“Nick” Toon.

Nicki Minaj is a force. As the controversy surrounding the cover art for her upcoming single, “Anaconda”, subsides and we await our first impressions of the track — Nicki has been busy lending her vocal talents for ventures outside of the music biz.

The 31-year-old Queens rapper will voice a giant, pink (of course) creature, “Sugilite” on Cartoon Network’s popular animated series Steven Universe. Sugilite is a monstrous amalgamation of two of the show’s characters Amethyst and Garnet (who’s voiced by British crooner, Estelle) who will assist protagonist, Steven Universe on his adventure — if they can find a way to control the “unstable” entity.

This isn’t Nicki’s first time receiving an animated treatment as she’s voiced characters for both Seth MacFarlane‘s Family Guy spinoff, The Cleveland Show, and the animated film, Ice Age: Continental Drift. 

Nicki Minaj will make her cameo on Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe on August 21st at 6:30 p.m. EST. Enjoy a teaser trailer from the episode “Coach Steven” above.
