Lil Nas X is paying homage to one of his favorite rappers this Halloween, dressing in full drag as Nicki Minaj from her 2011 music video, “Super Bass.”
Donning himself “NAS MARAJ” — as Maraj is Nicki’s legal surname — the “Old Town Road” artist shared his impressive Halloween makeover Friday night on social media, where he’s seen wearing a pink jumpsuit, full make-up, and one of Nicki’s signature two-tone wigs.
This summer, X confessed to being a member of Minaj’s beloved “Barb” fanbase, revealing that before finding his own fame, he ran a fan account dedicated to the rapper and new mom.
Before coming out as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, X denied running the “@nasmaraj” account for fear of being outed.
“It was a bit of a sting when you denied being a barb, but I understand,” Minaj tweeted after X confessed. “Congratulations on building up your confidence to speak your truth.”
Minaj has yet to respond to X’s Halloween look.
