Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill, born Robert Williams, began releasing mixtapes in 2006, debuting with The Real Me. Within a few years, after the release of Flamerz 2, his output prompted offers from Warner Bros. and T.I.â€™s Atlantic-affiliated Grand Hustle. The MC opted to align with the latter label, but he never signed and spent some time in jail. Once free, he continued pushing mixtapes, including a fourth volume of the Flamerz series, and was included in XXL magazineâ€™s Freshman Class feature for 2011. Through Twitter, Meek Mill caught the attention of Rick Ross, signed to the MCâ€™s Maybach Music Group, and appeared on the labelâ€™s Self Made, Vol. 1 compilation prior to releasing his first proper studio album. ~ Andy KellmanPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
