband, Kenneth Petty, are included in the montage, along with a clip of the star appearing to write lyrics on a notepad.

She became the strongest I've ever been in my life. And then I just started rapping. She still can remember the great feeling and the moment when she wanted the night to last forever. She has to make music to stay sane, and she confesses as her 2010 single "Moment 4 Life is heard.

The trailer dubs the documentary as a story so raw that it can only be told by a legend that's real.

She took time to perfect this very intimate, delicate, electrifying, inspiring body of work. As she decides on a home for this project, she can't help but reflect on what I include in this doc, Minaj wrote on Instagram.

Some things are so personal that it's scary. It is like NOTHING you've seen before & she needs it to be handled with care. I love you so much. Thank you for the continued support.

The six-part documentary has not yet been given a release date, though the "Rumors" rapper wrote that the project is Coming out SOONER.
