Drake is allegedly turning his attention to dating Nicki Minaj in the wake of his recent breakup with Rihanna, but it looks like Nicki’s boyfriend, Meek Mill, is hitting back.
While sources claimed that Drake was ready to get together and start dating Nicki, Mill appeared to slam the “Hotline Bling” rapper during a recent Funk Flex Freestyle rap.
According to Complex, Meek appeared to take serious aim at the Drake and his relationship with Minaj, who Mill’s reportedly been dating for the past two years, during the rap freestyle session.
“Posted up with Nicki, that’s when it get tricky,” Mill rapped, reported Complex. “N*****s in they feelings, that’s when it get Drizzy.”
Drizzy, of course, being Drake’s nickname.

Meek’s pretty scathing slam came amid reports suggesting that Drake is allegedly willing to wait for Nicki to become single in the wake of his recent breakup with Rihanna as a Hollywood Life source claimed that Drake is “infatuated” with Minaj and supposedly believes they’ll soon be dating, despite Minaj not being single.
“Drake’s going to date around the block for a cool minute until the woman he truly wants is single — and that special lady is Nicki,” an insider revealed to the site of Drake’s alleged plans to start dating Nicki. “[Nicki’s] the epitome of everything he wants in a woman,” the insider continued, adding that Drake “is infatuated with her.”
While Drake and Nicki are yet to comment on the dating rumors while Minaj is reportedly still dating Mill, Hollywood Life alleged that Nicki is actually acting as a shoulder to cry on for the rapper following his recent breakup with Rihanna.
“Nicki was a little sad hearing Drake pout and decided to comfort him,” the source claimed of how Minaj and Drake have been interacting in the wake of his and Rihanna’s split, adding that Nicki has been “calling him babe” and “telling him he’s such a good man.”
“Nicki has always spoiled Drake and that’s why he’s so attached to her,” the site’s insider continued. “[Minaj] is doing the most and telling him everything he wants to hear.”
While Drake and Nicki have not officially spoken out regarding the supposed dating rumors, the gossip site even alleged that one of the big reasons Rihanna and Drake stopped dating exclusively is because of the rapper’s alleged “infatuation” with the “Starships” singer.
“Drake could never look at Rihanna and tell her that he’s in love with Nicki too,” the site’s insider revealed, alleging that Drake and Rihanna supposedly “had an argument about Nicki because Drake kept rapping the lyrics to a few of his and Nicki’s [collaborations]” just before their breakup.
The site’s report suggesting that Minaj caused a rift between Drake and Rihanna has not been confirmed by the two, but fans have been taking to social media to speculate on the dating rumors swirling around Drake and Minaj following his Rihanna breakup.
“Can Drake date Nicki Minaj now thanks,” Twitter user @sinlesscurls asked amid the dating reports, while Twitter user @suescurls wrote following Drake and Rihanna’s breakup, “Now [Minaj] & Meek Mill need to just go they separate ways so she can marry Drake.”
But as the dating rumors continue to swirl around Minaj and Drake, E! News confirmed Rihanna’s split with her “Work” collaborator and revealed that the two are now seeing other people after reportedly being exclusive in their dating lives for the past few months.
“Rihanna and Drake are seeing other people at the moment,” a source confirmed but did not mention whether or not Minaj really had an involvement in their breakup. “They are not exclusive anymore. They still love each other, but their schedules have gotten in the way.”
Do you think Drake and Nicki Minaj could soon be dating despite her relationship with Meek Mill?
