Nicki Minaj is set to release material as her gay male alter-ego ‘Roman Zolanski’.
The rapper has revealed she plans to “address the nation” in several new songs as the invented character, who she introduced to fans on ‘Roman’s Revenge’, the opening track of her debut album ‘Pink Friday’ which was co-written by Eminem.
In a blog post, she wrote: “Roman will be in rare form this time. you know why? cuz he no longer gives a f**k. he realized that his core matters the most. everyone else will figure it the fuck 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 hints in the post that she will announce new music on the one-year anniversary of ‘Pink Friday’ which was released on November 19 2010.
The official blog post has since been removed.
The ‘Super Bass’ hitmaker has been busy working with producer Kane Beatz in a Los Angeles studio and Kane has revealed everything is going “crazy”.
He recently said: “It’s crazy. We got one [track] so far. She’s in Los Angeles going crazy. 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’.
