Nicki Minaj said her third studio album The Pinkprint would be her most emotional body of work yet.
In her newly released single “All Things Go,” a pretty heavy tune that delves into some of her darkest moments, The Barbz discloses she once had a son, whom she lost 16 years ago. It’s still unclear as to how, exactly.
“I want Caiah to go to college just to say we did it,” she raps about her younger brother Micaiah then adds, “My child with Aaron, would’ve been 16 any minute / So in some ways I feel like Caiah is the both of them / It’s like he’s Cai’s little angel looking over him.”
It’s unclear exactly how she lost the child, but Minaj’s candidness points to a time in her young life when she had to deal with some major adult situations. In fact, she also reveals being engaged in 2006.
She rhymes: “Ten years ago, that’s when you proposed / I look down, yes I suppose.”
