Recording artist Meek Mill used to be in the shadow of his Maybach Music Group boss, Rick Ross. But over the last few years, the “Dreams and Nightmares” recording artist has been standing right next to him in the light.
Now the artist is able to flex a little like the Florida entrepreneur, buying toys of the same caliber as the person who put him in the game.
In 2017, the Philadelphia rapper was incarcerated and released after approximately one year behind bars. Between the time of his being locked up and September 2019, Meek was able to earn $20 million between his music, real estate and endorsement deals with brands such as Amazon and Puma, making him one of the highest-earning rappers in the culture.
His stock also has skyrocketed over the last few years, as a result of his hard work and hobnobbing with Jay-Z, former Philadelphia 76ers owner Michael Rubin and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft during the 2019 launch of his REFORM Alliance nonprofit.
Meek even was able to boss up and do business with Ross, selling him a house in Buckhead for $4.2 million.
Big Money Toys
So, in hip-hop, with big money comes big games.
Days after Rick Ross purchased a new Maybach off the lot, Meek reportedly purchased one also.
He shared it with the public on Wednesday, Sept. 13 in a couple of videos on his TikTok. What made his purchase unique is that he received the first delivery of Virgil’s Haute Voiture Maybach on the East Coast. The Mercedes S-Class was the brainchild of the late Virgil Abloh’s Project Maybach.
He even debuted an unreleased new song where he mentions the car, rapping, “Louis Virgil got the soft fabric/ Virgil Maybach looking like it got some Timbs on it/ Equity on the back and then in the front I want Ms on it.”
But this is not the only big-boy vehicle he has in his personal approximately $2 million fleet.
He has a matte black Aston Martin Rapide S, that is worth $210,000. This car is made for power with a turbocharged V12 engine and a beautiful exterior.
The car is just as impressive as his other $230,000 Maybach S-Class, one that also has a V12 engine and is just as sleek.
In his stash, he has a Bentley Flying Spur with a 6.0L twin-turbo W12 engine and a Lamborghini Urus with a twin-turbo V8 engine, both worth $270,000.
Meek has a Rolls-Royce Cullinan that cost him $350,000. The car has a 12-cylinder engine that makes 563 hp paired with a smooth transmission and all-wheel drive, and is impressive to any car fanatic.
But his most extraordinary purchase is a Rolls-Royce Ghost, with a super-refined turbocharged V12 engine that makes 563 hp of power, reportedly costing him $430,000.
Even with all of this, Rick Ross remains his big brother, probably smiling at his new whip, and saying it is not messing with what he has on just his Georgia property.
Overall, in the vehicle department, Ross has a private jet called Maybach Airlines and so many vehicles to include Mercedes-Benz, Ferrari, Rolls-Royce, Chevrolet and Lamborghini that he has his own car show on his Promise Land property that he charges people to attend.
So popular is his car show that a fan parachuted into it just so he could see the collection.
Meek, too, is getting some looks, starting with his TikTok videos he has shared of his new ride.
