Nicki Minaj seems to have found just the person to write rhymes for her upcoming ABC Family comedy: Nicki Minaj.

“I’ll b writing raps for #YoungNicki to spit on TV,” Minaj tweeted Tuesday afternoon, a few hours after ABC Family announced the show. She added, “omg I can’t f’ing wait yall.”

Minaj’s show, the title of which has yet to be revealed, will be a half-hour comedy inspired by her family’s immigration from Trinidad in the early 1990s, and her growing up in Queens, New York. Considering the network, it stands to reason that young Nicki’s rhymes will fall toward the family-friendly end of the spectrum.

Minaj also tweeted that she’s launching a nationwide search to find an actress to play her younger self.

The Pinkprint rapper will executive produce and appear in the show. Kate Angelo (Sex Tape, Will & Grace) wrote the pilot, which is set to shoot this winter.
