Time for Change: Meek Mill Enrolls in College

By: Anny Jules 

It’s public knowledge that Meek Mill suffered through quite a few L’s last year. But it seems that he is ready to turn over a new leaf now that it is a new year. 



After donating $50,000 to bring clean water to Flint, Michigan, Meek visited Overbook High School in his hometown in Philadelphia and made the surprise announcement that he is enrolled in college. 



Meek made the announcement as his way of encouraging the students to stay in school and pursue higher education to better themselves. 


“I just enrolled in college myself,” said Meek. “I took it upon myself to do that because I want to be the best at what I do. I want to be the best at what I do so I enrolled in college to educate myself, get myself more knowledge because knowledge make money, being educated makes you money and I like making money and taking care of my family.”



He added, “DC4, Nicki Minaj, Drake ain’t gon’ benefit ya’ll,” he joked. “When I was your age, I never had a chance to talk to Jay Z, I never had a chance to talk to Beanie Sigel to ask them how can I get there.”

Meek did not reveal what he is studying in college but we applaud him for continuing his education. It’s never too late!
