From his latest tour a whirlwind courtship with Nicki Minaj, there has been no shortage of Meek Mill headlines since the Philadelphia-bred rapper was released from jail in December 2014. In an exclusive Q&A with XXL magazine, Meek touched on losing his freedom for five months, and he was incredibly candid about his outlook on life once he regained his freedom.

“Me, really, I was confused, trying to be somebody in the street, make people in the streets look at me in a certain way, at the same time, I’m rapping,” Meek said. “But that ain’t what I do no more.”

Meek Mill shed light on his relationship with the judge who sentenced him as well as his probation officer, who both caught wind of previous incidents in an A$AP Rocky video, and an alleged confrontation at his house involving Chris Brown.

While Meek didn’t talk about his rumored engagement with Nicki Minaj, he did offer readers a glimpse into their relationship.

“I don’t really do things, but certain people make you do certain little stuff and it be like, ‘S**t, I don’t care,’” Meek added. “They can catch me in the pictures doing anything nowadays, holding an umbrella for Nicki, you know what I’m saying?”
