Meek Mill has nothing but positive things to say about his rap peers, J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar. However, when it comes to artists that inspire him, Meek said in a recent interview with Angie Martinez, that Cole and Kendrick do not make the cut. “They’re dope lyricists, great rappers…but they don’t inspire me. They don’t seem like they’re talking to me. And that ain’t no hate,” Meek said when speaking on Kendrick and Cole.

When it comes to the artist that Meek listens to he listed the likes of Future, Dej Loaf, Young Thug and Jay-Z. No disrespect intended from Meek, but it will be interesting to see if Kendrick or Cole give the rapper a friendly reminder of why they should inspire him. After all, they put out two of the best rap albums in the past year (and it isn’t even debtable).
