Wow. Nas & Nicki Minaj have split.
According to TMZ, the Queens power couple was just too good to last. Their inside sources — though the article didn’t contain a single name or quote — said that the pair are done for.
Check out their scoop below:
“Sources close to the situation tell TMZ … the rappers broke up a few weeks ago after the relationship ran out of steam. They’ve been dating since June 2017, but we’re told living in different cities was just too much.
There were recent reports Nicki was pregnant, but we’re told there’s no truth to that.”
While Nicki and Nas were coy about the whole thing, Nicki told Ellen that they had “sleepovers” while Nas posted to social media showing the couple getting touchy-feely several times.
“He is the king of Queens, and I like to think I’m the queen of Queens,” she told the Ellen while on her show. “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.”
The photos were probably the strongest evidence that the rap titans were paired up. Via HipHopMyWay‘s own reporting on the incident:
“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.)”
It just wasn’t meant to be. Now the rappers can focus on what really matters: paying their taxes and burying Remy Ma.
Minaj has feuded with Remy Ma very publicly over the last year. Who better to give her tips on how to respond to a track like “Shether” than the man who wrote “Ether?” With Nicki’s full attention on Remy and her new album, it could spell disaster for the Plata o Plomo rapper.
Not Enough Time
The fact that Nicki is busy was underlined recently by an ultimatum she gave to her fans. After catching wind of fans who wanted her to have a mini Minaj, she forced them to make a choice.
“Y’all want the album or the baby?” she wrote on Twitter. “Cuz ch- y’all ain’t bout to get both.”
There is only one answer (album), but that didn’t stop fans from weighing in on Team Baby or asking why she couldn’t do both.
“Don’t give us any ultimatums, sis! If Beyonce can multitask….so can the best rapper alive! PeriodT!!!” wrote one ecstatic fan @HoneyGuwop.
“Btch I’m not waddling across nobody stage talking bout feelin myself I’m feelin myself I’m feelin my feelin my….” Nicki responded, making a joke about Beyonce’s continued performances throughout her pregnancy.
What do you think? Are you sad that Nicki and Nas have split? Were they ever really paired up in the first place?
Seriously, is there any evidence beyond a few drunk selfies? Who will be the next rap power couple to form from the split of Nas and Nicki?
