The 32-year-old Beez in the Trap rapper is teaming up with ABC Family and Sex Tape scribe Kate Angelo to re-tell the story of her quirky upbringing, reported Deadline.

“This is one of <g data-gr-id="25">the more unique</g> adventures I’ve ever embarked on,” Minaj said.
“I couldn’t be more proud and excited to team up with an amazing group of people to give the world
something really special.”
ABC Family’s Karey Burke also promised that the hip-hop star’s life story will be both “inspiring and
hilarious” for viewers.
This is not the first time Minaj has dabbled in acting. She has earlier voiced Steffie in Ice Age: Continental Drift and filmed a role for next year’s Barbershop 3.
She also lent her voice to the animated series Steven Universe last year. Meanwhile, Minaj recently wrapped her Pinkprint Tour with a series of North American dates.
