Nicki fans, this is a must-see. A 60-minute doc highlighting Minaj in her most unfiltered behind the scenes moments, including trips to Queens and her native Trinidad. The full premise and bonus MTV highlights below.
Across its 60-minute runtime, “Nicki Minaj: My Time AGAIN” showcases the superstar at her most raw and uninhibited as she prepares to release her most introspective album to date, “The Pinkprint.” “My Time Again” follows Nicki through the streets of her native Southside Jamaica, Queens, as she recounts memories of growing up in a one-room basement apartment with her family and a traumatic, painful episode in which her father burned down the family home. The documentary picks up with Nicki in the recording studio, capturing her creative genius, her battle to stay at the top of the rap game, and her uncensored perspectives on her contemporaries and the state of hip hop in America. “My Time AGAIN” also provides an unfiltered look at the highs, lows, and crazy in-betweens of superstardom – from the sheer joy of completing the “The Pinkprint,” to the end of an 11-year romantic relationship, to her firsthand account of the now infamous snakebite and wardrobe malfunctions episodes surrounding the “2014 MTV Video Music Awards,” to her cherished time with her beloved family and friends. Nicki in her own words from “My Time AGAIN”: “What is this all for if this for if I am not with the people that I care about the most?” Part one of MTV’s Nicki Minaj trilogy, “Nicki Minaj: My Time Now” aired in 2010 and followed Nicki’s meteoric rise to stardom – with stops in Queens and her native Trinidad – as she prepared to release her debut album, “Pink Friday.”
