The Net Worth Of The Famous Rapper Meek Mill
Meek Mill is an American rapper with a net worth of approximately $3 million. He began his career in the 2000s when he began releasing mixed tapes. Born in Philadelphia in 1987, the young rapper has made it his business to become famous, and he uses his stage name as his way to the top.
He was born Robert Rahmeek Williams, and he has founded his own record label called Dream Chasers Records. He has only released one studio album to date, and it did not perform nearly as well as he or his label hoped that it would.
The record sold less than half a million copies and he’s still not famous enough that everyone knows his name. He’s working an angle right now to get his name out there, since he’s spent several years of his short life behind bars thus far after being involved in some questionable behavior.
Meek is one of the most popular rappers in the world today.He has the net worth of $20 million dollars.

Robert Rahmeek Williams, known professionally as Meek Mill, was born on May 6, 1987, in South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Meek’s father was killed during an attempted robbery when he was five years old.
His mom Kathy worked several jobs to support her family after he husband’s death. At times she had to resort to shoplifting. As a kid, Meek was shy. Meek’s uncle was the pioneering DJ Grandmaster Nell, who was part of the late 1980s Philadelphia hip-hop scene. DJ Grandmaster Nell influenced Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff.
Meek started participating in rap battles under the name Meek Millz as a teenager. He formed the rap group The Bloodhoundz with three friends. When he was 18, Meek was arrested for illegally possessing a firearm when police stopped him walking to a corner store.
The police beat Meek so badly that both of his eyes were swollen, his lips were swollen, and one of his braids was ripped out. The police claimed Meek chased them with the gun and tried to kill them. Meek was put on probation.
How He Made His Career Successful
Meek Mill’s career began in 2003, when he formed the rap group ‘The Bloodhoundz’ with three of his friends. the group released four mix-tapes, and then Mill started to gain interest from fellow rappers and record companies.
T.I signed Meek Mill to Grand Hustle Records, and gave him the opportunity to tour with him. However, Meek was shortly arrested after once again for illegal gun possession, as well as drug possession.
Mill served seven months in prison because of this.He was signed to Maybach Music Group in 2011, and really started to see mainstream success during this time; after collaborating with rappers such as Birdman, Lil Wayne, and DJ Khaled.Throughout his career, Meek Mill has released several studio albums, EP’s, and Mix-tapes.
How He Made His Money
Mill is making money when he can, mostly from his record company and from the sales of his records and a few appearances here and there, but the world knows that it’s not enough for the young rapper.
He needs to make a name for himself. Someone who has been in the rap game as long as he has cannot only have a net worth of $3 million, which shows that things are not going his way. Sure, it’s a lot of money for some, but for someone who has released an album approximately three years ago, it’s not the greatest fortune.
Right now he is looking to make a name for himself so that he can hype up his reputation and potentially release another album. At least, that’s the thought behind his recent foray into the press.
