Nicki Minaj to be face of new Pepsi brand | News

And the rich get richer. After landing at #15 on their 2011 Hip-Hop Cash Kings list, Forbes is reporting that Nicki Minaj will be the face of the latest Pepsi beverage, “Pop.”

“You’ll see the commercial probably in the next two months,” Glu Agency head Derek Jackson tells Forbes. “She’ll be the face of the brand … it’s going to be explosive.”

The deal is apparently of the multimillion dollar variety.

This is not the first instance of the Glu Agency helping to infuse more cash money into the YMCMB coffers.

The agency recently partnered with The Blueprint Group to help launch the DEWeezy campaign, which is a strategic advertising partnership between Lil’ Wayne and Mountain Dew, another PepsiCo brand.
