When Nicki Minaj first talked about dating Nas on The Ellen Degeneres Show in May 2017, there were a lot of raised eyebrows about the authenticity of the relationship, with some thinking it was a publicity stunt to distract from her beef with Remy Ma.
The relationship fell out of the press only to resurface in July with rumors the two had split, as indicated by Nas liking a Meek Mill Instagram post said to be a rant against Minaj. (Sheesh!)
Whatever bumps in the road they may have hit, the two seem to very much be back on. Minaj was at Nas’s side for his 44th birthday celebration (she’s a Sag, he’s a Virgo, tricky!), and yesterday (September 18th), Nas and Minaj posted Instagram images of themselves stunting next to Nas’s gorgeous vintage Mercedes Benz in Queens, which they both claim as home.
In an image shot from the passenger seat of Nas’s car, Minaj perhaps was commenting on the status of the relationship with a caption that read, “We Gucci.”
A lover of a good double entendre, the comment also was a statement on her Gucci top, tracksuit and crystal headband. She paired the outfit with Reebok Freestyle High kicks, tagged with the hashtag 5411, an affectionate nickname that speaks to the shoe’s original price with New York City sales tax included.
Coordinating their efforts, Nas was also covered in Gucci from head to toe.
Both Minaj and Nas are working on albums.
