Meek Mill is a relatively new face but his rise to fame was rather quick. Meek Mill’s estimated net worth is at $2 million right now.

He has been arrested and sentenced to jail several times with his last sentence on the time of this writing being in July 2014. He was released again on December 2, 2014. Obviously, this negatively affects his popularity, causes forced cancellations of performances and delays in new releases. What he was convicted of? Drug dealing and gun possession.
Because Meek Mill is a relatively new face, there is not much biographical information available. What we know is that he was born in 1987 and lost both of his parents when he was only five years old. He was raised by his grandmother and uncle who was a hip-hop pioneer from Philadelphia known as Grandmaster Nell. He began to take singing seriously when he was only 12 and soon formed his own group BloodHoundz with three other friends from his neighborhood. It lasted for five years and they have successfully released several free mixtapes. One of these albums, Flamerz-2, has caught attention of the president of 215 Aphillyated Records, Charlie Mack. This lead to series of new introductions and opened new doors for more opportunities.
Despite his problems with the law, Meek Mill has big plans. He is planning to establish his own foundation which will instill the value of education into teenage boys and young men. In addition, he is planning to collaborate with United Community Action Network and the Lifers of Graterford Prison to confront violence in the streets. Many famous hip-hop artists and rappers get involved with this type of work with Master P being one of the most famous examples. As a self-made celebrity and millionaire, Meek Mill must have unusual levels of persistence and high energy that, when channeled to a good cause, can give outstanding results.
