Robert Williams, better known by his stage name, Meek Mill, has come a long way in short period of time. Meek is an MC from Philadelphia who, like so many other MCs these days, made his way through the ranks with mix tapes, word of mouth promotion and a solid ability to write a decent rhyme with a catchy hook.
Meek Mill made his debut just a year ago when he released â€œTupac Backâ€ with Rick Ross. Meek is currently signed to Rossâ€™ Maybach Music Group. Shortly after, he released â€œIma Bossâ€ which peaked at #20 on the Billboard Hip-Hop chart.
Fast forward to 2012.
In February MTV ranked Meek Mill at #7 in their annual Hottest MCs in the Gameâ€ list. Come May, Meek released his second installment of the Dreamchasers mixtape series. His most successful mixtape to date, the album features Drake, Big Sean and 2 Chainz among others. The mixtape features the song â€œAmenâ€ with Drake, which is currently MTVâ€™s #2 video worldwide.
Meek Mill recently signed a deal with Roc Nation management, headed by Jay-Z. So with HOV in his corner, running the business side, you know this guy is about to seriously blow up. Keep an eye on Meek Mill, good things are coming.
