Meek Mill: “Rick Ross Changed My Life...”
Meek Mill recently spoke with Rap-Up TV to clear up some of the rumours that are bound to surface when your mixtape is downloaded over 2,000,000 times! The 25-year-old, who just dropped his 'Dreamchasers 2' mixtape, revealed that he has a girl at home and insisted that the recent rumours romantically linking him to Rihanna are totally untrue...
He said of the rumour: "That s**t f*****d up my life a little bit. [Rihanna] might have been at the same place as me, but that don’t mean we was together. She a cool person, I met her before, she like my music, and that’s that."
The Maybach Music Group member also revealed what we can expect from his forthcoming debut album, 'Dreams & Nightmares', saying that he will be showcasing the negative and the positive sides of his life, as the title suggests: "I’ma give you the nightmare side, coming up in the streets and actually being in jail, to the dream side of being on tour with Drake and 2 Chainz and Waka Flocka and traveling the world."
Although his album will be released with MMG, the MC explained that he has made connections with some very powerful people in the music industry, telling Life+Times: "I've got Warner Bros behind me, Maybach Music Group, and Roc Nation; some of the most powerful people in the game. That's like 80% of the game right there. You know, Cash Money, they like family. So it's like you've got everyone on your team at one time, and it feels good to have all that behind you at once. It's like a force that can't be stopped."
However, the seventh Hottest MC In The Game admitted that his loyalty will always lie with Rick Ross: "I look at Ross like my old head. My dad died when I was young. I never really had an older person in my life that really looked out for me. [Ross] helped change my life—took my music to another level, so it took my money and my family to another level."
