Nicki Minaj recalls 2003 arrest with woman ‘leaking blood’
Nicki Minaj shared her mugshot on social media from her arrest in 2003 while reflecting on how she’s grown from the incident.
The Starships rapper posted a photo of her mugshot taken 18 years ago to Twitter on Monday along with a message detailing the incident.
It took place before Nicki, 38, found fame as a rapper and she hadn’t properly spoken about the arrest until now.
In the now-deleted post, she wrote as reported by HipHop DX and Hot New Hip Hop: ‘It took me years to be able to look at things like this. Criminal possession with the intent to use. I did use it tho. This is so inspiring to look back. The girl was leaking blood and spent days in the hospital [sic].’
Nicki continued: ‘The word on the street was that I was gonna b deported. I was so scared. LOL. I was “on the run”. I rlly thought I was in a ghetto movie.
‘I hid my car and went to stay with my Aunt in Brooklyn chile. Bwahahahaaaa. #Growth [sic].’
Jay Z once used Nicki’s mugshot on his and Beyonce’s On The Run II tour in 2018, broadcasting the image on stage to thousands of fans. It featured in a montage of other mugshots of rappers such as Snoop Dogg, Diddy and Meek Mill.
Nicki seemed to approve of Jay Z using the photo at the time and shared an image of Jay Z beside the mugshot on-stage, alongside the caption: ‘When Jay asks for your mug shot for his tour backdrop.’
Since releasing her 2009 mixtape Beam Me Up Scotty to streaming services last Friday, Nicki has been in a sharing mood.
In a letter on her website, Nicki revealed that she spent her maternity leave after giving birth to her son in September binge-watching The Crown.
‘My darlings, as I complete this album & documentary, I am also obsessing over The Crown on Netflix,’ she wrote.
The rapper continued: ‘The great Kenya Barris recommended I watch it & I’ve been hooked ever since. It’s safe to say I’ve watched every single episode of every single season at least 5 times each. Lol. Yikes. I know.’
‘I can’t get enough of Claire Foy’s perfect face. I want to eat it. It just does the right thing in every single scene. Lmao. I also can’t believe how much I enjoy Gillian Anderson’s portrayal of Margaret Thatcher. Seeing as tho I’m such a Meryl StreepINISTA.’
Nicki then addressed the recent death of her father, Robert Maraj, who was killed in a suspected hit and run in February.
