It looks like old skool rapper Nasir Bin Olu Dara Jones and rapper Meek Mill's ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj are keeping each other warm at night. During an appearance on The Ellen Show, Minaj, 34, admitted to having "sleepovers" with the 43-year-old "Illmatic" rapper.

"There's a rumor y'all are dating, and if it's true, I'm all for it," said Ellen, who is openly lesbian.

"He's so dope," gushed Minaj, "He is the King of Queens, and I'd like to think I'm the Queen of Queens."

Minaj called Nas "a rap legend," saying, "I have a lot of respect for him. And, you know, he's kind of cute, too."

When Degeneres pressed Minaj on whether she 's having "sleepovers" with Nas, Minaj couldn't tell a lie.

"We have. Yup," she laughed.

Minaj's fans took that to mean she and Nas are officially dating. But we all know sleepovers mean something different to a man.

Minaj admitted that much when she confessed, "I'm just chillin' right now. I'm celibate. I wanted to go a year without dating any man. I hate men."

Minaj is still getting over her public breakup with rapper Meek Mill, who dragged her on social media.

    Nas must be LONELY. This is for PUBLICITY I'm sure. PR wheel working. Bad move on his part. She is a JOKE.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I thought the question was inappropriate. But, her and Ellen appear to be friednds...or at least that's what Nicki wants the public to believe. I really wish anyone would ask me on national television if I was screwing someone.

    Nas has a peculiar taste in women anyways, so I wouldn't be surprised.

  • tintin

    i actually think this is a good couple.

  • helpme2understand

    Cute couple

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    So is this what Nicki has succumbed to... hopping from one industry tool to the next?
    Major side eye

    I just wish Nicki would just tell the truth.Her loyal following would accept it and understand.

  • Reina1718

    Sorry, dont believe it ?????

  • goat

    That's pretty much all of them. Everybody in the industry screwing the same people.

  • Reina1718

    As u c he hasnt uttered a word.

  • Guess Who

    LMFAO. Nicki played this hand well. Remy Ma eviscerated her in SHEther and she knew it. She clapped those bathroom caulk, fake cheeks all over him, convincing him NOT to let Remy use it and allow it to be played...but you hear NO FRAUDS day and night on the radio.

    I cannot stand Nicki Minaj. I think she's wack garbage but as a manipulator...that bish rung Remy up like a bag of groceries, lol.

  • Anunnaki

    "Nasir Bin Olu Dara Jones" is this his full name,

  • Guess Who

    LOL I noticed that too. Maybe he feeling some type of way as seeing that Nicki ONLY started checking for him AFTER SHEther.

  • SuperScooper1

    Nasir, get ready for those sexually transmitted L's...

  • SuperScooper1

    Nicki is looking for legitimacy through proximity to a real rapper, and Nas is looking for cross-over appeal because deep down he may have always craved that. Everyone wins/Everyone actually loses.

    He'll lose more fans than he gains.

  • Nataliegaye

    Well this coupling makes wayyyy more sense than her and Meek. He is low key but strong which is what she needs.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I hope he's smart enough to see that.

  • Coy little wink

    Loose lips sink ships ?

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Sounds like a PR stunt.

  • Hugga Bunch

    Nas would be the one to still kiss you when he mad. Yes please. ?

  • Applebootay

    Ellen is great, good at getting her to open up about their relationship with a clever joke. I was smiling and laughing as if she was asking me the questions. IMO, they would actually make a good couple. I can see Nas elevating her...I guarantee her music start sounding more intelligent. Kudos to them!

  • Hugga Bunch

    +1 ?

  • Scromes1212

    The God MC, dating what some would call a black girl lost lol the irony.

  • Rayne

  • zawnn

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Str8tUpMenace

    Her ass is just looking for a new ghostwriter. Don't do it, Nas. Don't do it.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Love her shoes, tho.

  • Renee26

    I will claw that bitch's eyes out!!!

  • Renee26

    I hope so!!!

  • Renee26

    The producer owned the tracks though so that was a fail...We don't hear SHether on the radio probably because it's too long and mean

  • Renee26


  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    no one is here for this fake chick at all ??.... Next .... Nas smash and pass and keep it moving.... strap up...

  • Jeanine McNeal

    She'll regret running her mouth ? ?

  • Hugga Bunch

    Yes, Ellen comes off very genuine. And I can see Nas and Nicki as a power couple.

  • Courtney Wheeler

    she talks tooo much

  • Panamababy82

    I am not a fan on Nicki, but I think a stable man like Nas can bring some purpose in her life and possible give her the ability to make descent music.

  • imright


  • imright

    if she gets too lyrical we will kno ???

  • Yoni7

    All conscious and shit.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I was eyeing them too, bet they are pricey.

  • Tee Tee

    Nas is so fine, 43 looks so good on him D AMN

  • Str8tUpMenace


  • T Kenny

    this bird is desperately trying to keep her head above water. nas is a true friend. ?

  • imright

    Ron Browz said he has no prob wit Remy using the Ether instrumental

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Right. Can you imagine a "conscious" Nicki? LMAO

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    At his age he's basically in semi-retirement, so I dont think he has much he's going to lose careerwise at this point.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    So am I the only one who thinks a 9 year gap is a bit much? I know for me it would be... but if it works for them, so be it.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Hell can I sleep over too?

  • Ms.Devereaux

    I'm not with this at all cmon Nas say it ain't so!!! ?

  • darealwifey


  • Ms.Devereaux

    Wonder how much they paying Nas to pretend? ? But given his history I'm a little nervous

  • hottlanta

    YAWN!!! Who cares about who is zooming who.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Depends on what stage of their lives they're in and the age of the two parties involved. The age gap between Joe camel & Yawncè is 12 years . Hell Nas is 14 years older than me and I'd cut onika for him.

  • ebonics

    Nas playing himself if this is true. Come on son, you can do better than icki miraj!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ebonics

    hahhhhahahha! Me too, Id leave that hoe in a ditch for some Nasir Jones. We here >-<

  • Guess Who

    Really? Hmmm......why aint they playing it? Nicki has that much power?

  • Sorry_Not_Sorry

    This sh it is so calculated. Funny how she makes a announcement about getting with Nas but Meek Mill ugly a $$ just showed up lol

  • Monday

    Nicki is bi-polar in everything she says and does.


    She went to Sweet Chick's. Nas launch where the rumor started and Nicki loves it as long as people don't remind her of Remy Ma ended her rap career.

    Nicki is the new Kim Kardashian... Will use anything and anyone to get where she needs to be.

  • Blak

    She hates men and Elen and her audience are the perfect people to tell that to. The truth is she has no respect for herself and her body and will screw down anything that flashes her money. she has such a nasty attitude and I look forward to hearing the next man that screws her over

  • Yoni7

    Never. I REALLY wouldn't take her serious then. I don't now. So either way.....LOL

  • Fire & Ice

    This is a good look for Nicky. Nas is a legend in the game and well respected!


    That won't last no time if true..Nas doesn't take me as a gimmicking type,,..

  • Queen of EVERYTHING

    She cut that check for Nas to go along with this. Period. ?

  • Yardgirl

    This is what I said too!

  • Yardgirl

    This gif is giving me life!! DWL!!

  • Diva4lyfe

    Nas is the best out there and him and Nicki is not a good look he to classy for her. I hope they stuntin for an upcoming demo or something


    Public relations 101, a new relationship will give them plenty to talk about. Her image has been taking beating

  • Psychic Lulu

    I hope he doesn't get her pregnant. Ugh.




    Peep Niki, laughing with her hand covering her mouth in this interveiw.

    She is not shy, or bashful, have seen her videos, she loves to expose her body. Also look at her early interveiws, the shy girl act is flattering to the public, it makes them protective of you.She has been coached

  • Justlooknout

    Yea me and mister peeped this when he got salty over Remy DISS. YEAP

  • Tea??

    Good. Maybe she'll get some decent bars from this relationship since meek couldn't deliver and she dumped her original ghostwriter Safaree who at least made her sound decent ?

  • Danyelle Little

    This cannot be real. No way is NAS into Nicki, unless he's jumped the shark.

  • don juan

    Nas was messy in Shether gate. Fat Joe take notes.

  • Malcom Flex
