Its officially the end of an era. Today, Mrs. Petty (that's really her fiance's last name. I am not, in turn, being petty) herself took to Twitter to announce she'll be retiring from rap in order to start a family. Recently Minaj has teased marriage and while she is engaged to Kenneth "Zoo" Petty (see?!) there has been no word on children. Fans, peers and the like have all shared moments online and wished her farewell but many made mention that retirement is common in the rap world and by no means permanent. For now, we wish Nicki Minaj the best for her and her family and hope one day she'll return to the mic.
