Nicki Minaj’s brother has been given a sentence of 25 years to life in prison after being found guilty of charges relating to child rape, TMZ reports. Jelani Maraj, who Nicki referenced on her emotional Pinkprint opener “All Things Go,” was found guilty of predatory sexual assault against a child and endangering the welfare of a child, and was sentenced by New York judge Robert McDonald. “We hope that today’s verdict will help the family in the healing process,” the Nassau County District Attorney told TMZ. Nicki visited Maraj in jail in 2017, and did not testify in the trial. Read TMZ’s report here.
