You guys, it’s happening. (At least, we hope it is.) Blac Chyna — like so many reality stars before her — is reportedly planning to parlay her television fame into a music career. According to TMZ, the Rob & Chyna alum, 29, wants to be the next Nicki Minaj.And, TBH, we can 👏 not 👏 wait 👏.
The site reports that Chyna has met with several record labels (including Capitol Records) who are very interested in signing the former stripper. Sources told TMZ that the mom-of-two — who shares son King Cairo, 4, with ex-fiancé No. 1 Tyga, and daughter Dream, 8 months, with ex-fiancé No. 2 Rob Kardashian — has already spent time in the studio working on her sound.
Chyna apparently wants to make rap music just like her idol Nicki, but she’s also reportedly thinking about recording “poetry music” and even wants to sing a little bit. We hope Chy’s plan to steal Her Minajesty’s crown doesn’t ruin her relationship with the 34-year-old hip-hop superstar.
The two have been close ever since November 2010, when Nicki chose Chyna to play her stunt double in Kanye West’s “Monster” video. In the following years, the women have frequently hung out and Nicki has name-dropped Chyna in several of her songs.
And in May, Nicki posted a sweet birthday tribute to Chyna after the video vixen uploaded a Snapchat clip of her brand new red Ferrari (a birthday gift from an unknown sender) with the female MC’s "No Frauds" playing in the background. "Heyo Chyna, don't make me have to pull out the HOT PINK Lamborghini on dat ass," Nicki wrote at the time. "You wanna race when I get to LA or naw?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY GIRL!”
