Performer Info

Meek Mill: This North Philadelphia rapper knew he wanted to make music from the age of 12. After losing a street battle to some neighborhood rappers, and through the inspiration of his grandfather, Philly rap pioneer Grandmaster Nell, Meek Mill set his sights on being the best and hasn’t looked back. Now one of the powerhouse five that make up the Maybach Music Group and collaborating with artists such as Rick Ross, T.I, Drake and Lil Wayne.

Born May 6, 1987, Robert Rahmeek Williams and his sister were raised by their mother after his father’s death when Mill was only five. After losing the rap battle, Meek Mill formed a group with three other neighborhood kids, Mel Love, Dat Nigga Leel and Young Pooh, calling themselves “Bloodhoundz”. The group split after five years and Mill went out on his own to explore his solo career.

Meek Mill soon became one of Philly’s hottest independent underground rappers, and began releasing mixtapes in 2006, debuting with The Real Me. Within a few years, after the release of the second successful mixtape of the Flamerz series, his output prompted offers from Warner Bros. and T.I.’s Atlantic-affiliated Grand Hustle. The MC chose to associate with Grand Hustle, but never got the chance to sign before he was arrested spent time in jail. Once free, he continued pushing mixtapes, including a fourth volume of the Flamerz series, and was included in XXL magazine’s Freshman Class feature for 2011. Through Twitter, Meek Mill caught the attention of Rick Ross, signed to Ross’ Maybach Music Group, and appeared on the label’s Self Made, Vol. 1 compilation prior to releasing his first real studio album, Dreamchasers.

In addition to his 2012 releases Self Made, Vol. 2,Dreamchasers 2 and Same Dream, Meek Mill has a few shows scheduled in July. Want more from the Philly rap sensation? Make sure to demand him in your hometown.
