Meek Mill Opens Up On Relationship With Nicki Minaj, Had His Eye On Her For “Years”

(AllHipHop News) Meek Mill’s life with Nicki Minaj is a dream come true.

The rapper has been dating Nicki since early 2015, and the pair’s relationship is so strong they were even recently forced to deny claims of their engagement.

And in a new interview for the latest episode of the “Noisey Raps” documentary series, Meek has waxed lyrical about his girlfriend, admitting he can’t believe he lucked out in landing the “Anaconda” beauty.

“I wake up in my bed and I just look at Nicki like, ‘Man, this s##t has gotta be a dream because we used to dream all this s##t and it’s just going on right now,” he said in the footage. “I always seen it like this. I always seen it like me having one of the top hustling, prettiest girls in the game. That’s how my account was set up.”

One of the main reasons Meek and Nicki’s romance is such a success is because they both understand each other and their respective careers.

While Nicki is a hugely successful singer, Meek is also a popular Hip-Hop artist, and it’s this shared knowledge of the industry that Meek believes helps the couple connect.

“Where I come from. I can’t just be from the hood and have a total opposite girlfriend, she don’t know nothing about where I come from. She don’t understand me,” he explained. “Somebody that’ll understand me. Somebody that hustle. You know what I’m saying? Somebody that’s aggressive. These are things I like.”

Meek also revealed in the “Noisey Raps” episode he set his sights on the multimillionaire rapper many years ago. I In fact, his admiration for the singer was so strong that he even referenced her in many of his songs.

“I used to always tell my friends – I even got raps ‘such and such with Nicki.’ I always had it like that. That was someone I admired at the time,” he smiled.
