Tour riders are often the stuff of crazy lore. For instance, did Van Halen really demand all the "brown ones" to be picked out of his m&m's? Who knows?
Rapper (and boyfriend of Nicki), Meek Mill's tour rider has just been unearthed and it is gold. Meek must have been a chef in another life because his rider is a straight up culinary masterpiece. It doesn't even look like a rider. It looks like a restaurant menu.
