Hip Hop DX writes:
More than ten years after the franchise’s most recent installment, which includes the bust of a sequel/spin-off Beauty Shop released in 2005, another Barbershop movie is in the works and Nicki Minaj has been confirmed as an actor for the new follow-up.
Former Barbershop cast-members Ice Cube, Eve, and Cedric The Entertainer are all set to make their own return in the upcoming sequel.
Minaj will play the part of Draya, a hairdresser at the combined beauty and barbershop that serves as the focal point of the movie, as her first role since her acting debut in The Other Woman last year.
Variety was the first to break the news.
