How Meek Mill’s net worth was built

A successful rap career has enabled Meek Mill, also known as Robert Rahmeek Williams, to amass his $3 million fortune. Though his mixtapes span back to the early 2000s, Meek Mill did not experience notable success until the 2007 release of “Flamer.” His early career was muddled with legal problems and brief stints in jail. The follow-up to “Flamerz,” “Flamerz 2- Hottest in the City” caught the attention of multiple record labels. Meek Mill eventually signed with Rick Ross’s label, Maybach Music Group.

After appearing on “Self Made Vol. 1,” a compilation album with other Maybach Music Group artists, he released his initial studio album, “Dreams and Nightmares” in December 2013. Meek Mill has since released a combination of studio albums, mixtapes, and compilation albums. In 2012, he founded Dream Chasers Records, his own imprint record label. He uses Dream Chasers Records for digital launches of his tracks and mixtapes.
