Meek Mill is being more realistic and heads back to school. On Friday (Jan. 22), the Philadelphia native visited Overbrook High School to encourage students to stay in school and get an education. During his speech he revealed that he has enrolled in college.
“I just enrolled in college myself,” he told the students. “I took it upon myself to do that because I want to be the best at what I do. I want to be the best at what I do so I enrolled in college to educate myself, get myself more knowledge because knowledge make money, being educated makes you money and I like making money and taking care of my family.”
Meek also told to students to focus more on themselves and their families. “Nicki Minaj, Drake ain’t gon’ benefit ya’ll,” he said. “When I was your age, I never had a chance to talk to Jay Z, I never had a chance to talk to Beanie Sigel to ask them how can I get there.”
Going to college is a great image for Meek and it might make the judge be a little lenient on him when he goes to his Feb. 5 sentencing for parole violations.
