Happy Birthday, Nas! The hip hop legend turns 44 today, and last night he celebrated in style.
But you didn’t think that Nas would roll up to the party alone, did you? He brought rumored boo, Nicki Minaj. In case you forgot, or maybe you were just pushing it out of your mind because you didn’t want to admit that Nas has been scooped up, the rumor mill has been churning ever since Nicki posted this photo of the pair back in May.
“Only KINGS recognize QUEENS. @sweetchicklife has the best food ? congrats @nas ?”
Nicki told Ellen, “He’s so dope. He’s a king, he’s such a king…Shout out to Queens, New York. I have to say that. We’re both from Queens. And he is the king of Queens, and I’d like to think I’m the queen of Queens. He’s a rap legend, I have a lot of respect for him…and he’s kind of cute too.”
But now the duo looks particularly coupled up–It is cuffing season after all.
Look at that PDA (or, you know, don’t if you’re not into that)! Admit it: Nicki and Nas dancing to “Happy Birthday” is pretty much your feel good moment of the day. Hey, maybe love does exist after all, and the King and Queen of Queens reign supreme.
From the Queensbridge projects to seven consecutive platinum albums, Nas is cemented as one of the greatest hip hop artists of all time.
