We've realized that when it comes to rap beefs, it's like nothing is off limits, and I am pretty sure someone is gunning for Nicki Minaj and her brother. It's not a funny situation at all, but her brother, Jelani Maraj has just gotten his sentence. He was in court facing a predatory sexual assault case, or simply said, child rape and was found guilty in the case. brother was just sentenced to 25 years to life in prison following the guilty verdict in his child rape trial. Clearly, this doesn't sit will with Nicki because although she visited her brother while he was in jail, TMZ reports she was only there as support for her mother. Jelani was sentenced to 25 years to life in jail for the child rape.
