Nicki Minaj is set to voice the lead role in upcoming animated series Lady Danger. The Grammy-nominated rapper will also executive produce the show alongside Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson for his G-Unit Film & Television production company.
Lady Danger is based on the Dark Horse comic book series of the same name by Alex de Campi, according to Deadline.
In an Instagram post, 50 Cent shared the news by uploading a screenshot of Deadline’s article and wrote, “What you doing today, we working @nickiminaj South Side you already know what it is…I don’t miss.”
Written by executive producers Carlton Jordan and Crystle Roberson, Lady Danger is reportedly set in the year 2075. According to advance publicity, its story “follows a US government field agent who is betrayed by her team after discovering a dangerous secret. The agent is resurrected as Lady Danger, an agent of the Bureau of Organized Terrorism Intervention (B.O.O.T.I), who must keep her true identity hidden while stopping villains from destroying the world.” The series, which will be animated by Starburns Industries, is set to debut on Amazon Freevee.
Minaj has considerable experience in a range of television work. The rapper has previously voiced characters in Ice Age: Continental Drift and The Angry Birds Movie 2 and appeared on-screen in The Other Woman and Barbershop: The Next Cut.
Despite this activity, Minaj has been keeping busy with her musical endeavors. She recently released a new song, “Red Ruby Da Sleeze,” for which she later delivered an island-themed video filmed in Hawaii. She also recently performed a triumphant set at Rolling Loud in Los Angeles alongside Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz. Additionally, she has been hinting at the possibility of signing Ice Spice to her label through her Twitter activity. While juggling all of these projects, the rapper still found time to take on a new acting opportunity.
