RACIST ATTACK PROMPTS MEEK MILL'S GENEROUS GESTURE

A year ago, Meek's grandmother's house was vandalized by someone who scrawled racist messages on the walls.

Since then, Meek hasn't felt at ease, and on November 29 he revealed on Instagram that he'd "fixed" the problem. He wrote:

“(expletive) ….. that (expletive) my grandmom throwing up. Got her a new crib built from the floor up wit a elevator in it not a gang sign lol.”

MEEK MILL GIVES BACK TO THE COMMUNITY

Meek has always been active in the community, and his generosity doesn't end with his grandmother.

His troubled past has prompted him to strive to reform the criminal justice system that has led to so many black men being unjustly convicted.

Meek has announced that the proceeds of the sales of the first hat he designed for Lids will be donated towards that cause.

MEEK MILL'S GRANDMOTHER'S HOUSE VANDALISED

The act that prompted Meek Mill to buy his grandmother a new home happened a year ago.

Meek filed a report with the Philadelphia police after someone tagged his grandmother's house with a racist slur.

He shared a surveillance video that showed a light-skinned man writing the word "ACORN" on the wall of the house.  Acorn is local slang for "white privilege," and is most commonly used among Neo-Nazi groups.

Meek's grandmother is only one of a series of similar incidents targeting black people living in "gentrified" areas of Philadelphia.
