Nicki Minaj Lets You Into Her Private Life On 'All Things Go': Here's What We Learned

Time to get personal.

When the iTunes pre-order for Nicki Minaj's The Pinkprint became available on Wednesday (December 3), the album's opener, "All Things Go," did, too.

It's the fifth song we've heard from the rapper's upcoming third solo album, and by far the most personal to date. Nicki touches on family issues, relationships and even says she almost had a child when she was a teenager (she doesn't specify what happened, or whether or not she had an abortion).

We're always listening closely to Nick's rhymes, but we had to take some extra time out with this one to take a look at how the notoriously private MC opened up. Here's what we learned.

She Hopes To Have A Daughter In Preschool By 2021

"Life is a movie, but there will never be a sequel/ And I'm good with that, as long as I'm peaceful/ As long as 7 years from now, I'm taking my daughter to preschool."

She Was Proposed To A Decade Ago -- And Said Yes

"Ten years ago, that's when you proposed/ I look down, 'Yes, I suppose.'"

Before Her Cousin Was Killed, He Wanted To Stay With Her

"I lost my little cousin to a senseless act of violence/ His sister said he wanted to stay with me, but I didn't invite him/ Why didn't he ask, or am I just buggin'?"

And She Seems To Take Some Of The Blame For What Happened

"Family ties broken before me, n---as tryna kill him, he ain't even call me/ And that's the reflection of me, yes I get it, I get it, it was all me."

She's Not As Close With Her Mother As She Once Was

"I love my mother more than life itself, and that's a fact/ I'd give it all, somehow if I could, just rekindle that."

She Almost Had A Child 16 Years Ago -- And Sees That In Her 16-Year-Old Brother

"I want 'Caiah to go to college, just to say 'We did it!'/ My child with Aaron, would've been sixteen, any minute/ So in some ways I feel like 'Caiah is the both of them/ It's like he's 'Caiah's little angel, looking over him."

She Is Still Close With Her Older Brother

"And I know Jelani will always love me, and I'll always love him/ And I'm just his little sister not Nicki Minaj when I'm around him."
