Meek Mill Opens Up to Angie Martinez [VIDEO]
Meek Mill Opens Up About Jail Saving His Life, His Relationship with Nicki and Plans to Help Save The Kids
If you haven’t heard, it’s Meek Season – and the man himself Meek Mill sat down with Power 105.1’s Angie Martinez for what could be his most in-depth interview to date.
Jumping right into serious stuff, Meek shared about how he was treated during his recent stint in jail. He acknowledged that he was locked up with his fans, but he for sure “got treated different from the inmates” because correctional officers made sure he got zero special treatment.
Why does Meek stay away from Philly? Here’s one reason…he can’t go back to his old hood because he gets in trouble for any little anything. However, he acknowledges that Philly is still fully supportive of him, since he “put in overtime” and “was connected to the people.”
Now for the good stuff…his very public relationship with the one and only Nicki Minaj. Meek got almost emotional, saying seeing Nicki in his bed “feels like a dream.” But don’t worry – no baby is on the way just yet, he was quick to shut down and laugh off pregnancy rumors.
Our girl Angie had to ask what it was like working in the studio with his girl on the ‘All Eyes On You’ track. Meek said it was like “World War III,” and they really only pushed to make the song happen because he “needed a radio song.”
Speaking of Nicki…remember when Nicki Minaj got deep with Angie Martinez after her breakup with Safaree Samuels? If not, check it here, but we had to know if Meek had seen it before because his name was dropped quite a few times!
In actuality, Nicki’s interview with Angie was early in her relationship with Meek, but it was under the radar. Meek says he and Nicki have watched it together “like 100 times.”
Let’s be honest – we’ve all seen Meek posting almost as many Insta-pics of him and Nicki. Why does it do it? Well, to please his woman of course! He said he does it because he knows she loves it, and to not have her out here looking crazy.
On a more serious note, Meek talked about Freddy Gray, and a photo he posted around the time of the case showing him being beat by the cops at 18 years old. He told Angie that these all-black officers falsely accused him of pointing a gun at another cop. Later, he saw one of them in a store, and the cop confronted Meek about possibly messing up his whole life, asking him to not do that to any other little kids.
“God is the only one that saved me, I was being caught up in trying to earn respect from people that don’t care about me…sitting in the cell, I said to myself I kinda needed this,” Meek reflected. “I’m really touching the people, most celebrities don’t want people to come near them…I can’t be the same.”
Meek’s making an effort to be positive for our kids’ future. He tells Angie Martinez that he wants to be the one who “helps save kids.”
“I can deliver the message to them. Dumb sh** don’t make you cool. That ain’t what life is about, I thought it was all about the hood. I come from a place where people die for $1,000 and now I’m in a place where people tip $1,000.00,” he said.
Meek also speaks out about how he sometimes agrees with Dame Dash, what’s up with Rick Ross’ arrest, his stance on LGBT rights, his new artists of choice (Hint: It’s not Kendrick or J.Cole), and getting solid advice from OG’s like Nas, Swizz Beatz and Jay Z.
