Is Nasika confirmed?
Nas was feeling good at his birthday party. Wearing an outfit that can only be described as upper-crust pajamas and never seen without a drink in his hand, Nas lived his best life for a few hours. He sealed it with some serious smooching with America’s #bodygoals and Remy Ma’s #careergoals, Nicki Minaj.
The shots from inside the party start out tame enough. Nas had his arm around Minaj when the cake came out; it all seemed chummy, but turns out he wanted to get friendly. (The later videos seem to suggest that he succeeded.) After the crowd sang Stevie Wonder’s “Happy Birthday,” a later Snapchat from one of Nas’ friends shows the rapper putting some sloppy moves on Minaj to the sounds of Mint Condition’s “U Send Me Swingin.” (You know, just in case you needed a reminder that Nas is 44.)
An even later shot from Nicki Minaj showed the rapper batting away Nasty Nas as she tried to send a goodnight message to their fans.
“Oh my god, Nasir,” she yelled through laughs as Nas tried to kiss and lick her face.
The clip ended with a very drunk Nas calling out every other rapper in the world and mumbling. Good thing this rumored power couple probably has drivers to get them wherever they’re going.
Nicki and Nas rumors have swirled before. Minaj stoked the fires when she appeared on Ellen. She danced around the question of whether the pair was together while gamely keeping the idea out in the world.
“He is the king of Queens, and I like to think I’m the queen of Queens,” she said. “He’s a rap legend. Let’s just say that I have a lot of respect for him, and, you know, he’s kind of cute, too.” She then added, “I go to him ’cause…I don’t know. I just thought him coming to me was too forward.”
It doesn’t look like Nas had any problem being forward at this party. Maybe the alcohol changed the dynamic a bit, but it’s clear that Nas was being a little more frank with what he was trying to do than he was back then.
The rumors reared into life again when Nicki was spotted celebrating at Nas’ restaurant Sweet Chick. The photos of Nas and Nicki lounging together — along with Nicki’s caption reading “Only KINGS recognize QUEENS” — sent the chatty part of the web into a tizzy. Of course, it could just be a bit of wordplay on the fact that both rappers are from Queens.
The internet as a whole has been clamoring for any details of Nicki’s relationship status since she and Meek split. Any time Meek opens his mouth about their time together, he makes headlines, and any time Nicki stands within five feet of an unmarried man it does the same. Still, the videos do look to be a bit more than just friends goofing around.
