Nicki Minaj is ready to drop her 2nd album in early 2012. The success of her first album ‘Pink Friday’ which was released last year have people wondering if she will be able to match up to her success of her first release.  Cash Money Records, the label that she is signed to, said that she is currently working in the studio and should hear something by the first of the year.  Minaj was working on another project back in October as her alter ego ‘Roman’ her gay male alter ego.  Nothing more has been said about the project and Nicki has not said anything about it.  So as early as the first of the year you could hear the first single off the album.  No exact day yet or name of the album but for sure can be on the look out in the first quarter of 2012.
