Halloween 2020 is in full swing and Lil Nas X already paid homage to Nicki Minaj with his costume. The “Old Town Road” rapper showed off his costume on Friday (Oct. 30) by sharing photos of himself dressed up as the rapper in her “Super Bass” video.

He donned the pink and platinum blonde wig with bangs and a skintight hot pink bodysuit that highlighted the enhanced curves that she wore in the video for the single from her 2010 Pink Friday album.

“NAS MARAJ,” he captioned the post. The costume should come as no surprise since Lil Nas X has expressed his love for the “MEGATRON” rapper in the past, and even claimed to run a stan account under the name “@nasmaraj” before he was famous.

He received support from his fans and other stars, like Iggy Azalea and Skai Jackson. “You win Halloween 2020!” the “Fancy” rapper commented. The Disney Channel star wrote: “NO YOU DID NOTTT.”

While the reactions were mostly positive, 50 Cent took to Twitter to share his reaction to the rapper’s photos in his costume. “What the f-ck, Nikki come get him !!! Lol,” the “Power” actor shared on Twitter on Saturday (Oct. 31.)

The “Panini” rapper fired back at 50’s criticism of his costume and reportedly responded to the diss on Twitter in a now-deleted message, writing, “Why u in barb business?”

50 continued to joke about the situation on Instagram by comparing Lil Nas X to a transgender woman who reportedly had a relationship with Young Buck.

“I think young Buck & lil nas x might make a love connection, if he get a BBL LOL he look like his last lover junior is that you junior?” he wrote on Instagram, along with a collage comparing the woman to the rapper in his costume. 50 and Buck’s feud intensified in 2019 when he exposed the rapper for having an alleged relationship with a transgender woman.
