VIDEO FAB: Nicki Minaj's "Up In Flames" (VIDEO) + Meek Mill DEFENDS Rick Ross' Rape Lyrics

Rapper Nicki Minaj is back with a video for "Up In Flames."  Watch the clip inside and see what Meek Mill had to say while defending the lyrics of Rick Ross.  

 

Although her "High School" video is barely a week old, Nicki keeps the momentum going with "Up In Flames", another visual from Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded the Re-Up. The Grizz Lee-directed clip focuses on Nicki's creative process as she works on lyrics in the studio, sits at a piano (which she never plays), poses in front of a room of candles and includes several scenes of rumored boyfriend Sarafee.  Since he's trying to get on with a solo rap career himself, it makes sense.

Watch the "Up In Flames" video here:

As rape survivor groups pressure Reebok to drop rapper Rick Ross from their list of spokesmen, Rick's protege Meek Mill has stepped up to the plate to defend him and his controversial lyrics. 

During an interview with the Urban Informer, Meek defended the "U.O.E.N.O." song saying, “I don’t even care about nobody criticizing no lyrics. People rap about killing stuff all day. Biggie said, Rape your kid. Throw her over the bridge.’ It was nothing, it was just hip-hop.”

Meek totals blows off the concerns of rape survivors and other activist groups saying, 

"Now you got all these weirdos on these social sites voicing their opinion about something anybody say. I don’t care. I’m from the ‘hood. I never really cared about what nobody say in no rap. Rap’s always been talking about killing, drugs, all types of stuff.”

Smh....that's a very mature way to look at things Meek.  

He went on to explain that Rick was just being creative and people shouldn't take it so literal.  “It’s imaginary visual. If a writer write about somebody getting raped in a movie, that mean he a rapist or he want girls to get raped? No, he just wrote about that in a movie.”

Unfortunately, Meek's "I don't care" attitude seems right in line with Rick's half-assed apologies from a few days ago.   These dudes just don't seem to make a mental connection between what they are rapping about the impact it might have on their audience or just society in general.  It's pretty sad that they don't take their own lyrics more seriously.

Like it or not, Meek has a

Like it or not, Meek has a point. We never accuse writers or actors of film or television of being the very thing they portray. Nobody said Monique abuses children or protested her for doing "Precious". Meek basically announced that he and Rick are actors and what they say in their lyrics aren't real. They only problem with this idiot's statement is that he and Rick both claim to be sooooo legit and real. That means that until Rick admits he's an actor, he has on gone on record in real life to condone raping a female. Now that Meek is defending those beliefs, we need to stop supporting him as well!!!

as for NM's song, the beat

as for NM's song, the beat and the hook are hot but the lyrics in the song are trash. im a sucka for boys on bikes tho so big ups to the stunt man and Safaree. Meek Mill has to realize that biggie didnt have any endorsements or as much money on the line AND biggie wasnt a fraud. Rick Ross is losing right now.

Nicki is a horrible horrible

Nicki is a horrible horrible rapper, just ugh... That's okay, let Ross and Meek keep talking $#!t their career and endorsements will be just like Nicki's trash video 'Up In Flames'. On another note, Meek Mill is one of the ugliest Negros on earth (IDK how he manages to look even uglier than Rick Ross but he pulls it off effortlessly), he looks like his breath smells like garbage.

I'm not surprised. Music has

I'm not surprised. Music has really gone down the drain. No accountability, no REAL art. As long as it sells, nothing else matters. And people, for too long, have supported mediocrity and BS. We've created some monsters folks.

AS AN Abuse Victim.......I

AS AN Abuse Victim.......I wish i could wish death upon meek mill but i wont ......these rappers are so low class and ignorant its unreal..and the annoying thing is you got young boys and girls supporting this shit on social media.....i cry in shame...if these are the people that are the face of black music ....you wonder why peeps do not take African Americans seriously?...Boys/men are the main fanbase for rap....so you can imagine looking up to and listening to this buffons.........no one should ever condone rape... i would not wish such evil on my enemy ...the psychological trauma is only for the strong who pull through.......and enough of this 'im from the hood' bullshit that ignoramus and black people use to cover up their stupidity instead of learning .....if our own men/ the major faces in black entertainment industry can come out and condone rape...then i weep for the African American/Black race...

These rappers are so ignorant

These rappers are so ignorant and you have to maintain some type of responsibility in your music and art to some extent. I get the rapping about money, sex and material wealth but when you condone date rape and things of that nature, it's beyond inappropriate.
