Matter of fact, just last night, my cousin who has lived in Minnesota his whole live, Apple Valley to be specific texted me: "Hey man, will you be coming back to Minny at all this summer?"

Another friend of mine asked almost the exact same question on the phone to me & he definitely said "Minny" and he's lived in West Bloomington his whole life. Well he lives in Uptown now technically...

I still hear it all the time & I dont even live there haven't for 9 years! haha
There's a number of people who will refer to Minneapolis (or the cities as a whole) as "Minny," but damn near 0 native Minnesotans call the state Minny. It wouldn't even make sense as the name of the state doesn't contain the pronunciation "minny."
