Nicki Minaj to Promote New Pepsi Beverage

by at . Comments

Nicki Minaj was ranked number-15 on Forbes' Hip-Hop Cash Kings chart for 2011, pulling in $6.5 million and establishing herself as one of rap's top earners.

But we have a feeling that figure will go up considerably in 2012.

The artist has signed on to become the new Pepsi spokesperson for an upcoming beverage that company will roll out in the near future, according to Derek Jackson, the man who brokered the deal.

“You’ll see the commercial probably in the next two months,” Jackson told Forbes this week. “That’ll be a segue into a new beverage Pepsi has, called ‘Pop,’ and she’ll be the face of the brand... it’s going to be explosive.”

The agreement is said to pay Minaj somewhere in the seven figure range.
