It’s Time: Meek Mill Open Up About What Fatherhood Means To Him In Open Letter !!!
Meek Mill, the self proclaimed chaser of dreams , opens up about his greatest contribution to his of his career was giving his son the life.
In an open letter to TIME, the MMG rapper expresses how it felt being raised by a single mother and he speaks on the difficulty leaving his son behind to tour but not before explaining to baby Rihmeek that he does it all for him.
“When you see how much one person can trust you, look up to you, and depend on you, the last thing you want to do is disappoint them,” he said. “The fact that no one can teach you how to be a father means you are always learning on the job. Before I leave, I always explain to him that everything I do, I do for him. All the shows, all the nights in the studio, I do with my son in mind. It doesn’t make it any easier, but I’m blessed to be in the financial situation that I’m in. I’m grateful I don’t have to think twice about whether there is going to be food on his table.”
“When I was younger, I remember being able to speak to my father and then in the blink of an eye, he was gone,” he said. “My mom played the role of both mom and dad. I still miss my dad, and I always will. Growing up without a father made me realize just how special time is with my son and how much of an impact I can have on his life.”
Meek adds that fatherhood is afterall a pivotal role he’ll play to help develop his child into an adult.
“I love my son with all my heart, and I would do anything for him,” he said. “It’s a crazy feeling knowing that I will help him become a great man.”
