Nicki Minaj has had high-prile relationships Nas and Meek Mill, but there may be a new Shady character in her life.
The Young Money rapper is sparking romance rumors with Eminem following her lyrics on YG’s “Big Bank” single.
“Told’em I met Slim Shady / Bagged an Em / Once he go black, he’ll be back again,” she raps on the DJ Mustard-produced track, which also features Big Sean and 2 Chainz.
Minaj posted the lyrics as a caption on Instagram, prompting one fan to ask: “You dating Eminem???” Nicki responded with a simple “yes.”
While Nicki is likely just joking about dating the Detroit rapper, the two have shown their chemistry in the past, collaborating on “Roman’s Revenge” f Nicki’s 2010 album Pink Friday.
She is now readying her fourth album Queen for release on Aug. 10. It was previously due June 15, but was pushed back.
Minaj dated Nas before separating in December. Before that, she was in a relationship with Meek Mill for around two years.
UPDATE: Eminem, who usually shies away from social media, added to the frenzy by responding to Nicki on Instagram.
“girl you know it’s true,” he said when asked if he was dating Minaj.
Nicki played into the rumors with her response. “babe I thought we were gonna keep it on the low til the wedding,” she wrote. “Yikes. I’ll talk to you when I get home.”
