On August 1, 2018, the Queen herself Nicki Minaj made her debut guest appearance on Vh1’s hit reality show, Black Ink Chicago.
This season 4 episode of Black Ink Chicago is appropriately titled “Barbie Tingz” after Nicki’s April 12, 2018 single. Nicki has two appearances on the show and she looks absolutely flawless. In the first appearance we see Ryan bringing a beautiful bouquet of pink roses to give to Nicki Minaj as a surprise! Ryan and Phor first meet Nicki on the set of the Big Bank video shoot in her trailer where they get more acquainted.
The last scene of the episode (Barbz might remember this as a sneak peak on Nicki’s June 12, 2018 live video), Ryan and Phor meet Nicki at her studio so Ryan can work on the tattoo that Nicki asked him to put on her wrist.
During the first scene, Nicki gives Ryan some great advice on working towards and achieving his dreams, and by the last scene you can tell the opportunity, along with her advice, has given him a more optimistic view on his new business endeavors.
Both scenes give a great look into the real Nicki Minaj and what she stands for, not only for herself, but for her fans. She has always encouraged others to strive to be the best they can be. Something she has always required of her fans is to do their best, chase their dreams and never give up!
