While promoting his new album, Championships, Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill joined music streaming service Tidal to hold an exclusive interview with Elliot Wilson about his latest body of work. Between discussing his musical journey, time behind bars and future in the game, the “What’s Free” MC shared the story of a double date with ex Nicki Minaj and music supercouple, Beyoncé and JAY-Z.
During his beef with Drake, Meek shared that the Carters invited him and Minaj out for dinner, which turned awkward when Hov’s playlist landed on Drizzy’s diss record aimed at him, “Back to Back.”
“I was with Nicki and sh*t. Hov and Beyoncé like, ‘come out and eat with us.’ I’m from the hood, I’m like, ‘Damn. I’m about to double date with Hov and Beyoncé right now, this sh*t is incredible.’ Man, we get up in this jawn, so Hov got the playlist, he just clicking through sh*t, he clickin’ through, ‘Back to Back’ come on by mistake while we at the table. I’m like, ‘Oh, sh*t!’”
He continued, “So, Beyoncé and Hov and Nicki everybody just lookin’ like they don’t know what the f*ck is going on. I gotta take a sh*t now. I’m like, what the f*ck. I don’t even know if they remember that, but sh*t I remember that.”
