Meek Mill is an American rapper.
Career: As a teenager Meek Mill formed a rap collective called Bloodhoundz and released four mixtapes.
He was signed to 215 Aphillyated Records in 2008 after releasing the mixtape 'Flamers 2: Hottest in tha City', and later caught the attention of T.I. who led him to two record deal offers from Grand Hustle and Warner Bros.
While working with Grand Hustle, he joined up with DJ Drama to release 'Flamers 3: The Wait Is Over' in 2010 featuring the single 'Rose Red'.
He signed to Rick Ross' Maybach Music Group in 2011, and released debut single 'Tupac Back', followed by 'Ima Boss'.

In 2015, he announced details of his second album 'Dreams Worth More Than Money'.
Personal life: Meek Mill grew up in Philadelphia with his mother Kathy Williams; his father died after being shot during a robbery when he was just 5-years-old. The family lived in poverty, and while Mill was rarely vocal, he became interested in hip hop after meeting local DJ Grandmaster Nell.
Mill began dating Nicki Minaj in 2015.
At 18, he was arrested for possession of a gun and beaten by police, who later claimed he assaulted them and he was thus charged.
He served seven months in prison for drug dealing and gun possession in 2008, and had his travel permit for touring revoked.
Since March 2015, Meek Mill has been involved in a heavily publicized ongoing feud with Drake.
More than a year after his entertaining beef with Meek Mill, Drake once again dissed the Philadelphia rapper during a gig in his hometown.

The Philadelphia rapper could be headed back to prison, with a judge ordering him not to work or perform until sentencing on February 5th.

Mill, whose real name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, appeared in court in Philadelphia on Thursday (December 17th) and offered emotional testimony about his tough childhood growing up in the northern part of the city, while his girlfriend Nicki Minaj and a number of managers gave supporting evidence, according to local news outlet NBC 10.

Nicki and Drake are friends, Nicki and Meek are ‘engaged’, Meek thinks Drake uses a ghostwriter…this wasn't going to end well.
Nicki Minaj has reportedly called it quits with her ‘fiancee’ Meek Mill following his high profile feud with Drake. The rapper has been embroiled in a spat with Drake for over a week now, after he accused him of using a ghostwriter to pen his lyrics.
Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill are reportedly no more.
According to MediaTakeOut Minaj ended the relationship on Thursday, though the pair will continue to tour together to fulfil existing obligations. A source told the website, “It’s complicated. I think they took their relationship too far, too fast.”
Finally, Mill has come back at Drake's two diss tracks with one of his own.
Meek Mill has at last responded to Drake in the escalating, and increasingly entertaining, war of words that’s broken out between them over the last 10 days. The Philadelphia-born rapper fired back at Drizzy’s two diss tracks by releasing one of his own on Thursday night (July 30th).
The track, called ‘Wanna Know’, got its first airing on New York’s Hot 97 radio station last night. It sees Mill repeat the claim that the Canadian star uses ghostwriters to pen his lyrics. One of the barbs goes “n***** writing for you cause you know you never did s***,” and Mill’s flow seems to imitate that of Drake’s own ‘Started From The Bottom’.
