Young Money rap stars Drake and Nicki Minaj have taken their working relationship to the next level and announced being a couple.
Minaj initially asked Drake if he was still going to make an “announcement” via Twitter.
“U scurred? @drakkardnoir u ready to make the announcement or wha?,” she tweeted Friday (August 27).
“Yes, its true. Drake and I tied the knot. > RT @drakkardnoir@nickiminaj Baby I am never scared. PROUD is more the word I would use.” (Nicki Minaj’s Twitter)
Drake later replied and announced his feelings toward Minaj.
“@nickiminaj Baby I am never scared. PROUD is more the word I would use.”
“Please refer to @nickiminaj as Mrs. Aubrey Drake Graham and dont stare at her too long. She’s finally mine. :)” (Drake’s Twitter)
The tweets also caught the attention of rapper Slim Thug who shared his reaction.
“F*ckk i lost anotha RT @NICKIMINAJ: Yes, its true. Drake and I tied the knot. > RT @drakkardnoir @nickiminaj Baby I am never scared. PROUD” (Slim Thug’s Twitter)
Last June, Drake opened up and revealed his feelings toward Minaj.
“When I was on tour … I saw Nicki for the first time and, like, literally fell in love,” he said in an interview with DJ Envy. “She had this snap-back hat on that said ‘Minaj.’ She used to wear that every single day. She was like a theater student and she was so cold at rapping…I remember one of the first nights that we were out in Miami and I went to Jerry’s [Famous Deli]. I was like [to Minaj], ‘You want food, you hungry?,’ and she was like, ‘Yeah, I want some food.’ I was like, ‘I’m in, we gon’ eat food together.’ I came to her door and she took the food and shut the door in my face! I was just like, ‘Man, this is gonna be a long road for us.’ … I’ve always really, actually, really had a crush on her, always really loved her, and she’s always just looked at me as, like, her little brother.” (“Sucker Free”)
