Nicki Minaj announced the cast and details on her new sitcom last night through Instagram. The rapper’s new show will be called NickiĀ and focuses on “Minaj in her early years before she became a Grammy Award-nominated, multiplatinum superstar.”

Whoopi Goldberg is set to guest star in the sitcom and Ariana Neal will play the title role. Nicki Minaj was very happy with the choice of Neal saying, “I literally cried watching her taped audition. I demanded to meet her!” The rapper will also narrate the show herself in a similar style Chris Rock did with Everybody Hates Chris according to NME.
