Nicki Minaj is heating up the ‘Gram once again. The “Anaconda” rapper set off a frenzy by putting her ample assets on display. Nicki snapped a couple selfies of herself rocking a black bob wig, but it was hard not to stare at her chest. The busty Barb sported a lacy black bra that showed off her breasts, and even let a little nipple slip.

Her fans did not let the wardrobe malfunction go unnoticed. “We’re not looking at the wig,” said one commenter.

Nicki wouldn’t reveal what she was shooting for, only teasing, “#ItsASecret.”
