As she continues to do promo for the new single and her forthcoming album, Nicki Minaj decided to take to Instagram the trailer for her long-awaited documentary. Scheduled to be released via BRON Studios, the “We Go Up” rapper calls the documentary “NOTHING you’ve seen before & I need it to be handled with care.”
Watch the official trailer below.
A New Verzuz Documentary In The Works
The battles started at the height of the pandemic in 2020 between Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. While in-person social gatherings plausibly seemed like death wishes, the Instagram livestreams became everyone’s solution to the limitations of lockdown. Soon enough, artists like Brandy, RZA, Babyface and more took to the virtual stage to throw their greatest hits at their opponents. From one livestream came full-throttle productions with cheat sheets on music platforms like Apple Music.
As covid and civil injustices rattled the nation, the Verzuz series provided opportunities for community restoration through music. According to Deadline, Waithe has explained that “Verzuz is more than two artists going song-for-song. It’s the joyful celebration of legacy that we all needed.” Verzuz brought millions of people together and on that premise, it arguably warrants documentation.
However a number of people have voiced their objections against the documentary. After all, Verzuz was supposed to be an organic solution to the cabin fever that many people experienced during lockdown. Now, setups have become filled with advertisements and viewers almost had to set up a Triller subscription plan to watch future scrimmages. With a documentary underway, Verzuz’s magic is consequently gone for many viewers, rightfully so.
The documentary will be available on Prime Video. Release date is currently unknown.
Meek Mill Partners with Amazon for ‘Free Meek’ Documentary (Executive Prod. By Jay-Z)
Meek Mill has partnered with Amazon Prime for the release of his new documentary, Free Meek.
Executive produced by JAY-Z, the Free Meek documentary follows the Philadelphia rapper’s fight for justice following his incarceration back in November 2017 for violation of probation. The case sparked numerous movements of criminal justice reform.
Since the filming of the documentary, Meek Mill has been taken off of probation after ten years and has also been granted a new trial after it was discovered that there was police corruption in his case, stemming back from 2008.
Judge Genece Brinkley’s parole violation findings that sent back to prison for five months in 2017 has also been overturned and the Dreamchaser will be granted a new trial and an impartial judge.
The news follows the announcement of Meek Mill launching his Dream Chasers record label under the Roc Nation imprint.
You can watch the full Free Meek documentary on Amazon Prime.
