Meek Mill is a clear example of making his dreams come true — so it was only right that he title his album, Dreams Worth More Than Money — and talk about it on Sway in the Morning.

With his project officially in-stores, Meek breaks down his lyrics on some of Sway’s favorite tracks off the project, and confirms that one day he’ll be bigger and better than Jay Z.

“I want people to get my lyrics tatted” he tells Sway.

There’s no doubt that Mill is focused. Even telling us about his studio habits.

“We just record. We don’t write nothing down on paper. It just be me and the producer [who made the beat], and we just record.”

During the period of time that he was locked up, he stayed hungry and battled fellow inmates, kept in touch with the bawse, Ricky Ross, and of course his lady, Nicki Minaj. While in-studio with us, he opened up about his jail-time rap stories and how hundreds of men would watch Nicki’s Anaconda video back-to-back-to-back.

On the subject of his woman, he admits that Nicki is guiding him to bigger success. It was even her idea to record Meek’s current single, “All Eyes on Me” featuring Chris Brown!

What about the regular relationship things? Like a true gentleman, Meek likes to pay on their dates. But when the bill comes out to $50k-$60k, he’ll let Nicki go half. Plus, while she was going through her public breakup with Safaree, he gave her solid advice as her friend.

From selling drugs to his school principal, to his international success, Meek Mill is only going up from here. Watch below for more and cop his album, Dreams Worth More Than Money HERE.
