Me and Meek could never beef, I freed that n-gga from a whole bid, Hov did, he raps on the song. Next time we have a discussion who the G.O.A.T., you donkeys know this. JAY-Z previously wrote an op-ed for The New York Times about Meeks imprisonment and also spent millions of dollars on his legal fees. JAY-Z is actually responsible for some of my legal fees, Meek told The Breakfast Club in 2018. Which I thought was the dopest in the world because it was some millions of dollars. I dont even think I could have afforded it. When news first broke about him leaving Roc Nation, Meek Mill assured fans there were no issues and that he still had other partnerships with JAY-Z. All I seen today was meek and roc part ways, he wrote on Twitter. Im personally handling my own business so I can take risk and grow ..we came to that agreement together..I have a label deal with roc for my artist and I got reform super tied with them and many other investments wit jigga.

During a 2019 interview with Business Insider, Meek Mill explained how JAY-Z changed his perspective on business. Hes just a different type of guy, he said at the time. Hes about his business. Hes never late, hes on point. Hes checking on his business every chance he gets. Basically, Ive seen JAY-Z, and then Ive watched other artists who came up around his time. He actually built something. He built businesses, and he built things that made him become the man who he is, that we could call a billionaire guy. He built that, and I watched that, and I studied that. Thats why Im working the way Im working now to build a foundation for myself too. Subscribe to DX Newsletter
