Nicki Minaj presents Eminem the Best Rap Album Award for ‘Recovery’ onstage during The 53rd Annual GRAMMY Awards held at Staples Center on February 13, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.
Last week was blessed with several high-profile album releases, two new Drake songs, and some major announcements, marking it an important week for hip-hop in 2018. With Nicki Minaj delaying her upcoming album until August, she appeared on YG’s new single “Big Bank,” confusing some with her “Slim Shady” lyrics. In response to a fan asking if she and the Detroit legend were dating, Nicki simply answered “yes,” before Em stepped in to continue the trolling. While the joke began in jest, it appears as though Marshall may actually be shooting his shot with Nicki Minaj after his recent performance at the Boston Calling festival.
Joking last week about “keeping their relationship on the low,” Em may actually be down to go on a few dates with the “Anaconda” songstress as he exclaimed during his headlining set, “Let me make sure so I can actually make this official. How many people in Boston want me to date Nicki Minaj?” After receiving an astounding crowd reaction, Em asserted, “God damn it, me too!” His DJ attempted to take over microphone duties but Shady was having none of that, hopping back on for a final word. “Nicki if you get this message, just text me later, we’ll talk about it.”
Whether or not Eminem is still trolling at this point is unclear as, since the joke has run its course over a few days, he could be genuinely trying to get with the Queens rapper. Nicki Minaj liked the post, confirming that she’s gotten the message. Wonder what was discussed in their texts…
