Who’s Meek Mill? Billboard finds out.
The 28 year old rapper is getting some major attention with his second album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, being a brand ambassador for Puma and his gaming app– OH WAIT, let’s be real. He dates Nicki Minaj and has a huge beef with Drake. So what’s he all about? Here are some highlights from the interview:
On not having privacy: “You want to be private with your girl once in a while,” says Meek. “I would love to be able to just walk down the street by ourselves.”
On people wanting to expose him: “Say my mom took a picture of me with no shirt on,” he says. “I’m skinny — I got a little bird chest and a fat stomach. I can’t really tell my mom not to take that picture, that I’m not trying to have that type of look in the streets.”
On being political: “I’m scared to be political,” he says. “You get too powerful and more people try to take you out. My son ain’t trying to hear that his dad got put away because he was fighting for the country.”
On being a rapper with a girlfriend: “You can’t be hard all the time, man,” he says of critics — such as rapper Joe Budden and, now, Drake — who suggest his romance is at odds with his hard-edged music. “There’s both sides to everything. What’s wrong with it? Jay Z was a street rapper and he had a girlfriend.”
