One of rap’s great friendships has frayed so much that Nicki Minaj and Drake are no longer following each other on Instagram.
A video posted to the Shade Room’s Instagram account on Wednesday night shows that two emcees have stopped following one another on the social network.
The two most successful signings off of Lil Wayne’s Young Money imprint, the two rappers’ careers have been closely intertwined since they both broke through around the same time at the end of the last decade.
But over the past few years, as they’ve become chart-topping music stars, there have been several signs they were drifting apart. On Drake’s 2013 song “Tuscan Leather,” he rapped, “Not even talkin’ to Nicki, communication is breakin.’” And two years after that, the Canadian got into a much-hyped feud with Minaj’s then-boyfriend, Meek Mill.
Then this summer, on her hit single, “Barbie Dreams,” Minaj, 35, made fun of Drake, 32, rapping, “Drake worth a hundred mill, he always buyin’ me s–t / But I don’t know if the p—y wet or if he cryin’ and s–t.”
While it’s unclear if the unfollowing actually means anything, it does come on the heels of Drake burying his beef with Meek.
In September, a month after the release of “Barbie Dreams,” Drake brought Meek out onstage while he was performing in Boston. Then, last week, he was featured on “Going Hard,” a track off the latter’s new album, “Championships.”
