Nas Calls Nicki Minaj His "Shorty" In New Series Of Photos

After reports emerged over the weekend that Nicki Minaj and Nas have been dating since May, the (alleged) high prile couple posted a new batch photos to their respective Instagram accounts on Sunday (September 17).

Minaj was more elusive with her caption, writing, “Nasty Nas hopped out the illmatic ’88 benz tryna holla @ me earlier today in Queens.”

Dating rumors have been flying since May when Minaj posted a photo herself with Nas at his Sweet Chick restaurant in New York. Then last week, a video surfaced Nas’ 44th birthday party that showed the Queens MC kissing and licking Minaj’s face.

Minaj broke up with former flame Meek Mill in January and has remained tight-lipped about her private life. During an interview with daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, she did admit she and Nas had sleepovers, but they hadn’t done the “nasty.”

“We have had sleepovers],” she said. “I go to him. I just thought him coming to me was too forward. Let me clarify … I know people are going to think … no. We didn’t do the …”

“Nasty,” DeGeneres said, completing Minaj’s sentence.

“Because you know, I’m just chillin’ right now,” Minaj continued. “I’m celibate. I wanted to go a year without dating any man. I hate men. But I might make an exception to the rule for him because he’s so dope.”

Whether the recent photoshoot was simply a pressional endeavor or a symbol something more (or both) remains to be seen.

For now, check out more their photos below.
