In a recent interview with Billboard, Meek Mill (real name Robert Williams) opens up about why he stays away from using his platform for politics; why he misses his privacy and how he doesn’t mind if his girlfriend (Nicki Minaj) murders him lyrically. Peep a few excerpts.
Missing his privacy:
You want to be private with your girl once in a while. I would love to be able to just walk down the street by ourselves.
His rap delivery:
I’m not the best person at putting words together. I can’t give you the melody. But I might inspire somebody.
Nicki insisting he do ‘All Eyes on You’:
She wanted it to be my single, and I didn’t. It turned into an ego argument.
Not feeling threatened by Minaj’s success:
She killed me on that song, but I don’t really care. When my girl do better than me, I still win. When I do better than her, she still wins.

She wasn’t my girl then, but now she wouldn’t even had did that.
Recalling an incident, that happened at 18, where he claims he was beaten by Philly police:
[I had] a concussion, stitches, braids ripped out. My blood was on the ceiling, on the floor.
Returning to jail for five months (in 2014) and spending most of his time in solitary confinement:
Imagine being locked in your bathroom 23 hours a day. That’s the closest I ever came to losing my mind. You’re talking to yourself, playing games with the birds in the window. It’s hell.
Why he stays away from politics:
I’m scared to be political. 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.
