Meek Mill Says Jail Helped Him
Meek Mill was arrested in 2008 on weapons charges, and the Maybach Music Group rapper says that the experience helped him focus and fully realize his hip hop career. He knew that he wanted more than a life of prison and possibly death.
"I'm just a natural hustler. Before anybody even ever heard of me, I had money," he said. "When I got signed, I had $250,000 - I was like 21. I was just a natural born hustler. Before I went to jail, I used to be a slouch. I used to smoke weed; things like that. Get high, hang on corners, play with guns - do a lot of dumb stuff. It took me to sit down in jail one time and use my brain and think. That’s the best thing jail did for me. I sat down and I thought about everything I could possibly do when I got out of there…I had my own little conversation with God, and I feel as though the message that I was sent was, 'If you want to be in the street, this is where you can go [or] you could put your whole life into this rap thing, and you could go somewhere'...I just put my life into it."
