Nicki Minaj paid a visit to Power 105.1 to chop it up with the Voice of New York Angie Martinez. During their sit down, she spoke about her rumored beau Meek Mill, who appears twice on her latest album The Pinkprint. She didn’t address whether their relationship was more than platonic, but she did compare him to DMX.
“I think he’s amazing,” said the head Barb. “I love what he represents for dudes that think like him and act like him and live like him. I told him before, like ‘you’re so important to our culture.’ We always need that type of guy, like DMX. When I was growing up I needed to see a dude act like that.”
The Queens rapstress also opened up about her recent breakup with her longtime boyfriend Safaree Samuels, which led to her shedding tears and having to go off camera.
“My relationship was based off of love and there’s still nothing but love there. This is somebody I grew up with, like I don’t even know how I’ going to function without this person in my life. I’ve never lived my life as a famous person without him.”
When she said that sometimes she still wants to pick up the phone and call him, she got emotional.
Press play to watch.
