Meek Mill, who was freed two weeks ago following a widely criticized prison sentence, joined the Breakfast Club team Thursday morning to talk about a number of topics, including Nicki Minaj speaking on his case.
In April, Minaj told Zane Lowe that, while she wouldn't wish jail on anybody, she didn't want to talk negative about Judge Genece Brinkley, who, according to Mill's team, made several bizarre requests and went out of her way to keep the rapper in jail. “I will say that the judge in question did everything I asked of her," Minaj said. "So, I can’t bad-mouth her because I met her personally, and I know what she said to us. And he knows that, and I know that.”
Mill told Breakfast Club, "I wasn't feeling that. She shouldn't had said nothing. And we leave it at that. I don't feel no way. She know I wasn't feeling that."
He also talked about his upcoming music plans and the continuation of the conversation the #FreeMeek movement started.
"I'm representing a cause, I got a purpose for something but still, at the same time, I gotta be Meek Mill," Mill, around the 21-minute mark in the video up top, explained of his current position. When Charlamagne asked if his recent experiences would push him toward J. Cole-esque lyrical content, Mill confirmed that it would not. "No, I can't be J. Cole," he said. "J. Cole is J. Cole. I tell people, my music, I might start talking hurt. I might talk anger. Like, when 2Pac was like, 'America eat its babies.' Y'all gonna make me go crazy . . . It's them thoughts still deep inside, because you've got to be angry if you been sent to prison four or five times."
Later, around the 49-minute mark, Angela Yee asked Mill about his plans for new music. "Actually I'm jumping in the studio immediately," Mill said, adding that he hasn't rapped in eight months. "I just been getting hungry and building my hunger up so when I go into the studio, I lay 20, 30 songs down in two weeks. It ain't gonna be long before I start going off."
Mill also talked opioid addiction, criminal justice reform, T.I.'s advice, and more. Catch the full interview up top.
