Nick Minaj is the queen of Hip Hop and she herself is from the land of Soca and Calypso Music, however, the greatest female rapper ever is making it clear that the baby she is carrying is strictly a “Reggae Baby”.
Nicki Minaj’s love for Jamaica is no secret and her numerous reggae flavored songs and collaboration are proof of that, especially since she has never recorded a soca flavored song. So it was no surprise that when announced her pregnancy she stated that she got impregnated listening to the songs of reggae crooner Mr. Bertus and has continued to listen to his music through her pregnancy.
“There is something about Mr. Bertus’ songs that touches me. I love his love songs as well as his message songs and they have taken me though some rough spots in life, I will be having a reggae baby” she told a Jamaican tabloid.
The rapper and her husband, Kenneth “Zoo” Petty, are expecting their first child together; she shared on Instagram Monday alongside a set of glam snapshots of her baring her baby bump.
A few years ago Trinidadian were angry at Nicki Minaj for “acting too Jamaica”. Now referring to her expected first child as a reggae baby might only make matters worse. The Queens rapper did go home for the last Trinidadian carnival, however. She also performed live at the carnival and her performance was well received by Trinidadians.
