The public became aware that Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill officially ended their relationship in January when the raptress tweeted, “To confirm, yes I am single.”
The fallout from the break up caused the former couple to send subliminal shots at each other on social media as well as Meek rapping about his ex on his new album Wins & Losses.
Their respective fan bases have also expressed thoughts on the situation via social media.
During an interview with the Associated Press, Meek was asked about the attention and criticism he received from dating Nicki.
“I’ll look at the Internet and see comments like, ‘Meek got Nicki money.’ You can’t know nothing about Meek Mill if you saying something like that,” stated the “1942 Flows” rhymer.
He continued, “They be like ‘Meek Mill can’t rap.’… ‘Somebody wrote Meek Mill raps’. … I came up on YouTube rapping since I was 14 years old. That’s my importance to the streets. They seen me come up. My story is not a facade.”
