Nicki Minaj has gone on a social media sabbatical while working on her long-awaited fourth album.
The Young Money rapper has ditched distractions like Instagram and Twitter since Dec. 30, and insiders say that it’s all meant to augment her creative juices while crafting the long-awaited follow-up to 2014’s The Pinkprint.
Lately, Minaj has been hitting the studio with rappers and producers like Lil Wayne, Mack Maine, and others from Young Money. She has reportedly vowed to leave social media until the album is finalized.
Nicki’s social media shutdown led to speculation about her whereabouts. Wendy Williams even launched a fake “Missing” campaign on her program. Contrary to rumors, Minaj sources say that she’s “happy, healthy, single, and not pregnant,” according to TMZ.
“I just want to go in the studio and create like I used to, before there were any expectations,” she said. “When I was just having fun, working on my mixtapes, going in and creating… writing my little life.” She added: “That’s why I’m not rushing the album, because it means so much to me. I have to release a classic at this point.”
