Ah, the classic shoutout to the punter.
What does a Venn diagram of Nicki Minaj fans and people who know Brad Wing look like?
Nicki is a world famous rapper with countless millions of fans around the world. Wing is the punter for the Giants.
But Nicki is a Giants fan and Wing is a Nicki fan, which led this little moment of serendipity earlier this month. Wing posted a video of himself working out to Nicki’s music and she responded in a comment that he’d be getting a shoutout in her new track due out on the 30th.
Sure enough, when her song “Skrt on Me” with Calvin Harris dropped on Friday, she had a line about Wing.
Brad was feeling it.
It’s a good thing Wing beat out Steve Weatherford for the punting job a few years ago. It’d be hard to squeeze his name into a bar.
