meek mill nicki minaj

Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill brought their budding romance to the City of Love last night. As her Pinkprint European tour rolled into Paris for the second of her sold-out shows at the Zénith de Paris, Nicki surprised the crowd by bringing out her new boo. Meek hit the stage for a quick set that included “Dreams & Nightmares Intro” and “Ima Boss.” He’ll be a full-time guest on Nicki’s tour when it hits the U.S. this summer, with Tinashe, DeJ Loaf and Rae Sremmurd also joining them on the road.

Following the concert, Omeeka enjoyed some alone time (well, almost) as they cozied up backstage before paying a late-night visit to the Eiffel Tower.

Meek Mill and Beanie Sigel have both had a rough go of it recently: Meek found himself behind bars for most of 2014 for a simple parole violation while Beans, despite being released from prison last summer, reportedly had a lung removed back in January after catching a stray bullet.

However, the two Philly natives received a hero’s welcome at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday night (March 21) as Puma threw a homecoming concert for Meek Mill. The MMG rapper brought out a slew of special guests, including Rick Ross, French Montana, Jeezy, Fabolous and Yo Gotti, but the highlight of the night was seeing Beanie Sigel hit the stage alongside fellow State Property cronies Young Gunz.

“They done and sent my n*gga to prison. They done shot my nigga. But he’s still back holding it down for Philly,” Meek said to the crowd as Mack Mittens ran through Roc-A-Fella classics like “Do It Again (Put Ya Hands Up)” and “Roc the Mic.”
