Here it is: the photo shoot you've been patiently waiting for. Rappers Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill formed a formidable hip hop force when they hooked up earlier this year.

The couple took their show on the road, selling out nightclubs everywhere. Now the stylish couple is featured in their very first photo shoot together for GQ magazine.

If they keep this up, someone might be convinced they are a real couple after all.

From GQ.com:

Minaj says that there was one very important person who wasn't on board with her new relationship at first. "The only person was my mother. My mother only knows Meek from what she sees in public, in the media. She's met him now, but she just wants to make sure he's a nice guy. She's overprotective of her daughter. Another thing people don't realize is I've only had three boyfriends in my whole life. I've never dated around... I don't have a whole lot of experience in that department so my mother and my family were very like what? This is a big step, because they've only known one thing for over a decade. Even my pastor, who's like a second mother, was scared. Everybody was just scared. Those women were scared for me because when I love someone I really let them in, and I really let me guard down, and I think it's only natural for a mother to just you know, she just wanted to make sure I wasn't rushing into anything."

Elsewhere in the interview, the couple talks about double dates with Alicia Keys and Swizz Beat, how they finally got together, and the biggest misconceptions about their relationship.

      GQ didn't even attempt to make them high fashion. Oddly enough, it's Nicki's implants that probably made them think that was impossible. As small as she is the fake hips and butt make her look fat. She looked a mess during NYFW.

    • iWasteTime

      I'm going to go read to see if they were asked about Drake .. #Petty

      I'm sorry but, when Meek is w/Nicki, he looks like an annoying little brother you have to take everywhere with you cuz ya mother says so, but you can't say no cuz that's your little brother.

    • ShelbyMoore

      Meek needs to give that borrowed money back to Nicki. Nicki's nasty azz licking her nasty azz fingers after touching that nasty azz money. Nasty azz broad.

      I see you get the humor.

    • MookieFly

      I bet Meek got a mean curved one. That's the only reason I could see Nicki all up on this mouth breather. Or he got juicy dirt on her. Like she got hairy areolas or something. He got pictures before the implants when she had orangutan tiddays. Something is keeping these two together

    • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

      see I was gonna let all that slide. I saw it and side eyed the fugg out of it. All this chit you done did and they worried about Meek crayon chewing ass. Come on Nickki

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Sorry if my writing goes over your head. Maybe you should try reading slowly.

      Exactly. Nicki and Meek don't realize they are being played.

    • MookieFly

      Some parents are mute as long as you are bringing in the money. Until you get a bump in the road that could eff up the finances(aka Meek) do they start caring

    • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

      why this dress looks like it came from Rainbow or Cititrends. Nothing about this chit says sexy or fashion high or low. smh

    • OpinionHated

      Money is nasty - she using her saliva to count money she nasty..... you know how many hands money passes through - GROSS!!!!!! Why does he always have to look so blasted happy just to be there - like somebody said yesterday he the snotty nosed kid that smell like pee... and never have ice cream truck money... did this ho invoke the pastor and try to paint herself as a church girl with morals and low dating numbers - bish bye - we may buy that good girl image if you wasn't inflating your tiddays and azz and running around shaking them both like you getting paid for jiggles... ugghh hate people who be like my pastor this and that - is her pastor Eddie Long strokes cause he ain't advising her properly....

    • OpinionHated

      COSIGN!!!

    • Cricket404

      Sounds like Bey gave Onika some advice on marketing. What's next, a baby then countless vacations to exotic places and rented mansions.

    • Pebbles

      I've been a lurker for many years. I would come on here for laughs, especially when you all roast new people , some would roll with the punches laugh & get their packets and others were like little kids on the playground didn't know how to flow and always wanted to be a tell a teller.

      I noticed the change in the writing style & different things but maybe she hired writers who haven't quite found their " niche" & don't know their audience. I'm just saying!

    • jussaying

      Beyoncé never talked about her relationship tho. Nor did she do photoshoots with jigga. Onika missed the mark.

    • IntroSpective

      If they're using Alicia Keys' and Swizzy's relationship as a blueprint for their own, then I wish them good luck ?

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Now you can go talk shit on other blogs with better writers and more comments. Ta ta.

    • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

      This again huh? Well...ok then...something positive...real happiness is precious. I hope they have that.

    • iWasteTime

      Well Onika did not listen to the advice.
      I see where you were going but Meek is no Shawn Corey or Kasim Dean ( Alicia took the advice) Now if you sub Meek with The Game, or Future, or Wayne, or Big Sean ... etc etc.
      He has to have the record sales, fan base, all ready branched out BEFORE you wife him

    • IntroSpective

      Her fashions usually are OFF to me. Just no....?

    • Poochie

      I hope she stops with trying to prove her situationship is real.

      That's right, y'all already official. ?

      I caught that too. They're now one of those old school couples featured on Unsung.

    • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

      GOD and the social worker knew better though because when I tell you her report completely roasted him...I wanted to jump up and shout when she got to the part where she stated her recommendation. She basically said "this dude isn't shyt and the girls do not need to be in his custody imo."

    • PettyEyezPrime

      Glad you're back and sorry you had to go through that.

    • Wildcat34

      The chances of this couple being real are as convincing as Nicki Minaj body parts being authentic. And plus, I missed the sexy part.

      So tired of seeing this woman with cat eye makeup & an 18 inch ponytail.

      You at the finish line. Don't lose it. ?

    • Wildcat34

      She is delusional, disrespectful and entitled. Someone needs to give her a good beating.

    • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

      You know...I'm not sorry. I experienced a lot of negative emotions behind it but I had this moment of clarity where I just let go and let God...and if we hadn't had to go through it exactly that way, with all of us having to be evaluated, it wouldn't have worked out the way it did. FINALLY a completely impartial party saw that it's not about my personal feelings. The fact of the matter is he's not a dependable person or parent. She saw it and because of that I now officially have sole physical and legal custody.

    • SameoleJ

      I agree, because I cannot remember a GQ shoot wherein ANYBODY was sitting around counting money. I thought people with too much cash to count had one of those machines to do it.....or is that only in mob movies. Either why it looks the complete opposite of being GQ.

    • Just Keya

      I can't take you to a place I can't go boo. From what I read, Sandra said you have to email Bird and if she says she has no idea of what your talking about, you can't get it.

    • SummerBaby

      Wait whet? Really?

    • Just Keya

      Yup. Unless they were telling jokes and I missed it. But if I missed it, I was not the only one.

    • PettyEyezPrime

      Wow??

    • SummerBaby

      Why is your name changed to guest?

    • Just Keya

      Is she blocked too?!

    • PettyEyezPrime

      So we on the outside and we can't get in? Goes to find Bird to test said theory.

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      Yep that's what Sandra said yesterday.. TO email Bird to get password and let in.. If she say "who is you" access denied.

    • Just Keya

      Let me know how that goes. *sends up prayers*

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      Nah I think she did that. If she was blocked all her comments would be gone.

    • Just Keya

      SO did you get in?

    • PettyEyezPrime

      What happened today? I've been around more today than I have been and still seem to be missing everything.

      He can't even take a good pic with a professional photog. He cheapens her to me. I don't understand why she chose him but her life, her decision. If she likes it, I love it.

    • Jozie723

      Agree... they both look cheap... they didn't even photo shop his horrible skin. Don't understand how this benefits Nikki but I guess she knows.

    • Jozie723

      And his jacket looks like pleather... best picture of him I've seen though.

    • Monday

      She's trying to put him up on her level so we forget about the Drake diss. "Double Dating with Alicia Keys and Swiss Beat".... humm kayyyyyy

      I have been a lurker and a Rose(lost log in changed jobs etc) years. The writing has changed just like life changes. I don't think Sandra has any intentions on bringing back the old blog. My question when you all say bring back the blog does it detail the writing or the new sign in log with Disguise (yes I spelled it correctly)?
      Just a question IMO?
