Ever since footage of Nicki Minaj and Nas looking extremely couple-ish hit social media, the internet has been brimming with excitement over the possibility of a new hip hop power couple. Sure, a source close to the situation may have denied it, claiming that Nicki and Nas are "just very dear friends," but it was already too late: Nicki MiNas is already a thing.
So, what does Nicki's ex Safaree Samuels think about it all? (You probably didn't ask, but let's just pretend you did for a minute.)
"It is what it is," he recently told The Source. He then offered some advice for the couple, saying, "If you want it to be real you just got to keep it real, and let it be for really home and not the public. So once you start doing all of that stuff to prove something is real that's going to put stress on relationships and it just makes a relationship way harder and everything starts to look corny after a while. But when it's private and don't nobody know nothing and all they can do is speculate, then it's like okay cool. You want to be in their business or we can't because we don't know sh*t."
It's not bad advice, all things considered — not that Nicki and Nas need it. As a source explained to E! News this week, "Nicki and Nas are just very dear friends, nothing romantic."
