Nicki Minaj is known for her various alter-egos, and now she’s about to take one of her many personalities to the big screen. The Pink Friday rapper will lend her voice to the animated 3D flick Ice Age: Continental Drift.
According to Variety, Minaj has been added to an all-star cast that includes her fellow Young Money rapper Drake, Jennifer Lopez, Queen Latifah, Aziz Ansari, Wanda Sykes, and Keke Palmer, among others.
But that’s not the only voice-over gig Nicki has booked. In addition to her movie role, she will guest on Fox’s animated TV series “The Cleveland Show” this fall.
“We have a rap Illuminati episode that’s going to be happening,” revealed Mike Henry, who voices Cleveland on the show. “We have an episode where Kanye and will.i.am, playing himself, and Nicki Minaj, playing herself, and Bruno Mars, playing himself, and ?uestlove—they’re all part of the rap Illuminati, the secret group that controls pop culture.”
Executive producer Rich Appel added, “Cleveland inadvertently breaks into it and then it’s how he will either bring them down or they’ll bring him down. We have a couple of original songs with Kanye and will and Bruno, I mean, all of them, it was great.”
The fourth installment in the Ice Age series is slated for release on July 13, 2012, while “The Cleveland Show” returns this fall.
