Meek Mill is learning from Jay-Z and it’s starting to show. Hov had been encouraging rappers to spend their money wisely for quite some time now and as a result, Meek is embracing that same attitude.

The Philadelphia rapper who once glorified materialism in his raps has clearly matured.

In his latest album Championships, the growth in Meek’s character is evident. On the track “What’s Free” featuring Jay-Z and Rick Ross, the trio of rappers took a more enlightening and uplifting approach. They spoke on ownership, prosperity, and encouragement rather than speaking on Rollie watches, luxury cars, and expensive jewelry.

He’s now inspiring other rappers to adopt the same mind frame for 2019. On Christmas Eve, the ex-battle rapper went to Twitter to issue his new challenge.

Of course, Meek Mill and Jay-Z had been friends prior to Meek’s incarceration and Jay was also a strong advocate of Meek while he sat in, jail, but their relationship seemed to get closer. Over the weekend, Meek posted a picture of Jay-Z, Fabolous and himself at a partying in NYC at Dusse Palooza. Later on, he revealed that Jay gave him one of the Roc Nation chains he wore around his neck.
