Meek Mill is doing great things. The celebrity father recently spent thousands to help underprivileged kids return to school in style.
More than 6,000 children in the Philadelphia area recently received backpacks filled with school supplies courtesy of Meek. The rapper is definitely paying it forward as he is a native of the Pennsylvania city. “Thank you to @puma and all volunteers that helped out today,” Mill wrote online after the event. The rapper also shared a series of pictures from the event, which showed him handing out the designer backpacks to grateful children.
Meek’s charitable efforts come months after he was released from prison on what many deem as nothing short of the results of an unjust legal system. Mill was incarcerated for several months and faced a hefty sentence for violating a 10-year probation term, which many said was overrated from the start. There is now reportedly an ongoing investigation with the FBI regarding the judge who sentenced Meek Mill to prison for probation violation.
Meek Mill delved into the effects that his incarceration had on his oldest son, Rihmeek, during a recent interview with Rolling Stone. “The most upsetting part was, my son got suspended when I was arrested and serving time,” Meek revealed.
“My son had never been suspended. He always been doing great in school, and I felt like I was a great failure by being incarcerated. [Not] raising my son was like a big grief to me. It hurt me a lot.” Nevertheless, despite the bump in the road, Rihmeek was one of the first people with whom Meek reunited upon being released from prison.
