Meek Mill Faces Online Backlash After Bold $100 Million Claim

Meek Mill has found himself entangled in online controversy as he engaged with fans questioning the legitimacy of his assertion that he has earned over $100 million throughout his career.

The saga unfolded on Thursday (January 25) when the Dreams & Nightmares rapper made the bold statement on X (formerly Twitter).

“I made over 100m in my life…I feed my community my family and change laws that send black and brown men to prison systematically…and I been on a 10 year success rate of the 1% of black men…why should they listen to you lol,” he wrote.

In response to a fan challenging the authenticity of the claim, the Philadelphia native stood firm. “Why are people so judgmental with nothing going on in their lives positive? I need answers, it’s some real crab in the barrel people pushing this tear your own people down narrative…it’s like looting your own community…focusing on yourself is very rewarding!”

This incident marks not the first time Meek has found himself amidst online controversy.

Just last week, Meek posed what he thought was an innocent question on X. “Do a lot of people play my music in South Africa? I remember having one big show there [sic] a few years back…how do y’all listen to our music in South Africa? On what platform or in Nigeria?” he asked.

The responses were quick and harsh, with numerous African fans feeling offended by Meek’s implication that the continent was technologically regressive.

“Well, it depends on the season. In summer we hear it through the trunk of an elephant. In spring, the giraffes catch signal and play it out loud. You get me?” wrote one commenter.

“Normally we use rocks, but on a good day, we use trees or we get one person to sing for the whole village,” commented another user.

“On a good day, we climb the mountain to listen to the forest play your music. On days when it’s rainy, we go down the nearest river, and a mermaid comes out to sing your songs. We have only one computer here in my village, so it was my turn to tweet. [praying hands emoji] will hear from me next year,” read another comment.
