Nicki Minaj Added To 'Barbershop 3' Cast

(Radio.com) A lot of Barbz will taking a trip to the Barbershop this summer. Barbershop 3, that is. Variety reports that Nicki Minaj will join the cast of the long-gestating threequel when it hits theaters.

The Barbershop franchise has been on hold for over a decade: the first one came out all the way back in 2002, and Barbershop 2 followed shortly after in 2004. Ice Cube and Cedric the Entertainer will both be reprising their roles from the original series. Minaj, meanwhile, will join them in the new role of Draya, a young hairdresser with a job in the barbershop's beauty parlor.

She won't be the only big-name rapper joining the cast: Common and Eve will also appear, making this the movie guaranteed to feature the most rapper star power in 2015. Read more here.
