“I never wanted to be mainstream. Mainstream came to me.”

“A story so raw, it can only be told by a legend this real.”

The series was directed by Michael John Warren, who has previously worked with Nicki Minaj on documentary specials. Detailing the series, Warren said in a statement:

“I love that this series not only provides an all-access glimpse at one of the most iconic musicians of our generation; it also profiles the brave woman behind the artist, Onika. I believe all of us can learn a great deal from her remarkable professional and personal life. It’s an honor to be entrusted with this dynamic story.”
