The opening line of a track on Nicki Minaj‘s new album, The Pinkprint, may have aroused a former NBA player.

Metta World Peace (born Ron Artest) took to Twitter around 4 a.m. today (December 26), to express how overjoyed he was to be mentioned on “the hottest female rapper’s song.”

“Honestly, I can’t sleep because the hottest female rapper put me in her song,” he wrote. “I bragged to my girlfriend about it. Lol. Ok. Goodnight.”

Metta may be referring to Nicki Minaj’s lyrics on “Trini Dem Girls.”

Minaj begins the song by rapping: “He in love with a ghetto girl, he said he want a piece like Metta World.”

This isn’t the first time a rapper has dropped Metta’s name in a rhyme. Pharrell, Rick Ross, Meek Mill and others have used his name in their songs.
