Nicki Minaj And Meek Mill Need To Have A Baby ASAP
I still have a hard time fully grasping how the homie Meek Mill came and scooped up Nicki Minaj out of the ashes of her 10-year relationship to Safaree. Then, he did the unthinkable – put a ring on it! He put a reported $500,000, 15-carat heart-shaped yellow diamond engagement ring on it! Now, let it be known, depending on who you talk to, this is the equivalent to winning the lottery in Hip-Hop. Nicki is regarded as top-shelf in so many ways these days. Guess what’s next?
Before I answer that, let me run down the landscape a bit. We have Kanye, Kim and North, Beyonce, Jay, and Blue…and their kids. I love how they are raising their kids, all worldly and stuff and the reactions are pricey. Have you seen North West’s expressions the weekend she was baptized by Armenian priests? Priceless. She seems to abhor all of the attention, just like her daddy once upon a time. Blue Ivy, on the other side, makes it common practice to show up at ritzy art museums seemingly with a profound appreciate of the visuals. Jay says she already owns a Basquiat original. Who could hate what these kids are experiencing at such and early age?
There is another side though.
I could be out of touch with the papz, but I rarely see those more humane moments with those megastars, which is understandable in this celebrity-obsessed culture we live in. I think Meek and Nicki are going to present the more candid, fun and carefree side of celebrity parenting. Imagine a little Nicki Minaj rolling on the ground in a colorful wig or a little Meek popping a wheeling on his tricycle. These guys are fun to watch in general and seem 100% genuine regardless of when you catch them together. Jay, B, and Kanye are of a different era than these two. Nicki and Meek have used social media to share just about every aspect of their lives to their benefit where as their older contemporaries have only recently opened up to the idea.
Nicki – while tremendously famous and successful – still evokes that regular woman from the hood that we are rooting for. In November of 2014, Nicki, 31, shared in song that she had lost a child 15-16 years ago. “I want Caiah (younger brother) to go to college just to say we did it/ My child with Aaron, would’ve have been 16 any minute/ So in some ways I feel like Caiah is the both of them/ It’s like he’s Cai’s little angel looking over him,” Minaj said on “All Things Go.” In the song, she also revealed that she has had deep-rooted family issues, was previously engaged and has had lost loved ones to street violence.
Guys are straight up rooting for Meek, which is hilarious. It seemed like a win for everynormalman! First of all, he managed to legitimately win the heart of the the biggest, brightest rap female. Secondly, he “wifed” Nicki (hood term’s people!), something her poor ride-or-die ex could not achieve. Most people don’t remember the dirty-looking Philly kid with the tattered braids back in the day, but I do. Meek was well talked about in underground circles, courted by T.I. and signed by Rick Ross. More recently, people know that Meek did a stint in jail, a move that almost derailed his success. You know how Hip-Hop loves a “Free (Insert Rapper Name Here” campaign. Most of the time, those rappers falter after prison, but not Meek! What they aren’t saying is, “What kid of daddy will Meek be if they have kids?” We may soon find out.
Nicki is ready for kids and Meek is reportedly down as they move towards their wedding date.
One site said, “Nicki and Meek have discussed family and children. They are both on board as soon as they get married.” In the past Nicki has stated that she will only have kids if she’s married. “I definitely will be married before I have my baby. I always said, ‘When I have my baby, it’s going to be all about my baby,’” Nicki told Complex. “I don’t want the child feeling like they don’t have all of my attention, so I always said, ‘I’m going to take a little break.’” Imagine Nicki sharing how she gets her “body back” after kids?
It looks like we have a quorum! They are having kids!
I’ve always been fascinated with how celebrities raise their kids and adults those children become. Meek and Nicki…as parents, pique my interest. I look at it like a social study or just a gaze into a deeper, ordinary facet of an extraordinary person’s life. So, we have these individuals that are famous, but have not fully surrendered all of their their humanity to the dark side of celebrity. And they want to have kids and be married? I suspect it will be a reality exhibit that plays out in social media and pumped to the world. We’ll all be watching.
We say Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill need to have a baby now! What do you think?
