DJ Khaled Proposes To Nicki Minaj With $500,000 Ring

In a video, DJ Khaled says he loves Nicki Minaj before proposing to her with a ring from Rafaello & Co. in Manhattan, New York.

DJ Khaled has proposed to Nicki Minaj in a new video. The producer took a moment to explain his love for Minaj before showing off a ring he says he bought for her, a ring said to cost $500,000.  

“I want to be honest with you," DJ Khaled says in the MTV News video. "I love you. I like you. I want you to be mine. The only reason I'm not telling you this face to face is because I know that you're busy." 

Khaled continues by saying that he wants her to know how serious he is.

"You need a man like me in your life that's gonna take care of you and respect you. You gotta take your time and think about it, I understand," he says. "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." 

Khaled then shows the ring he purchased. According to MTV News, this was a 10 karat diamond ring valued at approximately $500,000. Reports claim he purchased the ring from Rafaello & Co. in Manhattan, New York. The video can be seen below.

DJ Khaled and Nicki Minaj are label mates at YMCMB. They've collaborated on wax, most notably on "Take it to the Head." There have been no rumors linking Minaj and Khaled in any romantic manner in the past. There has been no official word on why this clip was made and released other than what Khaled says in the video. 

In the proposal video, Khaled makes a reference to his next album, Suffering from Success. In an interview from earlier this year, Khaled explained the new album's sound and direction.

"When I was coming up, I didn’t know that when you win, you gotta deal with a lot of this unnecessary bullshit a lot. So my album sound is going to… You’re going to hear different types of anthems: the suffering side, and the success side.”

Nicki Minaj has not responded to the proposal as of yet.

    "just checked the numbers bud and it definitely has not easily cleared 600k in sales" He went gold back on 9-13-12. Doesn't take a math whiz to figure out that 530 number you provided came from out your ass.

    "how is he doing it better if he has no platinum albums? i can name 10+ rappers with more bread" The only people worth more are the usual suspects like Eminem, Jay, Wayne, Kanye, 50, and T.I. Factor in Drake, and NM so whose left?

      ludacris, ice cube, birdman, diddy, dr dre, will smith,, shit even nicki minaj got more paper than officer ross
    Big Guwop is the realest rapper and heres why. 1) all other rappers rap about being gangster shooting and killing but they havent done it. 2) Eminem raps about killing he hasnt. 3)Jay z raps in open letter about sending shots he hasnt. 4)Nas raps about how he is a queens thug but he wasn't. 5)Most of the rappers rap about stuff they havent done yet you all support them and say its real rap. 6)When rick ross does it you all claim he is fake and say its fake rap. This shows that hiphop fans are hypocritical and all these real hiphop fan wanna be's are just some unjustified haters whose opinions are just as irrelevent as the swag fag rapper fans. BIG GUWOP KILLED A MAN HE WAS A DRUG DEALER BEFORE RAPPER HE HAS STREET CREDENTIALS HE IS THE ONLY RAPPER THAT RAPS ABOUT FACTS THERE FORE BIG GUWOP IS THE REALEST RAPPER IN THE RAP GAME AND THATS A FACT!

    What kind of man asks a women to marry him that isn't his girlfriend and actually thinks theres a chance of her saying yes. What kind of a man spends half a milli (even though hes lying) on a ring for a bitch he never even kissed? LMAO i hope he kept that receipt, otherwise he gonna have to give it to some hoodrat
  • Chris Etrata
    Can someone tell me why DJ Khaled gets to lend his name and nothing more and why I can't? Khaled doesn't produce but dickrides off of their success.
  • Dallas Texas
    this is sad, people will do anything to promote their albums.. if he is being serious then i lost respect for him, no man should ask a woman to marry him like this and who gives a fuck how much the ring costs? Khaled is wak as fuck haha.

      3 of those people actually make music and some might even argue they have talent. Khaled is a background dancer eating off other niggas plates. He does nothing and has no skills

      We saw the Busta video she was twerking that ass and Khaled was either staring at busta's gut or covering his face with his hands! He is a coward he could have asked her right then and there!

    "and GOD FORGIVES, I DON'T has not even sold 600k yet so i dont see how it has possibly sold more than BISD" It sold more first week than BISD, and has easily cleared 600k in sales. While that's not record breaking, it's not bad either.
