On Thursday night, after releasing her "Beam Me Up Scotty" mixtape to streaming, the rapper posted a note to her fans on her website. After filling them in on what she's been watching lately -- heaping praised on "The Crown" and "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom" -- she addressed her loss.
"Tho I can't really bring myself to discuss the passing of my father as yet; I can say it has been the most devastating loss of my life," she wrote. "I find myself wanting to call him all the time. More so now that he's gone."
In her post, Minaj also opened up about motherhood, after giving birth to son in September 2020. While she has not revealed his name, she refers to him as "Papa Bear" on social media.
"I've also been completely overwhelmed with joy & fulfillment in the world of Papa Bear. Each day creates a new & fascinating, magical memory that I hide far away into a little cute compartment of my heart; vowing never to forget any of it," she wrote.
"He's just a cute liddo marshmallow. I can't take it. His favorite movie is Madagascar (Escape 2 Africa) won't stop watching it. LOL," she continued. "He's so smart, funny, sweet, competitive... it's kind of crazy how they have a full personality so early on."
"Yesterday I made him say mama. Even got it on video," she added. "Just ... Wow."
