Meek Mill        

Hip-Hop Recording Artist

Robert “Meek Mill” Williams is a Grammy-nominated recording artist, entrepreneur and criminal justice reform advocate that hails from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Mill evolved from Philadelphia’s hottest underground rapper to one of the world’s preeminent musical artists, having released a slew of smash studio albums and singles, including “Ima Boss,” “Dreams and Nightmares (Intro),” “All Eyes on You,” and “Whatever You Need,” among many others. His latest studio album, CHAMPIONSHIPS, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s “Top 200 Albums,” marking his second chart-topper following his 2015 album DREAMS WORTH MORE THAN MONEY. Mill is also the CEO of Dream Chasers, his music label imprint that he launched in 2012 and named after his mixtape series.

Until July 2019, Mill had been entrapped in the criminal justice system and shuffled through the prison system over technical probational violations – all despite never committing a crime. His last incarceration in November 2017 spurred the international #FreeMeekMill movement, where artists, athletes and business leaders like Shawn “JAY-Z” Carter, Michael Rubin, Kevin Hart and James Harden, publicly advocated on his behalf until he was released on bail on April 24, 2018. Mill has since used his public platform to generate awareness around the problems of the criminal justice system – including excessive probation regulations, the disproportionate bail system and the lack of rehabilitation programs available – and highlight how they disproportionately affect people of color.

He is also the co-chair of the REFORM Alliance, which launched in January 2019 and aims to advance criminal justice reform and eradicate outdated policies that perpetuate injustice in the United States. He partnered with JAY-Z, Rubin, Robert Kraft, Robert F. Smith, Clara Wu Tsai, Laura Arnold, Michael Novogratz and Daniel Loeb to launch the organization. Additionally, Mill is a co-owner of sports apparel retailer Lids, the largest retail seller of hats and licensed sports product in North America.

The rap game can be so vicious. Last week, we almost lost YG when he was shot three times in the hip at a recording studio in L.A. Fortunately, the West Coast rhymer is recovering well, but still, there are concerns regarding the safety in the hip-hop community. Over the weekend, Meek Mill chimed in on the incident and gave some words of advice to YG.
