People are left wondering if Meek Mill’s really charges over $62,000 per bar or $1 million per song circulate, according to Complex.

Meek Mill initially disclosed his payday on Instagram on Nov. 20.

Perhaps Meek Mill, whose real name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, and whose net worth is estimated as $20 million, was expecting his post to be perceived as a power move. But, it only led to ridicule.

While some artists exchange verses with their collaborators for free, others have seized the opportunity to monetize their features. In the past, rappers tended to keep their feature rates a secret, but in recent years, a growing number of artists have opted for transparency, openly discussing the substantial income they generate from these collaborations.

For exmaple, DaBaby started out charging $5,000 but with his fame growing, within three years he started charging $300,000, Complex reported.

Meek’s Money

Having joined Rick Ross’ Maybach Music in 2011, the Philadelphia native has experienced notable success in the mainstream. His initial album, “Dreams and Nightmares” (2012), notched a significant No. 2 spot on the Billboard 200 chart, pivotal in propelling him into the spotlight.

As Finurah previously reported, on Nov. 10, the “Too Good to Be True” album featuring Meek Mill and Ross was anticipated to achieve an estimated 30,000 – 35,000 units in its first week, which fell short of certain fans’ expectations.

In addition to his collaborations with Rick Ross, Meek Mill has produced successful songs with Drake, T.I., Birdman, Lil Wayne, and DJ Khaled, and co-headlined a tour with Future. 

His fourth solo studio album, “Championships” (2018), made a noteworthy entrance at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album’s lead single, “Going Bad” featuring Drake, reached its pinnacle at No. 6, securing Meek Mill’s highest-charting position on Billboard’s Rhythmic Songs chart up to the present.
