Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj's relationshipseems to be getting stronger by the day, and the new power couple recently sat down for an interview with GQ to discuss how they met, addressing their haters, and more. While they touched on topics like if Meek has to ask Nicki permission to kiss her, or if anyone objected to them dating, the real eye opening tidbit revolves around how they were first brought together over Kendrick Lamar's "Control" verse.

"Um, oh, I remember. When he came to LA we had only been speaking about rap shit, talking about the Kendrick verse and stuff at that time," Nicki said. "She was telling me to bomb everybody," Meek replied. Relationship goals.

Of course, Meek did end up replying to Kendrick, so it seems that Nicki and Meek were just meant to be. "Shut up. I was just telling him to be confident as an artist because I liked his music, etc," Nicki later said. Meek also seems to have addressed that Drake diss in a pretty lowkey way when he spoke about why he's so attracted to Nicki in the first place. "People don't really have a girlfriends that's doing more than them or the same thing," he said. "I like girls that hustle. She a boss. She's pretty as fuck. Bad as shit. Ambitious. What else do you want?"
