Meek Mill stopped by Power 99 in Philly to discuss his new album ‘Wins & Losses’ and how Drizzy and Minaj rank according to his scorekeeping. The South Philly rapper revealed to the station that first put him on that losing Minaj was definitely an L, and the Drake beef was a certified win, despite the Twitterverse mercilessly insisting he got bodied by the 6ix god.

Meek reflects on transforming after taking the hit from the ‘Back to Back’ rapper, and that the beef made him hungrier, leaner, and more careful in selecting the crew around him during his come-up.
“That’s a win, it’s always a win. There was a lot of people around me before that. They thought it slowed down a little bit. I’m spending cake on these dudes left and right. We going 5-star everything. Foreign everything. The minute it looked like it slowed down, I was in the studio with 3-4 people. Had to hustle and get it back, so I needed to remove them. I won. I won the whole situation,” he revealed.
“It made me into a monster. They put my back against the wall…It helped me turn into the next level. I was too comfortable. I had Nicki. I’m getting all this money, living in Beverly Hills, getting high. There was nothing else I wanted, at that point. Now, it’s time to get this money. What the hell was you doing, ni**a? Real talk. Now, I’ma show you what I’m doing. I’ma show you who Meek Mill is.”
Power 99’s Cosmic Kev then questioned the rapper over his split with the none-protested current “Queen of Rap,” whose features and solo tracks have sold a combined 80 mil worldwide, Nicki Minaj. Meek revealed that his 2-year relationship with Minaj was both a win and a loss, and that there’s nothing but love left for his ex now that the dust has settled.
“Of course, breaking up with anyone you love is a loss. Period. Game time. Ya heard? You want me to get up here and make up a lie or something, Kev? It’s so easy to tell the truth now. But nobody can believe that interview is going so smooth, because it’s just so easy to tell the truth and kick that talk, because we living it. And this is what we’re representing. A lot of people, it became a little trend to try to hate Meek Mill; I don’t know what they was thinking. It comes with being a threat; it comes with being a threat,” he explained. “I watch it time and time and over with good playas.”
Regardless of what’s in the past, Meek has been more focused than ever in the lab with ‘Wins & Losses’ on track for the no. 1 spot on the Billboard 200.
