Nicki performed “Only” and “Truffle Butter,” and publicly declared her love for the Dreamchasers rapper. “Love you, Meek,” she told her boo, who responded, “Love you too, baby.”

Meek Mill drops a freestyle over Drake's "Energy".
While we all patiently wait for the highly anticipated 'Dreams Worth More Than Money' album to drop, the Philly native decides to treat fans to a new freestyle in the meantime over the Drake –‘Energy’ instrumental.
Premiered by Funk Flex, Meek goes after ‘haters’ with this one and delivers bar after bar of straight heat for the streets. Highlighted by his rapid fire flow and vicious bars, 'Energy' is another reminder as for why Meek is considered to be the hardest rapper in the game right now.
For those who thought it ended last week, Jadakiss returns with another banger for ‘Friday Morning Massacre’ with his association with DJ Envy. This time he drops a freestyle over the instrumental of Capone-N-Noreaga’s ‘Bang Bang’. Jadakiss is the truth for this.
Last week Fabolous rapped on a Nas beat for his FridayNightFreestyles series and he's back at it again this week with ‘The World Is Yours’ instrumental off the classic album ‘Illmatic’. Perhaps the best Nas beat of all time.
This song offers proof that he's really writing these freestyles the same week he drops 'em because the song cover art features Derrick Rose mugging after he banked in the game-winner at the buzzer in Game 3. "That's why I bullshit with them generic hoes, don't show no emotion like Derrick Rose."
"The World Is Yours" marks his 11th consecutive #FridayNightFreestyle. How long can he keep it up? Fabolous is a movement on his own. His aura alone is changing the game for the better for the years to come!
