The female hip-hop star finally opened up about the nature of her relationship with the 27-year-old rapper Meek Mill.
Although Nicki Minaj only split with her rumoured boyfriend of 14 years Safaree Samuels earlier this year, many reports have claimed that the 32-year-old star has already moved on with Philadelphia-born rapper Meek Mill.
Minaj has been rumoured to be dating Meek Mill
The pair have further fuelled speculation that they are a couple after posting several snaps of themselves on Instagram looking very comfortable with one another, and the hip-hop duo were also seen together enjoying the NBA All-Star Weekend in NYC.
Oh. My. God. Look at her... new album?
Ok, before you read this article, we have to agree on one thing: this is a no Nicki Minaj hate zone. That means that you have to read it with an open mind and hopefully appreciate the majesty that is Nicki Minaj’s hair, music, makeup... everything, really.
Minaj performed three songs in all: 'Bed Of Lies' with Skylar Grey and a medley of 'Only' and 'All Things Go'. Through the magic of the internet, you can now watch all of those online. Somewhere. Not here because, you know. Copyright is a thing. NME has clips of the whole thing, though. Don’t say we never did anything for you.
Um... excuse you?

A named, 36-yer-old man is wanted by police in connection to the murder of the 18-year-old
Earlier this week, 18-year-old rapper Lil Snupe was shot down in the small Lousiana town of Winnfield on Thursday (June 20) in the early hours of the morning. At the time, police were left stumped as to why the crime happened and who could be behind it, but now it looks as though the cops have a lead and are said to be searching for a man in his mid-thirties in connection with the crime.
Lousiana police have issued a report saying they are searching for a 36-year-old man who they believe shot and killed the protégé of rapper Meek Mill following an argument over video games earlier in the week. The man, named Tony Holden, has a warrant out on his name, but police have so far been unable to locate him yet. The police report went on to say that Holden is a violent man and a former convict and should not be approached by members of the public.
Lil Snupe, real name Addarren Ross, had only just signed to Meek Mill’s Dream Chasers Records earlier this year having passed on a demo tape to the rapper at a university gig. Immediately impressed with what he heard, Meek took him under his wing and signed him to his label, with Snupe releasing his first mixtape soon after. Noted for his lethal freestyles, Snupe was beginning to make a name for himself in the rap game and looked to have a bring future ahead of him, making the shooting all the more distressing.

Meek Mill's hiphop protégé, Lil Snupe, was shot dead in Winnfield, LA early yesterday (20th June).
Only weeks after rapper 2 Chainz was robbed at gunpoint in California, the rap world has been hit with another guncrime - but this time the 18 year-old victim didn't escape with his life. Rising rapstar Lil Snupe was killed by shots to his torso at around 4am on Thursday (June 20) morning and was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.
Details are beginning to slowly emerge of the teenager's untimely death. Neither motives nor the relevancy of the location are known: "A motive has not been established at this time," LAPD told MTV, adding that an investigation has been opened and was under way.
The talented Lil Snupe, born Addarren Ross, was signed up to Meek Mill's Dream Chasers label almost straight away after he passed on a demo tape to the 26 year-old hiphopster at a university gig in Louisiana in late 2012. Meek Mill, AKA Robert Williams, was immediately impressed by the youngster's talent and signed him up, also taking him under his wing as his protégé.

The rapper was shot early in the morning, possibly in Louisiana.
The entertainment industry has apparently become a high risk business lately, as 18-year-old rapper Lil’ Snoop, who just got signed to Meek Mill’s label Dream Chasers last year, has been killed. Lil Snoop was shot and killed this morning (June 20), according to multiple sources, including AllHipHop and XXL. No details have been released about the location or exact time of the incident. Lil’ Snoop was at the very beginning of his career, having just released his first mixtape with Dream Chasers. You can hear some of the tracks below.
It was reportedly his mixtape that initially impressed Meek Mill into taking on Lil’ Snoop as his protégé. The budding rapper told his unlikely success story to MTV last February: "He was in a van, they was finna pull off. And I went and knocked on the van, on the window. They let the window down, grabbed the mixtape and it was like 10 minutes later, 20 minutes later they called me," he said.

Rapper says hip-hop's narrative and reality are different
The hip-hop world is at times a bewildering place, somewhere where boundaries are routinely crossed in thematic content with the loose justification being that these MCs are telling real stories and portraying real situations. Situations that they seem to be pretty into. Meek Mill was being asked about Rick Ross, hip-hop and the social responsibility it bore given it’s huge profile by Urban Informer, and he said "I don't even care about nobody criticizing no lyrics.” He continued "People rap about killing stuff all day. Biggie said, 'Rape your kid. Throw her over the bridge.' It was nothing, it's just hip-hop."
He did indeed say that, with Spin pointing out that Mills was saying it was all part of B.I.G’s narrative, which it may have been. However it then goes on to point out Ross’ lyrics, which say “Put molly in her champagne, she ain't even know it / I took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain't even know it” and are said pretty straight, with very little in the way of narration around it. What does all this tell us? We don’t even know, but rap’s got some serious issues and the most depressing thing is that it’s become such the norm in the genre that it’ll never be fixed.
