Nas was feeling it, too.

While Nas’ birthday was on Thursday (Sept. 14), he celebrated it on Wednesday night at The Pool Lounge in New York City. The rap legend turned 44 years old and it was a blessing, and who better to celebrate that blessing than with the people you love. Among the guests was the beautiful Alicia Keys and the talented Swizz Beatz.

But the guest of the evening was Nicki Minaj. The two have been linked for some time now – probably since her “Right by my Side” video where they kissed. An elated Nas was caught licking Nicki’s face and caressing her waist on Instagram Live. She kept telling him to stop — in a flirtatious voice, of course.

None of this comes as a shock. After all, On Ellen, Minaj did reveal the two have sleepovers from time to time.
