Meek Mill Blames Protein Shake for Suspect Drug Test

Nicki Minaj backs up his story.

Published December 11, 2015

Meek Mill gave an odd reason for failing a drug test, which Nicki Minaj totally backed up. The MMG rapper was in court yesterday over an unapproved trip to the American Music Awards and a urine specimen that turned out to be cold water, TMZ reports.


Meek attests that he indeed gave urine (not water) to a lab tech. Apparently, the Philly native added that he’s a bodybuilder and drinking protein shakes changed the color of his urine. 

Sounds bizarre, as urine and H20 have different chemical properties, but Minaj corroborated her boyfriend’s explanation in court Thursday. 

The 33-year-old rapper denied that Meek faked the test, testifying that he doesn’t do drugs. She also stated that she wouldn’t have let him drink the shakes if she knew what would happen to his urine.

Meek could get up to six months in jail for probation violation. Court resumes next week. is your No. 1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
