Say it isn’t so.

On Thursday afternoon (Sept. 5), Nicki Minaj shocked the world by announcing that she is retiring from the rap game and planning to start a family.

"I’ve decided to retire & have my family," tweeted Nicki, who toured Europe tour earlier this year. "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."

Upon hearing Nicki’s announcement, fans jumped on social media to offer either their well-wishes or skepticism over this news.

"Y’all know damn well nicki is not retiring, she just throwing a fit cuz she feels unappreciated," tweeted one fan. Another person wrote in all caps, "NOOOO NICKI YOU CANT DO THIS OMG I JUST CAME HERE TO THIS IM LITERALLY CRYING," along with several crying emojis.

Other fans took a moment to reflect on Nicki's success and push people to enjoy her music. "Guys if this Nicki Minaj retirement thing is forreal I suggest we stream every Nicki Minaj song there is out there to pay homage to the Queen," wrote another fan. "Let’s get her songs topping the charts again one last time pls pls 😭 #NickiMinaj."
