During a less-simple time when Meek Mill and Drake were at odds, the Dreamchasers boss was just beginning to link in pretty tight with music’s iconic Carter power couple dually known as Beyoncé and Jay-Z alongside his then-girlfriend and femcee megastar, Nicki Minaj.
Somewhere between flicking it up backstage at boxing matches and his new Championships Hov feature, the Dreamchasers boss also shared a dinner table with him over a celeb double-date situation of sorts. As an excited Meek clinked glasses with Bey, Nicki and the Brooklyn hip-hop icon, all seemed to have went well that evening—or at least up until Hov accidentally hit play on a Drizzy song that dropped a huge, awkward elephant in the room.
Meek explained it was his first formal elbow-bumping with Jay, and he was dating Nicki at the time. Mr. and Mrs. Carter extended an invite to the couple to eat dinner with them. It goes without saying that they immediately accepted, he recalled. “Man, we get up in this joint and Hov got the playlist, he just clicking through sh**,” Meek described. “He clicking through—‘Back to Back’ come on by mistake while we at the table, I’m like, ‘Oh, sh**…’”
“I gotta take a sh** now, I’m like, ‘Godd**n, what the f**k!’” he said. “I don’t even know if they remember that, but sh**, I remembered that!”
Alexa, delete “Back to Back” by Drake…forever.
