Meek Mill is an American rapper, songwriter, and activist who has a net worth of $20 million

Since he made his debut as a professional rapper in 2003, Meek Mill has come to represent two major aspects of pop culture conversation – hip hop and social justice. While the latter has seen him spend time in jail, the former has made Meek Mill a rich man, building an impressive net worth from his few critically acclaimed albums.

With a reputation as one of the last of a dying breed of old-school hip hop rappers, Meek Mill has continued to command mainstream relevance and the resulting accumulation of wealth suggests there is still a significant market for his style of music.

Meek Mill’s Substantial Net Worth and the Various Ways he Made it

Among the wealthiest personalities in the world and even in his industry, Meek Mill’s net worth is what many would call chomp change. But to the regular person, his $20 million wealth size is nothing to sneer at. The rapper’s wealth comes from more than one and a half decade’s work as a professional rapper, earning via album sales, tours and concerts, as well as brand endorsements.

He Has Sold More Than Three Million Album Copies

Meek Mill began rapping when he was a teenager. At the time, he was a battle rapper and was part of a rap group, The Bloodhoundz. With the group, Mill released four mixtapes, but his album sale successes did not begin until he was a solo rapper. Despite an initial meeting with T.I’s label, Grand Hustle Records, Mill signed with Rick Ross’ label, Maybach Music Group.

His debut album, Dreams & Nightmares, dropped on October 30, 12. The album peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200, selling more than 165,000 copies in its first week. The album benefited from an overwhelmingly positive critical review, and after four years, in May 2016, it was certified Gold, having sold more than 500,000 copies.

Since his debut piece, Meek Mill has released three more albums, Dreams Worth More Than Money, Wins & Losses, Championships, all reaching the top 5 the Billboard 200. Combined, they have sold more than three million copies, with his most recent effort, Championships, selling more than one million alone.

While album sales are often not a significant contributor to a musician’s net worth, Meek Mill’s three million-plus sales is undoubtedly a substantial source of his $20 million wealth size.

Multiple Successful Singles, Mixtapes, and Collaborations

Other noteworthy contributors to the rapper’s wealth are singles, mixtapes, LPs, and features. Since he became a professional musician, he has released more than ten mixtapes. Although a few of them were self-released and did not sell a significant number of copies, three of them have been successful. All three are a part of his Dreamchasers series, and they all had millions of downloads across several mixtapes hosting websites.

His singles have also been a significant contributor to his wealth. Meek Mill has sold more than 16 million singles, with songs like Going Bad, Dangerous, Whatever You Need, All Eyes on You, Ima Boss, Amen, Young & Getting’ It, Levels, and more. His collaborations with other artists, like Future, Rick Ross, Drake, DJ Khaled, have equally been successful, fetching him a decent source of revenue.

In total, Meek Mill’s $20 million net worth, has come from a discography with more than 35 singles, 11 mixtapes, five EPs, three collaborative albums, four studio albums, one compilation album, and ten promotional singles. All of them have reportedly earned him more than $13 million in revenue.

Musically, another source of income for the rapper is touring. He has headlined two tours, Dreamchasers Tour and Motivation Tour, and was a co-headliner with Future for the Legendary Nights Tour.

Lastly, Meek Mill has expanded his income source beyond his work as an artist and into being a record executive. He owns a label, Dream Chasers Records, established in October 2012. The label is a joint partnership with Roc Nation and has more than five acts under it.

Brand Endorsements

Brand partnerships and endorsements are more ways Meek Mill has earned his impressive net worth. The rapper has a string of endorsements with brands like Ciroc, Ethika, Monster, Puma, and Skullcandy. His most notable endorsement deal was with the German lifestyle and footwear brand, Puma. The deal, signed in 2012, was the brand’s first major foray into hip hop culture.

The deal earned Meek $1 million and beyond the financial returns for the rapper, it has proved successful for the brand too. The brand has expanded to other notable personalities like Rae Sremmurd, Rihanna and Kylie Jenner.

A Lavish But Tempered Spender

Meek Mill’s lifestyle matches the popular brand of the quintessential hip hop rapper. Blings, clubs, expensive clothing et al. But in a measured manner. At least, that is what casual observation suggests. Details about the rapper’s expenses are, at the moment, scarce. However, we know from observing his public persona, through platforms like Instagram and Twitter, that the rapper lives comfortably. Still, he keeps his extravagant and lavish spending to a minimum.

An example of this was in 2016, back when he was dating fellow rapper, Nicki Minaj. Meek Mill and Nicki, rather than buy, rented a Beverly Hills mansion for $35,000 a month. A more economical option, considering their relationship ended two years after.

We also know the rapper prefers spending his millions on family, according to a viral tweet in 2020, when he questioned rappers who spent lavishly on friends and women.

 

However, one expense that has taken a chunk of Meek Mill’s net worth is legal fees. The rapper has a well-documented history with the legal system and in more than a decade, has spent up to $30 million on legal defence, according to a report by Rolling Stone.

Here are Some of The Best Highlights of His Career:

  • Flamers (2008)
  • Flamers 2: Hottest In That City (2009)
  • Mr. Philadelphia (2010)
  • Dreamchasers (2011)
  • Dreamchasers 2 (2012)
  • Dreams and Nightmares (2012)
  • Dreams Worth More Than Money (2015)
  • 4/4 (2016)
  • Meekend Music (2017)
  • Wins & Losses (2017)
  • Championships (2018)
  • Motivation Tour (2019)
  • Legendary Nights Tour (with Future) (2019)

Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Meek Mill

The early exposure to hip hop for Meek Mill was through his uncle. He was a disc-jockey in the late 80s and went by the stage name, Grandmaster Nell. His work as a DJ did inspire not only Meek Mill but also influenced other big acts like Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff.

2. Meek Mill is an Activist

Activism is not a name commonly associated with hip hop rappers, at least not in the traditional sense of the word. But Meek Mill’s decades-long experience with the U.S justice system has caused him to go beyond his music and become a leading advocate for criminal justice reform. He is a co-founder of the REFORM Alliance Foundation, along with Jay-Z.

3. He Gets into Plenty of Feuds

Since he achieved stardom with his debut album, he has been in a feud with more than ten rappers, including Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, Nicki Minaj, The Game, and Drake. His feud with Drake is the most popular, spanning two years, and brewing several songs. The two buried their beef in 2018, after his release from prison.
