PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Robert Rihmeek Williams, known better as rapper Meek Mill, was honored by Philadelphia City Council on Thursday.
A council resolution described the 31-year-old entertainer raised in North Philadelphia as a critically acclaimed multiplatinum hip-hop artist, songwriter, entrepreneur, actor, and criminal justice advocate.”
The resolution said since 2007, Mill had been entrapped in the criminal justice system because of technical probation violations.
Mill was originally convicted in 2008 for drug dealing and firearm possession. He spent eight months in jail then released on five years parole.
