Nicki Minaj has confirmed that she's walking away from the music industry.

“I’ve decided to retire & have my family. I know you guys are happy now. To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me, in the box- cuz ain’t nobody checkin me. Love you for LIFE,” Nicki tweeted out this week.

That retirement tweet has been deleted. Minaj later apologized for not taking her fans' feelings into account when initially breaking the news.

"I’m still right here," the Young Money rapper replied to one fan on Twitter. "Still madly in love with you guys & you know that. In hindsight, this should’ve been a Queen Radio discussion & it will be. I promise u guys will be happy. No guests, just us talking about everything. The tweet was abrupt & insensitive, I apologize babe."

So what do you think is she ready to retire?
