WBM Presents: A one on one with MEEK MILL (Phillies own)

"I like my Rose Red and my Diamonds Blue"
Meek Mill

When you think about Philly and Hip hop, you think Freeway, Eve, Cassidy etc... Though all have had respectable careers, Philly is still not seen as a city known for it's talent in music.

After a friend showed me "Rose Red" by Meek Mills and his remix with T.I and Rick Ross, I had to meet him. I traveled to Philly last week to interview Meek in very cold weather. Meek pulled up and walked towards me in his blue bomber jacket and dark denim jeans. He cut his hair since the "Rose Red" video which made him a bit unrecognizable. Meek is tall, dark, and handsome. He is a bit intimidating because of his laid back demeanor; however he is very respectable, intelligent, and humble. My tape recorder died and he immediately ordered his assistant to go buy a new pack.

Check out my Q and A with this promising young man on South Bank street in the heart of Philadelphia...
