Eminem might well be dating Nicki Minaj. But he’s certainly being cagey about it.
Social media lit up over the weekend on that news that hip-hop could have a hot, new power couple. Nicki set it off when one of her followers came out and asked if she was dating the Rap God. “Yes,” she responded.
The rumor mill has been grinding away since Minaj dropped “Barbie Tingz” in April, on which she raps: “I’m still fly, just bagged a white guy.” And she doubles-down on her star-studded guest appearance alongside Big Sean and 2 Chainz on YG’s “Big Bank,” which released on Friday (May 25). “Told them I met Slim Shady, bag the Em/ Once he go black, he’ll be back again,” the Young Money spitter shrewdly rhymes.”
But Eminem poured cold water on the gossip when he played Boston Calling on Sunday (May 27) night. The Detroit star gave a shoutout to Minaj and and joked: “Baby I’ll be home tonight.” The crowd screamed, and he continued, “Boston, how many of you want me to date Nicki Minaj?” Cue more screams. “Well, god dammit, me too. Nicki, if you get this message, just text me later, we’ll talk about it.”
So that’s where we’re at. Check out the clip below.
