Meek Mill Explains How Father’s Murder Motivated Him To ‘Get Rich’

Meek Mill opens up about the impact of losing his father to gun violence at a young age, revealing that it motivated him to strive for success. The rapper addressed detractors on Twitter, stating that speaking ill of his deceased father does not affect him. “My dad died in 1992 doing a robbery … that made me wanna get rich. That was the get back. The person who killed my dad is probably 60… talking about dead people don’t hurt me,” wrote Meek on Twitter/X. Meek also engaged in a social media feud with independent Philly artist Poundside Pop, accusing him of being a “snitch” and threatening to “crush his son.” Additionally, Meek Mill and DJ Akademiks could engage in a lucrative boxing contest on May 18 in Atlanta, with Damon Feldman offering a $1 million purse for the victor.
