Nicki Minaj Lands Role in ‘Barbershop 3’

Rapper Nicki Minaj releases the video and controversial artwork for her new single, "Looking Ass "N*gga."

Rapper Nicki Minaj is set to co-star in New Line/MGM’s Barbershop 3 alongside Ice Cube and Cedric the Entertainer, according to Variety.

The “Truffle Butter” artist will play Draya, the sassy new hairdresser of the barbershop. She made her first onscreen appearance last year in The Other Woman, when she played the assistant to Cameron Diaz’s character.

The first two installments of the series grossed a combined $140 million worldwide. Regina Hall, Eve and Common are also starring in Barbershop 3.
