Is Nicki Minaj really hanging up the mic?

The chart-topping rapper announced Thursday on Twitter that she "decided to retire & have my family." Her announcement comes as a surprise after she recently made a guest appearance on Megan Thee Stallion’s song “Hot Girl Summer.”

In the tweet, the 36-year-old Minaj took a jab at her critics and asked her fans to “keep reppin me, do it til da death of me.”

In July, Minaj announced she was pulling out of a show in Saudi Arabia to show support for women’s rights, gay rights and freedom of expression. The rapper, who was born in Trinidad and Tobago and raised in Queens, also canceled her appearance at the BET Experience Concert earlier this year.

Last year, Minaj released her fourth studio album “Megatron.”

A representative for Minaj didn’t immediately reply to messages.
