Are people trying to paint Meek Mill as a cheapskate?
First, Philly rapper Poundside Pop said that Meek gave him a lowball offer to sign with DreamChasers. Then on Sunday, Dec. 6, the Championships spitter was trending on Twitter after he was seen giving $20 to a group of kids in Atlanta who were selling water.
Some said that Meek was wrong for only giving the kids $20 to split considering he seems far from broke. But others said the Philly rapper wasn't obligated to give anything, so the kids should've been happy to get the $20.
Meek eventually responded to the chatter on Twitter.
They appreciated it they just hustling kids ..... https://t.co/QzUhJejGl0— Meek Mill (@MeekMill) December 6, 2020
“They appreciated it. They just kids hustling," he wrote.
Do you think Meek should have given the kids more money or no? Twitter is killing him for it.

Meek Mill can do whatever he wants with his $20, but he put those kids on his Instagram video, calling them “Runtz” for the world to see. I hope everyone comes for Meek on this one, cause he’s lame as hell for it.— Tanner Rahl (@RahlTanner) December 7, 2020
