Nicki Minaj Opens Up About Her Father’s Struggle With Crack (VIDEO)

Giving a rare glimpse into her days growing up, Nicki Minaj opened up in
an emotional forthcoming MTV News documentary titled “My Time Now”.

Airing on Sunday (November 28) at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV, the “Your Love” singer begins the show by telling, “Everything in Trinidad reminds me of my family that is no longer here.”

Meanwhile, Miss Minaj delves into her first time arriving in the States –
confessing that it fell much short of what she’d pictured while growing
up in the islands.

“I thought it was gonna be like a castle. Like white picket fence,
like a fairy tale. I got off the plane and it was cold. I remember the
smell. I could always remember the smell when I got out of the airport
of the snow, and I had never seen snow,”
she tells. “I remember
the house. I remember that the furniture wasn’t put down. It was, like,
piled up on each other ,and I didn’t understand why, ’cause I thought it
was gonna look like a big castle.”

Nicki also spoke of troubles to hit her household in the U.S., which
included parental fighting and a drug addiction which overtook her
father.

The soon-to-be 26-year-old revealed, “I started hearing a lot of
arguing, and I didn’t know why. I was always very nervous, very afraid.
So I knew that wasn’t normal. My father would yell and curse a lot.”

Of her dad’s drug woes, Minaj explains, “It was right in the crack
era. We didn’t know, but he fell victim to crack shortly after he moved
to America. When you’re on crack, you can’t keep a job. And when you
can’t keep a job, you don’t have money. And when you don’t have money,
you steal. And you steal from your family.”
