Rapper Nicki Minaj announced that she is retiring so she can focus on having a family.

She made the announcement Thursday on Twitter.

“I’ve decided to retire & have my family. I know you guys are happy now. To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me, X in the box- cuz ain’t nobody checkin me. Love you for LIFE,” she said.

Minaj recently told listeners of her “Queen Radio” show that she and boyfriend Kenneth Perry had applied for a marriage license and would be wed in “about 80 days.”

CNN has reached out to Minaj’s representatives for verification of this news as well as clarification as to whether this means the Grammy-nominated musician, who is also a producer and actress, will be retiring from all her endeavors.
