Sources close to Meek and Nicki -- who are dating now -- tell TMZ the couple is joining forces as the "Hottest Rap Couple" for appearances in NYC Saturday night, and again in Charlotte later this month. There's also talk of putting together a world tour.
We're told the couple wanted to do it together so they could, y'know -- make twice as much cheese touring as a package deal. Also, it's easier to hook up this way.
Although they're co-headlining ... make no mistake, Nicki's the bigger draw -- and we're told she's getting paid almost double what Meek makes.
Of course, he still gets fringe benefits.
