In what might be the biggest no-brainer news of the week, one of hip-hop’s most animated rappers, Nicki Minaj, will be lending her voice to the upcoming Ice Age sequel. It will be interesting to hear just which of her many accents and voices the directors decide to use. Barbi Nicki? Running-out-of-breath-and-kind-of-scary Nicki? Roman (aka Nicki’s male alter ego)? Or something new? Joining her in the studio is her Young Money buddy, Drake, whose monotone voice should make him instantly recognizable. What is he going to voice like some kind of emo/sex-crazed wooly mammoth? We’ll see, I guess.
Ice Age: Continental Drift is due out next year.
