Check out Nicki Minaj in the 2nd trailer for the upcoming “Barbershop 3: The Next Cut.” The reigning queen of hip hop stars as “Draya” and joins an all-star cast including Common, Cedric the Entertainer, Eve, Regina Hall, Ice Cube and more.

It’s been more than 10 years since our last appointment at Calvin’s Barbershop. Calvin (Ice Cube) and his longtime crew, including Eddie (Cedric the Entertainer), are still there, but the shop has undergone some major changes. Most noticeably, our once male-dominated sanctuary is now co-ed. The ladies bring their own flavor, drama and gossip to the shop challenging the fellas at every turn. Despite the good times and camaraderie within the shop, the surrounding community has taken a turn for the worse, forcing Calvin and our crew to come together to not only save the shop, but their neighborhood.

“Barbershop: The Next Cut” also stars Sean Patrick Thomas, Anthony Anderson, Jaszmine Lewis, and JB Smoove. It is directed by Malcolm Lee with a screenplay by “black-ish” creator Kenya Barris and “The Neighbors” Tracy Oliver.
