Listen to Nicki Minaj on iHeartRadio

Nicki Minaj's mother, Carol Maraj, is following her daughter's footsteps into the music industry. 

Maraj has released a snippet of her first song, "God's Been Good."  The track takes a new twist on gospel music by seemingly blending the genre with a dance beat. 

So far a clip of the song is only available on Carol's Soundcloud account, but it will soon be released on iTunes. 

This week, Fame Star Records announced that they have signed a deal with Maraj in collaboration with MDM Music Group.
