While speaking with HipHopSince1987 at the Dreamchasers Sports & Entertainment Summit, an event that brings â€œtogether some of the biggest names in both sports and entertainment,â€ Meek gave fans a look into his business mindset as he shared that heâ€™s more concerned with competition rather than money.
â€œMan, I just like to make money. I got family to take care of,â€ the Philly lyricist revealed. â€œI like working. I like building things from the bottom. So, itâ€™s competition to me. It ainâ€™t really all about the money. Itâ€™s really competition. No matter if we playing checkers, soccer, dirt bikes, [wheeling], whatever it is. I just like building things and getting better.â€
Prior to addressing his entrepreneurial side, Meek explained why he chose to start the Dreamchasers Sports & Entertainment Summit.
â€œI just wanted to put something together motivational for Philadelphia. We never really had these things and Iâ€™m one of the newest cats that came out of here on his way to success,â€ said Meek. â€œSo, I just wanted to bring some energy back this way and put people on game with what it takesâ€”in a successful world.â€
On top of appearing at his sports and entertainment-inspired summit, Meek will also soon be releasing his much-anticipated Dreamchasers 3 mixtape. During his interview, the Dreams And Nightmares rapper spoke briefly on the project as he commented on Dreamchasers 3 being a mixtape that will infiltrate the clubs and the streets while also â€œtouching the ladies.â€
Despite a Fall 2013 release, the cover art for Meekâ€™s Dreamchasers 3 mixtape was released at the top of the year and since that time the release date for the project has been pushed back several times.
After a brief stint at T.I.â€™s Grand Hustle Records, Meek Mill signed to Maybach Music Group in February 2011 and has gone on to release his debut album and a handful of other projects while signed to MMG.
