Drake has kept his love for Young Money label mate Nicki Minaj no secret, but after Nicki sparked rumors of a feud between them when she alluded to certain artists being “ungrateful,” many thought she was referencing the Canadian rapper. For a brief second at Summer Jam last night Nicki added fuel to the flame when during her headlining set at Metlife Stadium in New Jersey she announced that there was a dude from Young Money that she no longer effed with. Thinking that explained why Drizzy had yet to grace the stage with her, out of nowhere came the “Take Care” singer who promptly acknowledged Nicki Minaj as the queen, and then picked her up like so.
Anytime a woman with that much behind straddles a man who hints at being in love with her, you know the rumor mill is going to go into overdrive and that’s exactly what happened when this pic hit the net. Nicki was quick to shut down talk of she and Drake being more than friends, posting the photo on her Instagram page and writing “Yall gotta chill. Lol this my brother.” But for many, calling a dude who admires you a brother is the 2014 version of “she say he just a friend.” Those who do believe Nicki only considers Drake a brother, however, are already getting out tissues for ya boy. Note the tweet below:
Drake wasn’t the only YMCMB member shown love by Nicki last night. When label head Lil Wayne hit the stage, Nicki let it be known that she will rep Weezy til the death of her for him putting her own and being the only one to support her from day one and you can see in the pic below that Wayne most definitely appreciated the love.
Oh and for anyone thinking Drake and Nicki’s connection on stage may spark a rift between the black barbie and Rihanna, think no more. The two were seen together backstage and all appears to be well.
