More noble acts for his hometown. Philly’s own rapper, Meek Mill, continues to make great strides for himself and young men and women in Philadelphia.
Meek Mill has been a busy man since his prison release this past April. Mill is reportedly teaming up with Roc Nation and PUMA to refurbish a North Philly basketball court near and dear to his heart.
He told TMZ the court was chosen because he wanted to help a park from where he grew up:
“North Philly will always be home. When kids go to East Fairmount Park, they deserve to ball in the best conditions possible, so I’m glad they’ll have that opportunity now.”
At the end of August, Mill appeared at James G. Blaine School in North Philly and brought 6,000 backpacks, filled with school supplies, to give away to students at the school and through the School District of Philadelphia.
It’s been a tremendous run from Mill, and it’s not slowing down: we’re still expecting a Jay-Z-produced documentary about Mill’s experience with the criminal justice system at some point next year.
