AceShowbiz - Ever since Nicki Minaj announced that she would be retiring, people have begged her to reconsider her decision and stopped her from retiring. Among those who weren't down with the idea was 50 Cent, who unsurprisingly voiced his opinion in an Instagram post over the weekend.
In the since-deleted post, the "Candy" hitmaker attached a photo of the self-proclaimed black Barbie and her beau Kenneth Petty together as he expressed his disappointment. Calling both Nicki and the Queens native "crazy," 50 wrote in the caption, "But you know you gotta love it SOUTH SIDE." He then admitted he's not ready to see the female emcee hanging up the mic as saying, "I don't want @nickiminaj to retire just take a break."
Nicki broke the internet earlier this week after she announced that she would be retiring from her rap career to focus on having her "family." She said in her Twitter post, "I know you guys are happy now. To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me, X in the box cuz ain't nobody checkin me. Love you for LIFE."
This, obviously, shocked a lot of her devotees considering that she had been teasing her new album for a while and had even just released a collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion, "Hot Girl Summer".
Following a series of heartbreaking messages from fans demanding her to address her retirement further, Nicki assured them in a separate tweet, "I'm still right here. Still madly in love with you guys & you know that." The "Anaconda" hitmaker also promised to address it on her "Queen Radio" show, adding, "In hindsight, this should've been a Queen Radio discussion & it will be. I promise u guys will be happy. No guests, just us talking about everything. The tweet was abrupt & insensitive, I apologize, babe."
