“When u & bae rent out the entire theatre to watch #StraightOutttaCompton with the team,” Minaj wrote in the post’s caption field.
Minaj also hinted at a “secret” project with former N.W.A member Ice Cube. The two have recently worked together on the forthcoming Barbershop 3 film, which is set to be released in 2016.
“so proud of Ice Cube,” Minaj adds. “Can’t wait to reveal our lil secret.”
