Born Robert Williams on 6 May 1987, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA, Meek Mill is an American rapper, who started his career in 2000s with the release of several mixtapes. Meek Mill is perhaps best known as a former member of “The Bloodhoundz” along with a couple of friends. Their fourth mixtape was ”Flamers 2: Hottest in da City”, and was popular for such singles as “Prolli” and “I`m So Fly”. It also boosted Meek Mill’s net worth, as well as gaining fame for him and the band, but it also led Meek Mill to start working with Grand Hustle Records.
So just how rich is Meek Mill? Meek’s net worth has been estimated by sources at $3 million, virtually all of it earned from his career in music, particularly as a rapper.

Warner Brothers Records also noticed the talent of Meek Mill, but Meek needed to increase his net worth, and so chose Grand Hustle Records in order to start his career with help of the American rapper T.I. However, such a smart decision, as soon after, Meek Mill was arrested. Thus, he never produced nor released any album in collaboration with Grand Hustle Records, but kept on releasing mixtapes, resulting in an enlarged net worth.
The year of 2011 was the new beginning for Meek Mill’s net worth: the rapper started working with Rick Ross, a famous American rapper and songwriter, in Rick`s Maybach Music Group (MMG). The first Meek single with the help of MMG and Rick Ross was “Tupac Back”. His following single was “Ima Boss” which was later acknowledged as the best single in the beginning of Mill`s career. In 2011 Meek Mill released one more mixtape named “Dreamchasers”, and one year after – its sequel “Dreamchasers 2” which was downloaded 1.5 million times.
Meek Mill released his first album, “Dreams and Nightmares” in 2012. On this album such celebrities as Kirko Bangz, Wale, Drake, John Legend, Big Sean also appeared, and many others. Around 350,000 copies of the album were sold. This definitely addED considerably to Meek Mill’s net worth.
Currently, Meek Mill is planning to produce and release the third part of “Dreamchasers”, scheduled to include such guest appearances from Akon, Waka Flocka Flame, Jadakiss and some others. In 2014 Meek was also scheduled to release his second studio album, ‘Dreams Worth More Than Money”.
Since 2012 Meek Mill’s net worth has been increasing because of the establishment of his own record label “Dream Chasers Records”. Its former artists include such stars as Louie V Gutta and Lil Snupe. Currently, “Dream Chasers Records” has been working along with Omelly, Goldie and Lee Mazin. Among a large number of released mixtapes by Meek Mill, the star has also released four compilation albums, which have managed to sell around 570,000 copies.
Meek Mill is a fan of luxurious cars: he owns a Maybach, Aston Martin, and Rolls Royce Ghost. As he is continuing his rapper`s career and his record company has just been founded, it is reasonable to say that Meek Mill is likely to earn a lot of money in the future.
In his personal life, Meek Mill has had several problems with the law. In 2008, Mill was convicted of drug dealing and gun possession and sentenced to 11 to 23 months in prison, but released in 2009 under a five year parole agreement. In 2014, Mill had his probation revoked due to several parole violations, and was sentenced to three to six months in jail, but was released early.
