Meek Mill, whose real name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, is a prominent American hip-hop recording artist who began his career in rap battles and is now one of the richest and most well-known musicians in the world. His rap group, ‘The Bloodhoundz,’ became a rage in rap battle circles across America, and Meek gained a reputation as a result of his rap group in the early stages of his career. Mill’s first big break came in 2008, when he secured a deal with Atlanta rapper T.I. for his very first recording. Meek made multiple label changes over his career in order to find the ideal work environment and creative freedom. He then moved on to Rick Ross’s Maybach Music Group, where he released his debut studio album, ‘Dreams and Nightmares,’ which brilliantly showed Meek’s powerful skill. Soon after, he released his second studio album, ‘Young and Gettin It,’ which debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 and catapulted Meek into a new realm of fame and money. He got into the music business through his own company, ‘Dream Chasers Records,’ and now he’s using it to promote fresh talent.

Childhood and Adolescence

Meek Mill was born on June 6, 1987, in south Philadelphia, to Kathy Williams and her spouse, Robert Rihmeek Williams. Nasheema Williams is Meek’s younger sister.

When his father died when he was just five years old, he was emotionally upset, and his family became impoverished due to a lack of cash.

Following his father’s death, Meek relocated to North Philadelphia with his mother and sister in search of a better life. They rented a three-bedroom apartment that they couldn’t afford, so his mother chopped her hair and shoplifted from time to time to make ends meet.

During his youth, Meek was a meek and quiet youngster who witnessed his mother go through a lot of challenges in order to sustain his family. He, on the other hand, became close to one of his father’s close friends, who happened to be a well-known DJ in Philadelphia’s underground music scene.

Meek joined him frequently and was greatly impacted by the thrill that music provided in his veins, prompting him to consider pursuing a career in music.

Mills became involved in the underground rap fight scene and spent his nights writing lyrics. The Bloodhound was created when he and two of his closest friends got together and began burning their music into CDs, keeping their dreams alive throughout their adolescence.

The Career of Meek

Meek Mills became well-known as a result of his early rap battles, and he attracted the attention of a number of well-known musicians.

T.I. was one of them, and Meek’s solo mixtapes ‘The Real Me,’ ‘The Real Me 2,’ and ‘Flamers’ had a big influence on him. T.I., the CEO of Grand Hustle Records, offered meek the opportunity to represent his upcoming mixtape, ‘Flamers 2: Hottest in Tha City.’

However, their collaboration was short-lived at first because both rappers were involved in legal issues, delaying the arrangement.

Following the hearings and charges, Meek published ‘Flamers 2.5: The Preview’ and ‘Flamers 3: The Wait is Over,’ which became his first mainstream success.

‘Make ’em Say’ and ‘Rose Red,’ in particular, were huge singles that helped Mills grow his fan base. Mr. California, Meek’s seventh mixtape, was released in 2010, and he said it was very personal to him on many levels.

Rick Ross, a famous name in the American rap scene, discovered him through mixtapes and signed him to his record label, Maybach Music Group, which gave Meek the opportunity to release two singles, ‘Ima Boss’ and ‘Tupac Back,’ for the company’s album ‘Self Made Vol. 1’.

Meek appeared nine times in the album, and in the two subsequent compilation albums, ‘Self Made Vol. 2’ and ‘Self Made Vol. 3,’ Meek received enough attention to demonstrating that he possessed significant potential.

His three-part mixtape series ‘Dreamchasers’ became a hit, with the second installment, ‘Dreamchasers Vol. 2,’ becoming the most downloaded mixtape of all time.

All of this success prompted Meek to produce his first studio album, ‘Dreams and Nightmares,’ in 2012, which received mixed reviews at first but went on to gain a Gold certificate three years later.

Meek Mill had great hopes for his second studio album, but things turned sour when he was arrested for a parole violation, delaying his release.

In 2015, he released the album Dreams Worth More Than Money,’ which sold 246000 copies in its first week of release alone.

Meek returned to the mixtape scene in October 2016, with the release of ‘Dreamchasers 4’ and the announcement of ‘Dreamchasers 4.5.’

Meek’s Controversies

Meek Mill received a lot of love and appreciation from his fans with the release of his single ‘Dreams and Nightmares,’ but a preacher from Philadelphia accused Meek of portraying religion in a negative way in the lyrics of ‘Amen,’ a song from the album.

Meek later explained that it was a rap song, that there is usually a lot of nasty stuff spoken in rap music, and that he didn’t mean to offend anyone’s religious beliefs by writing what he felt like at the time.

Rappers in the United States are well-known for their on-again, off-again feuds. Meek had his fair share of it as well.

He’s had beef with Cassidy, Drake, The Game, Beanie Siegel, Kendrick Lamar, and 50 cents during the course of his career.
