Meek Mill will donate more than 6,000 backpacks to school students in Philadelphia. Meek was released from prison earlier this year after he served five months of a two to four-year sentence for violating the terms of his parole.
All of this had to do with a drug and weapons conviction dating back in 2008.
Now, Meek has joined forces with Puma, sports apparel Fanatics, United Legwear and Philadelphia’s luxury store Milano Di Rogue.
He will deliver the essential school supplies to students in the city.
TMZ reported that children will get sharpeners, rulers, glue sticks and crayons and the high school kids will get dry erase markers, notebooks, and pens.
‘Those memories stay with me, and that’s why I’m committed to giving back to families in my hometown, putting smiles on kids’ faces and helping them start the school year on the right note with the right supplies,’Meek told TMZ.
Latest reports also claimed that there might be something going on between Meek and Nicki Minaj.
MediaTakeOut confirmed via a ‘close friend’ of the female emcee that ‘Yes they see each other.’
‘Their breakup was hard and at times ugly. But hey always loved each other,’ the insider explained.
‘[Jay Z] has been telling Meek about how important it is to have a strong and successful woman by your side. I think that got to Meek,’ the same source added.
The inside wanted to highlight the fact that they are ‘taking it slowly.’
