(AllHipHop News) A chart topping album and plenty of controversy have made Meek Mill a trending topic in the media for the last few weeks. Prior to the breakout of the current feud with Drake, Meek Mill spoke with Billboard about his career and relationship with superstar rapper Nicki Minaj.

However, the conversation did come after Meek’s short conflict with Joe Budden. The Slaughterhouse member made fun of the public interaction between Meek and Nicki during his podcast earlier this month.
“You can’t be hard all the time, man,” said Meek about Budden’s critique. “There’s both sides to everything. What’s wrong with it? Jay Z was a street rapper and he had a girlfriend.”
The Maybach Music Group artist may be fine opening up about his girlfriend, but Meek admitted he is hesitant to use his platform to address political issues. While his peers Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole have embraced voicing their opinions on relevant societal topics, Meek sees the action as possibly being harmful to him and his family.
“I’m scared to be political,” stated Meek. “You get too powerful and more people try to take you out. My son ain’t trying to hear that his dad got put away because he was fighting for the country.”
The “All Eyes On You” performer also made another confession. Meek spoke about his particular style of rap and its value to the culture.
“I’m not the best person at putting words together. I can’t give you the melody,” Meek added. “But I might inspire somebody.”
