Meek Mill is an American Hip Hop artist. Mill released his debut album, Dreams & Nightmares in 2012, which debuted at number two on the U.S Billboard 200. Before breaking into the main stream music, Mills made four mix tapes with the rap group The Bloodhoundz. These mixed tapes caught the attention of record labels and was signed up.
Meek Mill was born as Robert Rahmeek Williams in 1987. He was raised by his mother, Kathy Williams. His father was killed by gunfire when Mill was just five years old, but he spent a lot of time with his uncle, Philadelphia hip-hop legend DJ Grandmaster Nell, his father's younger brother. They were not financially stable so his mother started cutting hair and doing odd jobs to support her family.
