Young Money‘s Nicki Minaj has pulled through on her promise to deliver a must-hear interview. The hip-hop diva has appeared on Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio to address a slew of topics.

In her chat with radio host Zane Lowe, Onika addressed being caught in-between the now-defunct feud between ex-boyfriend Meek Mill and Young Money labelmate Drake.

“It was one of the hardest parts of my career to date – ever,” Nicki said when asked about getting stuck in-between the 2015 feud. “At the time, I did love both of them. I couldn’t erase the love I had for my team. But I also couldn’t speak out. I couldn’t really say much.” (Beats 1)

Minaj went a little further to talk about Meek’s publicized jail situation on a probation violation.

“You know what, I don’t want to talk about legal things but I will say you know, every now and then, anyway, I won’t go there. I’ll save some of those things for my album and I’m also shooting a documentary. What I will say now is – oh God – I will say that the judge in question did everything I asked of her. I can’t badmouth her because I met her personally and I know what she said to us and he knows that but of course I wouldn’t wish jail on anybody. But like I said, I’ll get into detail on that in the documentary and possibly on the album but what I will say made me shed tears was seeing his mother cry. That was the first time I was like, ‘Oh my God, I can’t take it.’ During the relationship, she was so sweet to me and even at the end when we both kinda knew it was too rocky, too bad to – she always, always showed me so much love. So I still care about her. I didn’t like seeing her cry the other day.” (Beats 1)



According to reports, Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney pulled through this week to visit Meek.

Sources at the prison tell us Kenney was spotted leaving the facility Wednesday morning with 76ers owner Michael Rubin, who’s visited several times before… including Tuesday when he brought Patriots owner Robert Kraft to visit the incarcerated rapper. According to the Mayor’s spokeswoman … Rubin invited Mayor Kenney, and the visit with Meek lasted about an hour. We’re told Hizzoner believes the rapper could better serve the community outside prison. (TMZ)

A few hours prior, MMG’s Wale revealed he had a personal conversation with Meek Milly.

This week, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft talked about meeting Meek during his stint behind bars.

“He’s an amazing young ma. I know how I’d feel if I were in the situation he is in. He’s very intelligent. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know him over the last two to three years, maybe even longer. Every time I see him, I just come away more impressed – it makes it clear to me we have to do something with criminal justice reform. This kind of case, to be in a situation like this, it’s really bad. It’s just wrong and we have to find a way to correct it and also help the community help themselves. This is just sad. This guy is a great guy and shouldn’t be here.” (CBS Philly)
