Making not so good decisions leading him to prison as a teenager, which would follow him for more then 10 years into his rap career.

Im super excited that Meek Mill is doing this for his city. Many artist dont go back to the community in which they grew up and try to help improve it. Meek has shown he is not one of them people. His nonprofit organization Dream Chasers has renovated basketball courts, held thanksgiving food drives ), book bag drive and much more. I'm excited to see what else he has in his sleeve.
