Back in 2011, he made it clear that he’d love to hook up with Nicki Minaj in the Bad Meets Evil single “Fast Lane”. Now, just recently Eminem says he wants a relationship with her.

The chatter started last week, when Nicki jokingly told a fan on Instagram that she was dating the rapper… after she dropped his name in YG’s new single “Big Bank”. “Told’em I met Slim Shady / Bagged an Em / Once he go black, he’ll be back again,” Nicki raps om the DJ Mustard-produced single.

Eminem fueled the rumor mill, when he responded in the comments with “girl you know it’s true”.

Nicki would then follow, saying: “babe I thought we were gonna keep it on the low til the wedding. Yikes. I’ll talk to you when I get home.”

Simple right? Well, Eminem kept the news headline going, when he shouted out Nicki during at Boston Calling on Sunday (May 27). “So wait, one more time. Let me make sure so I can actually make this official. How many people in Boston want me to date Nicki Minaj?” Eminem asked.

The crowd responded with applause. “Well, god dammit, me too,” added Em. “Nicki, if you get this message, just text me later, we’ll talk about it.”

Well, Nicki got the message and took to social media to respond. “LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. The fact that he’s silly & a goof just like me😩. Love him so much,” she said. “Em we need you on the #Queen album. That’s where our 1st date will be; at the studio while I gaze into ur beautiful eyes as u write ur verse.”
