Ariana Neal Will Play Young Nicki Minaj in New Freeform Series!

Big congratulations are in order for young newcomer Ariana Neal – she just landed the role of a young Nicki Minaj in the upcoming ABC Family/Freeform series Nicki!

The series will follow the rapper’s early years and Nicki herself handpicked the young star for the series.

“I literally cried watching her taped audition. I demanded to meet her! Sat in a room with her teaching her how to rap by doing a beat on the table & forcing her to stay on beat! Lol. Then pulled out all the attitude she had in her lil body. Haha! She’s tough! And so sweet & cute. #ArianaNeal #LilNicki Welcome to the family lil lady bug!” Nicki wrote on Instagram.
