Despite a markedly successful 2019, Philly rap star Meek Mill came to a heart-to-heart with the realities of his Hollywood lifestyle Thursday (Dec. 26) via Twitter.
Meek revealed to his 8.8 million followers that he believesmoney and fame somewhat “ruined [him] as a person.” He added that though he’s watched several people change for the worse during his career, he already had plans in motion to make a billion dollars sooner than we think.
Appreciative of his dispiriting, but honest, admission about himself, fans of the Championships artist responded with open arms and supportive words:
Despite the revelation, Meek has been setting his career up for major success. Since his early prison release in 2018, he’spositioned himself in a circle of financial wealth that’s lined up with some of Forbes top-earners of the entertainment industry, including executive music moguls and professional sports team owners. Meek leveled up his resume in 2019 when he launched his criminal justice reform, REFORM Alliance, in January with Jay-Z. The vision of the alliance is to “dramatically reduce the number of people who are unjustly under the control of the criminal justice system - starting with probation and parole.”
Meek continuing piling up the dollars when he announced that he was the new co-owner of Lids, a popular hat and licensed sports product retailer. In late July, the recording artist also partnered with Hov yet again when the two unveiled their joint Roc Nation record label, Dream Chaser Records, under the Roc Nation umbrella.
His presence on Twitter has also become more noticeable amid his recent absence on Instagram, in which the “Going Bad” rapper deleted his Instagram page. As reported by several outlets, such as The Source, the deactivation came shortly after his rumored girlfriend Milan Harris, fashion designer and founder of the fashion brand, Milano Di Rouge, announced that she was pregnant.
Nonetheless, Meek has consistently remained at full force in his career efforts and kept the musical momentum strong, so we’re glad to know he’s sharpening his focus amid the revelation.
What remains to be seen is whether 2020 will notch on another successful year for him, and by the looks of his wins thus far, the answer is certainly leaning in his favor.
