Meek Mill breaks his silence.
The MMG spitter has been quiet in interviews following his highly-publicized Drake beef and his legal woes, but he’s finally opening up. In an interview with MyMixtapez, the Philly spitter discussed everything from Nicki Minaj to taking an “L” in his beef with the 6 God.
“When I see an L, that’s what I think about the most,” he explained. “I learned a lot from watching these ni**as that I did a lot for in this industry. I used to always hear people say, ‘This industry’s fake. These ni**as is fake.’ I tried to come in with the real ni**a approach to try to change them, but it’s too many against one.”
Find out the advice he received from Jay Z after the Drake feud and more highlights from the convo below.
ON DRAKE BEEF: “I remember last year, watching people, everybody going against me about a diss record. I remember looking at it like, ‘Y’all really think this gon’ stop me? You think telling me I’m going on my girlfriend’s tour is gon’ stop me? Is that a joke?’”
ON NICKI MINAJ: “I thought that was live for me to have a girl that get more money than me, that do a bigger tour that me. I thought that was actually dope, to wake up, go on stage with your girl, make some money, have some good loving at the end of the night. That’s some live shit.”
ON JAY Z’S ADVICE: “I was talking to Jay. He was like, ‘Don’t be going on the Internet arguing with them. You can’t win. There’s too many against one. Don’t even try it.’”
ON DROPPING NEW MUSIC: “I’ve been going through real things. I like to take my time. Me? I never let fans determine when I drop my music. I never moved off the word of a fan. People can’t just tell me ‘Drop music tomorrow.’ I don’t do it like that. I move on my own timing.”
ON POSITIVITY: “I don’t want to always touch on violence all the time. I want to give a message to the young kids: get some money, take care of your family. Growing up, ‘gangsta’ to me was, you had to be robbing, you had to be killing, you had to do a lot of stuff. My new definition of ‘gangsta’ is go get your mom a house.”
ON FATHERHOOD: “My son is five years old. He goes to a great school. It amazes me to see my son be able to speak French. I actually got that from Jay Z. I was on a plane with Jay Z one day and he was on FaceTime with his daughter and she was two years old. She was speaking Spanish. To me, I thought that was stuntin’. I was like, ‘That’s just stuntin’ on a whole different type of level.’ The moment I went home, I called up my son’s mom like, ‘We gotta find a new school, a higher level.’ That’s stuntin’.”
