Meek Mill in a hurry to make his mark
Ever since he became the undeniable centerpiece of Rick Ross’s Maybach Music Group, it’s been startling to see how fast things have changed for rapper Meek Mills. When 2011 started, he was on XXL’s Freshman 10 list. When 2012 started, he was No. 7 on MTV’s Hottest MCs list, one spot behind Jay-Z. After releasing his “Dreamchasers” mixtape last year, he dropped the sequel in May and it ran up 1.5 million downloads in six hours. Meek Mill performs at House of Blues on Sunday.
