Young Money’s Nicki Minaj is going to give fans their money’s worth when her Queen documentary drops. The hip-hop diva has shared some footage from the upcoming release.

Onika went to Instagram Tuesday (October 2) to share a couple clips from the doc and reveal just how much of a personal struggle she overcame.

“I remember when my mother, um, would let my father be violent with her and she always brings up the story, as a little girl, I would – stand in front of my mother [with my arms protecting her] and I vow, that’s why like, maybe some people would describe me as abrasive or b*tchy or whatever because I vowed from that age no man would ever abuse me, call me out my name, treat me like that. And then all of a sudden, that was my life. Everything that I said, I will never – who was I going to inspire when I had nothing in me to even give? Like, I let one human being make me so low that like, I didn’t even remember who I was. I was scared to get in the studio. I didn’t believe in myself. All of a sudden, in Miami, I started catching a vibe. As soon as I changed locations, and then one day I got the vibe, ‘Okay, it’s time to go to New York.’ You were there, you saw what happened.”
