Exclusive: Nicki Minaj Lead Role In “Charge It To The Game”?

- By Bossip Staff

Onika Maraj‘s career has been a whirlwind and next on her list of accomplishments is acting:

The evolution of Nicki Minaj continues as she exploits her talents as a singer and explores her passion as a writer. Nicki is considering several acting roles which includes playing the lead character of Erica Payne in the film adaptation of the six time Essence’s bestselling novel “Charge it to the Game” by Michele A. Fletcher.

While Fletcher does have a past history with Lil Kim growing up in Brooklyn and running with Junior Mafia, she feels either lady could bring a new kind of intensity to the street-lit character very much like Denzel Washington in Training Day. Other actresses on Fletcher’s wish list include Eve, Keri Hilson, Tasha Smith and Evelyn Lozada.

Hmmm, we’re not sure about Evelyn Lozada and Keri Hilson’s acting skills, but Nicki Minaj would be a good look.

      You right! Kill it dead with Nicki no acting a@##$@. You Nicki zombies kill me…dummies

    • WTF!

      If this is a story based off some NY hood sh*t then Tasha Smith should be the 1st pick, she really lived that lifestyle. Her voice, her look fits that type of role & she’s a good actress.

    lmao @ the list of ppl she wants to play the role…that sh1t has str8 to DVD written all over it, but u gotta start somewhere i guess


    What is an Essence bestseller?

    • Mrs. Rance

      I tried to look it up and the best explanation I can come up with is that its a list of books by black authors that Essense recommends we read. Why they call it a bestsellers list is beyond me because it has nothing to do with that as far as I know.

    • Mrs. Rance

      I found it and the answer was worse than I thought. Nicki is an A-Lister. She should have nothing to do with this mess.

  • Totally Predictable

    i dont think nikki can pull off a “gangsta role” her image is too cartoon.. honesty, evelyn is way more gangsta then nikki- but lil kim will kill it!

  • HoustonGirl

    Nicki can’t act,get lil kim to do it.

  • jay

    u are wrong nicki has been getting called to do alot of roles and because she famous just like other celebritys they will pretty much just give her the part to be real and nicki said she wasnt going to start acting till 2012

  • ThickLikeCornbread

    This sounds like a low budget hood film. Keri Hilson???!!! Really?! Why not go for actresses like Raven, Keisha Knight Pulliam, Keri Washington, he11, even 1 of the Mowry Twins


    I think Tasha Smith or Lil Kim would be PERFECT for the ROLE!!!!!!!!

  • Latoya

    @ Brooklyn: WOW I didn’t know that! I wonder what was the beef??

  • Courtney

    I love my Nic. With some coaching, she’ll do fine. She has the work ethic down. And to the haters, you don’t have to like her music. But damn, she is a young black woman doing something positive with her life. I think that deserves some credit.

  • Its Me

    Tasha Smith

  • jacqueline

    Keri hilson is the only one that would play the best in this situation go keri I got u sista

  • SMH

    lol @ “the evolution of Nicki Minaj continues…”

    I just hope her acting skills are better than her “lap dancing” skills…

  • Laloz x

    This could either propel her further or she could be the laughing stock amongst her peers. Good luck to her

  • TaTa

    Her singing isn’t convincing

  • Qrlygirl

    I know this is an entertainment forum… But at the same time, it’s unfortunate that BLACK ppl so easily trash each other…. Whether an author…who’s actually accomplishing getting her novel to film…. Or another sistavtrying to get to the next level. It’s no wonder why black businesses suffer trying to make it to it’s financial best. Support one another….damn be constructive with your opinions!

    • TennesseeTitan

      Most people work hard for their money. why should we support bullsht? stop tryin to cram this crap down our throats!

  • Tired of Bossip

    is this based of a hood book?

  • Andrews

    Am truly in love with Nicky..

    • jasmine

      So am I. If people really got to know Nicki they would fall in love with her like we did.

      I hope Nicki gets the role in Michelle Fletcher film , Charge it to the Game. She killed the Bridezilla skit on Saturday night live.
