How much is Meek Mill worth? Meek Mill is worth $1.5 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, and while the 26-year-old MC is far from the richest rapper in the game, he’s amassed his fortune having released only one studio album, “Dreams and Nightmares,” which dropped in 2012. Mill’s net worth is bound to increase once he issues the follow-up, “Dreams Worth More Than Money,” in 2014, and what’s more, he’s the founder of Dream Chasers Records, a business endeavor that promises to bring him even more bank.
Meek Mill’s net worth of $1.5 million is the result of work he’s done since the mid-’00s, when he arrived on the scene with a string of mixtapes. Born Robert Williams on May 6, 1987, the Philadelphia rhymer initially linked up with T.I.’s Grand Hustle imprint, but a 2008 gun conviction sent him to prison for eight months, and that temporarily put his career on hold. After getting out of jail, Mill issued a series of five mixtapes in 12 months, and in 2011 — the same year XXL Magazine included him in its “Freshman Class” issue — he signed with Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group. He appeared on the label’s “Self Made Vol. 1″ compilation that same year, and he’s since rapped on the two follow-ups. With 2012’s “Dreams and Nightmares,” which hit No. 2 on the Billboard 200, he proved himself capable of carrying an album by himself, and in September 2013, he returned with “Dreamchasers 3,” the latest installment in what’s become a popular series.
How much is Meek Mill worth compared to other famous rappers? He’s nowhere near Diddy, Jay Z, or Dr. Dre, who top the 2014 list of the world’s richest rappers with respective fortunes of $700 million, $550 million, and $500 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. He stands a better chance of catching Kid Cudi, who’s sitting on $3.5 million, and Wale, who’s worth $6 million.
