The Philadelphia born Hip Hop act took to his official Twitter account to reveal that he came from a very poor background and grew up a less privileged kid.
Meek also said that to survive, he had to sell drugs in school, although he has on several occasions in recent years advised against doing or dealing drugs.
According to him, the neighborhood he lived in as a kid was scarier than what one has seen in movies.
”I grew up in poverty ….
”My hood worst than a scary movie…this is everyday!
I was selling crack in like the 5th grade …. free greasy doe!’‘ he tweeted.
