The animated rapper has joined the latest Ice Age animated franchise. Nicki will play up one of her many outrageous personas in Ice Age: Continental Drift, along side Wanda Sykes, Jeremy Renner, Aziz Ansari, Heather Morris, Drake and Jennifer Lopez!
Nicki told MTV News, “I don’t know how much I can talk about that, but I came about that when my agency sent me out on an audition for some people who wanted to hear me,” she recalled. “They knew I liked animation, they knew I liked to do voices, and so they said they were doing that so I thought, ‘This is amazing.’ “
However, getting a part in the film wasn’t all that easy for the rap Superstar. “The original role that I was up for I didn’t get,” she explained. “So I said, ‘Oh, OK, whatever.’ I was really mad, and the next thing you know, they called me and they said, ‘We wrote in a part just for you ’cause we really want you to be a part of this movie.’ “
Nicki is not at privilege to discuss the role she plays in the animation, but she did say she put a lot of effort into the character. “And I just was screaming and so excited, and I went in and I had a blast. I did it as two different voices,” she said. “We’ll see what happens.”
