Ghostface Killah recently reunited with Nia Long.

The Wu-Tang Clan rapper shared a photo of them embracing on his Instagram on Thursday, writing, “My Old Crush gave me a Hug .... shout out to @iamnialong.”

The Staten Island native has held a candle for Nia for some time, openly crushing on her on Twitter a few years ago.

He’s also long referenced the actress in his songs, most notably on his 2001 Bulletproof Wallets cut, “The Hilton,” where he raps, “Glittered out, stout face, tec, Rae up in the Hilton/ Heard Nia Long is in the building.”

He also namedrops her on the 2000 Supreme Clientele interlude, “Who Would You Fuck,” where he can be heard having a conversation about who he’d rather be intimate with: Nia or Halle Berry.

“Nia or Halle Berry, though? Yeah, now you talkin’ ’bout some primetime!” he says.

Nia was at the center of Ime Udoka’s cheating scandal for months, after news broke last September that he cheated on her and had an affair with a staff member of the Boston Celtics. In April, it seemed like Nia finally came out the other side when she shared a message on her IG that read: “The best revenge is no revenge. Move on. Be happy.”
