Nicki Minaj celebrated her birthday yesterday (Dec. 8), and received some very high praise from her boo thing Nas on her special day.

Esco posted a photo of Nicki sitting on a throne and rocking a crown on Instagram. He captioned the pic, "Queens Get The MFkN Money! Happy Birthday To The QUEEN OF NY / HIP HOP @nickiminaj."

In a second post, he uploaded a snippet of Lil Uzi Vert and Nicki's new video for "The Way Life Goes (Remix)," along with the caption, "BDAY Vibes."

Nas and Nicki appear to be coming out as a couple more publicly as time goes on. They reportedly started dating a couple months after she split with Meek Mill, sparking relationship rumors back in May. Nicki added more fuel to the fire by saying she and the Queens rap legend have "sleepovers," a short time later on Ellen.

They have been spotted together on numerous occasions and Nicki was front and center at God Son's 44th birthday party, back in September.

In music-related news, while Nicki is putting the finishing touches on her own album, she continues to stay popping via attachments to a couple of the hottest records on the streets. Migos recently released their video for "MotorSport" featuring Nicki and Cardi B, while Lil Uzi Vert put out the previously mentioned "The Way Life Goes (Remix)" featuring Nicki earlier this week.
