With there being no reports of them ever dating, DJ Khaled appeared on MTV News yesterday to propose to “Young Money” rappper Nicki Minaj while holding a 10 karat radiant cut diamond ring valued $500,000.
The 37-year-old music exec and rapper had this to say, “I want to be honest with you. I love you. I like you. I want you. I want you to be mine,” along with some cheesy elevator music playing in the background.
He then adds,
“The only reason I’m not telling you this face to face is because I know that you’re busy…You need a man like me in your life that’s gonna take care of you and respect you,” he continues. “You gotta take your time and think about it, I understand… but I know I have to be here today to let you know how serious I am and about how serious this is to me.”
“I want to let your fans know, my fans know, my family, your family, that I wanna marry you. I been working hard to get this ring… Nicki Minaj… will you marry me?”
DJ Khaled, whose album Suffering from Success drops September 24, and Nicki Minaj are on the same record label [Young Money] and recently worked together on Busta Rhymes’ latest track, “Twerk It.”
The “Starships” rapper, who is reportedly dating Safaree Samuels, has yet to publicly respond to the proposal. However, she did retweet a link to the video on her Twitter.
No word yet if the proposal is sincere or a bizarre publicity stunt. Plus “DJ Khaled” is currently trending on Twitter and his proposal has birthed endless jokey memes, including many that feature Minaj’s ex, Drake.
