Meek Mill has had a rough year, but one of the bright spots has been his relationship with Nicki Minaj.
Recently the dyanamic duo was dubbed hip-hop's "hottest couple" by GQ. During their GQ photoshoot, GQ got in-depth with the couple and asked about Meek’s courting of Nicki, which apparently started during his stint in jail.
According to the interview, it seems as if the incident which sent Meek to jail sparked Nicki's feelings with the Philly native. Catch an excerpt from the interview below:
GQ: Nicki, when did you know you liked him more than just physical attraction?
NM: Um, oh, I remember. When he came to LA we had only been speaking about rap shit, talking about the Kendrick verse and stuff at that time.
NM: We shot a video and I think probably around that time I was like oh, he’s cool. In terms of taking him seriously and going to another level with him: when he went to jail I was left in a house by myself and it was just a tough time for me and it happened to be a tough time for him as well.
GQ: Why were you left in a house by yourself? What do you mean?
GQ: Complications with your ex boyfriend?
NM : Right. Yeah, it was weird and so at that time I was available. So I reached out to him letting him know…, It’s so funny that the day he went to jail, he was on my mind the day before.
MM: Basically she was feeling the kid before when I got booked.
NM: He was on my the day before because I saw him going off on twitter, and I was like oh man, he needs somebody to like make him feel good right now. So when I heard he went to jail I was really disappointed, I reached out to his people like yo, let him know I’m praying for him to come home. And they told him, and he asked them to call me for him. And it was like, I remember sitting on my balcony at my house and just being on the phone with him until it started getting dark outside. And I was just like yo, I’m in trouble. I just knew that first day, it was that long conversation. I was like uh-oh.
So I guess, Meek going to jail bought them together? This has to be a first in hip hop. With that being said, congrats to the happy couple, I wish them continued success!
