How did Meek Mill manage to find his way to fame and fortune?
Mill comes from humble beginnings living with his mother and older sister in South Philadephia, Pennsylvania.
His father was killed in an attempted robbery when he was only five years old, and his mother was doing odd jobs to take care of him and his sister, he said in an op-ed. for Time.
“We didn’t have anything growing up,” he said. “So my mom worked any job she could find to support me and my sister. I love him so much for it.
His mother has been his greatest lawyer and showed it in her support for her son during his arrest in 2018.
The arrest sparked outrage as Mill was sentenced to two to four years for popping wheels on his off-road motorcycle and for fighting in early 2018.

The 12-year-old case was dropped a year later, and Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner said Meek “has been treated unfairly in a case that illustrates destruction caused by excessive surveillance, corruption and unfair processes in our criminal courts “.
