Meek Mill is a well-known name in hip hop, and since the beginning of his career, the rapper has been bringing us quality music. From Dreams And Nightmares to Expensive Pain, the Philadelphia rapper has some fantastic projects to his name. However, as well as producing amazing albums, the rapper also produces headlines as he’s synonymous with controversy and has had feuds with everyone in the industry.
Meek Mill’s feuds are undeniably entertaining. However, sometimes they can distract listeners from the music that he’s making. The rapper has feuded with everyone, from Cassidy, The Game and Drake to Beanie Sigel, 6ix9ine, and the list continues. Furthermore, the rapper has had several highly publicised run-ins with the law. His dealings with the criminal justice system dating back to 2005, with his most recent legal charge coming in the form of a firearm misdemeanour he received in 2019.
The 35-year-old artist (real name Robert Rihmeek Williams) was also in a high-profile, highly volatile relationship with Queens rapper, Nicki Minaj. Minaj, after their relationship, in a public spat, even made allegations of domestic violence by Williams. Taking to Twitter in 2020, Minaj wrote, “You a clown. U do IT for likes. #TwitterFingers beat women, scared of men.” She continued, “you beat your own sister and taped it. Spat on her and taped it. Kicked me in front of your mother and sent her to the hospital.”
Of course, no official charges were ever pressed by Minaj, but his involvement in drama is arguably what has kept the spotlight on Meek. However, drama aside. Meek Mill is still a talented rapper and has continued to showcase his lyrical ability on his projects with his 2021 album Expensive Pain reaching number three on the Billboard 200.
In an interview with the Bay Area’s Wild 94.9, Meek was asked to name his rap all-star dream team, to which he responded as “Biggie, 2Pac, Jay-Z, Nas and Lil Wayne”. In an interview with Billboard talking about his collaboration with Nas, Mill explained, “Nas is one of the best rappers ever. Just having him in the studio, that’s a big thing to me. I grew up listening to this guy.”
