Young Money's Nicki Minaj continues to put in work as a major entrepreneur by celebrating the three-year anniversary of her Pink Friday debut album with a special Beats By Dre release.
According to reports, Nicki now has some pricey headphones to commemorate her first LP dropping in November 2010.
Nicki continues to hustle on the business front. To celebrate the third anniversary of her debut album Pink Friday, Nicki Minaj has launched her own line of Beats By Dre headphones called 'Pink Pros'. This is her third product with Beats By Dre, following Beats Pink Pill wireless speakers and urBeats in-ear buds. The exclusive line of Pros are of course Pink in color and retailing for $399.95. Fans can purchase the headphones on Beats By Dre's official website. (HHNM)
Back in April, Nicki's special Beats By Dre release, the Pill Speaker, hit store shelves.
Dr. Dre revolutionized the headphones industry when he launched Beats by Dr. Dre in 2008 and now the rap impresario is set to do it again with his Beats By Dr. Dre Pill Speaker. Lending a hand (or an ear, as the case were) is Nicki Minaj, who fronts a special Pretty in Pink edition of the portable Bluetooth speaker and ETonline is proud to bring you the exclusive first look at over 2 minutes of behind the scenes footage from her commercial!

Prior to coming out, the self-proclaimed Barbie spoke on the business opportunity in a statement last spring.
"I am so excited about this product. It's something I actually use. It's a little tiny speaker that I can travel with yet the sound is incredibly loud and rich," Nicki Minaj said in a statement. "I knew the Barbz would not only love it, but that they'd want it in pink! So, here ya go barbz!!!! My PINK PILL!" (Statement)
Aside from the Beats By Dre buzz, Nicki is spending time putting together a new solo album.
"I already started, and I'm going home, actually tomorrow to really start. Like, I'm taking two months to just lock in. So I'm really excited, and the people that have been working with now have been people that I haven't worked with before, so it's like they're bringing a new sound to the album that I've never experimented with. ... I've got so much to talk about. In the features, I don't really delve into no deep sh*t. And with the album, thank God, I've experienced so much in the last year-and-a-half that there's so much for me to talk about. I know my fans are gonna be excited about it." (MTV)
