Nicki Minaj says leaked song is not about slain cousin

Nicki Minaj has dismissed rumors that she paid tribute to her slain cousin in a new song, saying the leaked track was recorded "over a year ago."

Minaj's cousin Nicholas Telemaque, 27, was shot dead in the early hours of Monday after leaving a club in his native Brooklyn.

Minaj took to Twitter to share her grief with fans following the news of his death, calling him "my precious cousin," "my baby."

An emotional track titled "We Miss You," about the death of a loved one, surfaced on the Internet on Thursday, prompting reports that she had laid bare her feelings about him in the tune, which features the lyrics "You said that you would leave these streets, and I know you didn't mean in a body bag/But now we see you were not bulletproof, and I'm mad 'cause you were the best that I ever had."

The singer says it's an old track that didn't make the final cut for her 2010 debut album, "Pink Friday."

Returning to Twitter on Thursday, she wrote, "Tho the lyrics of We Miss You eerily depict the circumstances surrounding my cousin's death, I wrote & recorded that song on 5/24/2010.

"It was sent to Mariah Carey & Keyshia Cole over a year ago for a possible feature. It didn't make Pink Friday due to clearance issues. Its an unauthorized leak."

Minaj goes on to thank fans for their continued support as she mourns her cousin's death, adding, "Thank u ALL for your kind words and well wishes. Love."

New York police have launched an investigation into Telemaque's death but have yet to make any arrests.
