Nicki Minaj liberally gives $50K to Toys for Children: ‘God favor every one of the kids on the planet’

Nicki Minaj is spreading joy this holiday season by supporting less fortunate 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘥ren across the nation.

On Friday night, the 41-year-old rapper presented a $50,000 pink check to the program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve while appearing on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.

‘Thank you to you guys for allowing me to do this on your show. It was something that meant a lot to me,’ the mother-of-one told Cohen, before making the exciting announcement.

She continued: ”I would like to donate $50,000 to Toys for Tots because I love this organization. I love what it stands for. It means the world to me, and God bless all the 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘥ren in the world.’

Three representatives from Toys for Tots stood behind the Bravo star’s bar, and clapped while the news was announced to the live studio audience.

When asked about his reaction, Toys for Tots’ N.Y.C. coordinator Raul Pillco raved that he was ‘incredibly speechless.’

‘It means the absolute world to be able to give back to the New York City community and just for the 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘥ren across the nation,’ Pillco gushed. ‘So, with somebody with such a superstar status like you, it means the absolute world.’

Her donation comes just weeks after she dropped her fifth studio album, Pink Friday 2, on her 41st 𝐛𝐢𝐫𝐭𝐡day.

Pink Friday 2 is the sequel to Nicki’s debut album Pink Friday, which came out in 2010, and is the rapper’s first album in five years.

The album has 22 tracks and features artists such as Drake, Lil Wayne, and Future. One of its songs is produced by Finneas, Billie Eilish’s brother.

Fans of the rapper called ‘Barbz’, short for Barbie, because Nicki often refers to herself as one, flooded Twitter with praise for the album.

'Thank you to you guys for allowing me to do this on your show. It was something that meant a lot to me,' the mother-of-one told Cohen while presenting a large pink check to the program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve

‘Just finished #PinkFriday2 and Nicki ate every SONG. My house is now in shambles… Barb for life,’ one fan wrote.

Another said: ‘SHE’S BAAAAAACK!!!!! The queen of rap is back and it’s no skips over here I’m afraid #PinkFriday2.’

‘Pink friday 2 is a VIBE, like that was an enjoyable experience for me personally & this is just on first listen. ICONIC #PinkFriday2.’

‘Nicki released an album that sounds nothing like what the female rappers are releasing these days, I love that for my sister. #PinkFriday2.’

‘Number 1 on Apple Music albums??? Good morning #PinkFriday2,’ wrote another, providing a photo of the top four albums on the app.

‘Wow just finished listening to PF2 in full & it definitely has the essence of Pink Friday. Almost like a tribute to the album that started it all.’ Wrote a Barb.

He continued: ‘At the same time, her growth as a writer & lyricist are on full display. She really delivered. I’m kinda gagged. #PinkFriday2.’

A final fan shared: ‘Just finished #PinkFriday2 and it’s a masterpiece. 10/10. No skips, all hits and vibes. My ears have been blessed.’

Pink Friday 2 was first teased back in June of 2020 when Nicki tweeted, and quickly deleted: ‘PF2’. It was initially scheduled for a 20 October 2023 release, but this was pushed back to 17 November, then finally 8 December.

The album’s lead single, Super Freaky Girl, was released in August and went straight to number one, the first time a solo female rap song had done this since Lauren Hill’s Doo Wop in (That Thing) in 1998.

Pink Friday 2 follows 2012’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, 2014’s The Pinkprint, and 2018’s Queen, as well as three mixtapes.

In November, Nicki released Pink Friday 2, her ninth fragrance, which was supposed to coincide with the album’s released.
