Meek Mill

Meek Mill has certainly been staying busy on his road to glory. When he wasn't making controversial chart-topping hits with Drake ("Amen") he was making headlines as a central figure in some of music's biggest controversies. Still, the Philly-bred MC was able to impress with his debut album, Dreams & Nightmares, which came in at No. 2 on record charts. Rumble, young man, rumble. (Photo: Rick Diamond/Getty Images for BET)
