Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj have found a friend in ‘GQ’ magazine.

Keen to push their relationship to the forefront of their respective brands the couple posed for snaps shot by Ellen Von Un Werth after hitting the road for Minaj’s ‘The Pinkprint Tour.’

Hit the link below for Minaj as you’ve never seen or heard her before.

On their relationship Minaj shared:
I definitely think we have a normal relationship off camera. We’re like any other couple in the hood. We’re growing as a couple and as people and as human beings but we still have our careers, and I think probably the only thing that makes it un-normal is that we’re both successful artists, and that’s probably not normal. But other than that our feelings are very normal. Like if I were to speak to a hundred girls right now about what they go through with their boyfriend we’d probably have stuff in common.

You know we were just figuring each other out. We liked each other. We were into each other. Once we learned how to understand each other, it was curtain closed. Everything was a go.

People tell me all the time, it takes a special kind of man to be with a woman who has her own, and it takes a special kind of man to not feel insecure by a woman who is doing her own thing. You know? So, one of the things that made me want to be with him is we spent so much time talking, and he always made me feel like he was ok with me being me. As an artist and just as a woman. Obviously I’m a strong woman in a lot of ways… I’m not a strong woman in every way, I don’t want to make it seem like I am some superhero because I’m not, but I do know that it takes a certain kind of guy. And time will tell if Meek is that kind of guy, because it’s definitely not easy.

GQ then asked Meek to reveal what drew him to Nicki when they first met.
Read what happened below….
NM: What was your secret baby? Everybody wants to know that.

MM: I don’t know though! Yall want me to make up a magazine answer? I liked her. I felt her. I guess she felt me.

NM: What’d you like about me?

MM: That you was a hustler. That you were doing your thing. A lot of people coming up. People don’t really have a girlfriends that’s doing more than them or the same thing. I like girls that hustle. She a boss. She’s pretty as f***. Bad as s***. Ambitious. What else do you want?

GQ: Both of you guys have very close circles of friends and family. Was there anyone who objected to you guys dating?
MM: Not on my side.

NM: Everyone professionally [was on board]. The only person was my mother. My mother only knows Meek from what she sees in public, in the media. She met him now, but she just wants to make sure he’s a nice guy. She’s overprotective of her daughter. Another thing people don’t realize is I’ve only had three boyfriends in my whole life. I’ve never dated around… I don’t have a whole lot of experience in that department so my mother and my family were very like what? This is a big step, because they’ve only known one thing for over a decade. Even my pastor, who’s like a second mother, was scared. Everybody was just scared. Those women were scared for me because when I love someone I really let them in, and I really let me guard down, and I think it’s only natural for a mother to just you know, she just wanted to make sure I wasn’t rushing into anything.

GQ: When did the courting start? Not the relationship… the courting.
MM: About a year ago or something like that? I can’t say for sure. Maybe a year and change.

[Nicki play-slaps Meek]

GQ: Nicki, when did you know you liked him more than just physical attraction?
NM: 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. And I was just like yeahhh you need to do this, you need to that…

MM: She was telling me to bomb everybody.

NM: Shut up. I was just telling him to be confident as an artist because I liked his music, etc. And then he came down to LA and we went to the studio and after that I didn’t see him for a very long time. We shot a video and I think probably around that time I was like oh, he’s cool. In terms of taking him seriously and going to another level with him: when he went to jail I was left in a house by myself and it was just a tough time for me and it happened to be a tough time for him as well.

GQ: Why were you left in a house by yourself? What do you mean?

NM: Ummm….

GQ: Complications with your ex boyfriend?
NM : Right. Yeah, it was weird and so at that time I was available. So I reached out to him letting him know…, It’s so funny that the day he went to jail, he was on my mind the day before.

MM: Basically she was feeling the kid before when I got booked.

NM: He was on my the day before because I saw him going off on twitter, and I was like oh man, he needs somebody to like make him feel good right now. So when I heard he went to jail I was really disappointed, I reached out to his people like yo, let him know I’m praying for him to come home. And they told him, and he asked them to call me for him. And it was like, I remember sitting on my balcony at my house and just being on the phone with him until it started getting dark outside. And I was just like yo, I’m in trouble. I just knew that first day, it was that long conversation. I was like uh-oh.

GQ: So you basically got most people’s dream girl from jail Meek… You sure you don’t want to tell us that secret?
MM: No, just keep it real. Keep it real with yourself and great things will happen. When keeping it real goes right that’s what we call it.

NM: We just spent so much time talking that I had such a strong mental connection. It was insane. We got so close.

GQ: What’s the most common misconception about Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj?
NM: Together, I think one of the biggest misconceptions at the beginning was that people thought that me and him just popped up out of the blue and were just in a relationship. We were friends for a very long time and he was someone that I was able to really confide in. Nothing that we do is for TV. My decision to be public about my relationship came before I even met Meek. I was in another relationship and I said after I drop my third album that I don’t care anymore what people think, I’m going to be vocal about who I’m with. It just so happens that I’m with a new guy. When I came in the business, you couldn’t tell people you were in a relationship, because record company and management said that doesn’t make you appealing to men. So don’t tell people you’re in a relationship. So after you do that for ten years it becomes something you feel like you have to do. It’s difficult to break out of that box. So I just vowed to myself look, I’m about to put out a new album, I don’t care anymore. It just so happens I’m in a new relationship but I was planning on doing that before I was with Meek. Because now it’s to the point where it’s different now. The music industry is so different. People don’t care if you’re in a relationship, but in the beginning it wasn’t like that. Take Janet Jackson, people didn’t know she was married for nine years or something like that. It was a taboo thing in the beginning. I didn’t want to hide that side of my life anymore.

MM: That we were faking. That was crazy to me. I’ve never been known for stunts in public that make me look better, you know what I’m saying.

NM: But also, the boy has been tweeting about me for how long?

MM: Five years!

NM: Right.

    I have heard that record labels do not want you to promote your relationship because of the female artist being new and promoting s3x.
    But she’s still a THOT though. What kind of woman jumps on every guy but never her own boyfriend? SMH

  5. Drive by Comments September 22, 2015

    This is a non post try harder daivdtina

  6. Lmfao_Hoe September 22, 2015

    This is bs as she had no problem riding Drake d*** and that stunt they pulled years ago about getting married. I’m starting to see what Lil Kim was talking about. Everything in the dark will come to light. I mean it wasn’t hard for anyone to know Bey was dating Jay thru the early 00s, Ashanti and ja Rule, Usher and Chilli, and Chris with Riri.

    • Lake Erie September 22, 2015

      Meek was caught off guard by that question lol. He know he had to think of something and Nicki was on it, Boarder line had to pull teeth to get it out of him like: “What’d you like about me?” Smh idc for her that much but at the end of the day, Noone deserves to be used.

    • Lake Erie September 22, 2015

      My bad, wrong reply box.

  8. What now September 22, 2015

    IMO Young Money wanted the fresh Nicki Minaj 2 b single & bought her hour glass frame (no shade) 2 make sure dudes wanted her; then dey played up her possibility of bisexuality & created her Barbie persona/alters just 2 make girls want 2 look like & want her. Wat they did worked bc her debut album success hasn’t been seen since Kim/Lauryn. This & this Meek Mill relationship iz A&R 101. I generally like Nicki, but I gotta keep it and call it like it iz. Sorry.

  9. Kitty Puurrzz September 22, 2015

    No shade … But Iggy & Nick beeeeennnn did a GQ shoot but hey … Kudos to Nicki lol

  10. Gee September 22, 2015

    Something about these two and their relationship still feels staged to me. But I wish them the best though.

  11. #JACKIE September 22, 2015

    Who cares about this fake low budget ghetto publicity stunting ass couple? Meek looks like a burnt possum and Nicki looks like my first blow up doll. Two ugly ratchet attention seekers a match made in heaven 🙂 <3

  12. Gee September 22, 2015

    I still don’t respect Nicki for hiding her decade old relationship but she was willing to claim the break up. Just me personally.

  13. Fancy BISH September 22, 2015

    “And time will tell if Meeka is that kind of guy, because it’s definitely not easy.” -Nicki Minaj

    I corrected Meeka’s name lol 🙂
