Since then the future rap-star was raised by his uncle and grandmother. He started his professional career working with record label Grand Hustle, owned by T.I., and later transferred to Rick Ross’ label Maybach Music Group.

In 2011 this Philadelphian artist was only known in his hometown, but everything changed when he was introduced to the fellow rapper, music producer and Chief Executive Manager of Maybach Music Group, Rick Ross. For the curious ones, this 37-year old currently holds a fortune significantly superior to Meek Mill net worth: according to most estimates, Rick has at least $28 million in his disposal. Before this fatal acquisition Robert’s professional career was at the deadlock. Following the footsteps of his uncle, hip hop-pioneer Grandmaster Nell, Meek joined his first band in his teens. BloudHoundz, that was the group’s name, consisted mostly of his friends from around the neighborhood and disbanded after the first unfertile attempts. Following this Meek decided to concentrate on his solo career.
It was not long before the word about him has spread from underground clubs and reached the years of hip-hop industry veterans, such as T.I., who signed him to Grand Hustle label. Unfortunately, this contract did not mark the beginning of Meek Mill net worth growth, because soon both the young rap artist and the veteran were imprisoned. Long story short- in 2008 Meek was pleaded guilty to gun possession and drug dealing. The court sentenced him to up to twenty-three months in prison. Although he was released in 2009, it took a couple of years before Meek landed another contract. In 2011 he signed with Maybach Music Group and started working in the studio. The same year some of his tracks, Such as “Tupac Back” and “Ima Boss”, were released with Maybach Music Group’s compilation album Self Made Vol. 1.
Meek Mill net worth growth gained momentum in 2012, as he released his debut album. Due to the popularity of the singles “Amen”, “Believe It” and “Young & Getting It”, Dreams and Nightmares hit Billboard 200 at No. 2 and went on to sell almost 350 thousand copies.
