Meek Mill Calls Drake Beef a Win, Nicki Minaj Breakup a Loss
During an interview with Power 99, the Philly rapper shared his take on whether he won in the Drizzy feud. “That’s a win,” he explained. “It’s always a win. There was a lot of people around me before that. They thought it slowed down a little bit. I’m spending cake on these dudes left and right. We going 5-star everything. Foreign everything. The minute it looked like it slowed down, I was in the studio with 3-4 people. Had to hustle and get it back, so I needed to remove them. I won.
“I won the whole situation,” he added. “It made me into a monster. They put my back against the wall…It helped me turn into the next level. I was too comfortable. I had Nicki. I’m getting all this money, living in Beverly Hills, getting high. There was nothing else I wanted, at that point. Now, it’s time to get this money. What the hell was you doing, ni**a? Real talk. Now, I’ma show you what I’m doing. I’ma show you who Meek Mill is.”
Mill also said he won by dating Nicki Minaj, who reportedly broke up with him last year. “It was a win,” he explained. “I always wanted Nicki my whole life. I used to talk [about it]. I had to rap about it. I bagged that. That was a win, of course.”
When asked if it was a loss to breakup with her, he acknowledged that L. “Yeah, breaking up with anybody you love is a loss,” he said.
Another Meek foe that came up during the interview was Trick Daddy, who recently bashed him on social media for claiming to have influence on Miami.
“I come from Philadelphia,” said Mill. “Our O.G.’s don’t get on Instagram, where we from. If they want to say something to someone, they get in contact and they say it, especially if it’s on that level of anger. I worked hard on this album. I don’t think you should be able to go on Instagram and just rant and go crazy and be mentioned in an interview. This is about Wins & Losses…I ain’t really trying to talk about negativity. All I’ll say is that everybody in the industry knows there’s only one way to handle Meek Mill when you see him.”
Meek’s Wins & Losses is on pace to sell between 90,000 and 95,000 equivalent album units in its first week of availability, and is vying for the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 against Tyler, the Creator’s Flower Boy and Lana Del Rey’s Lust for Life.
