Meek Mill has revealed he continually reminds himself of his “cornrow Meek” days to keep himself motivated.
The Dream Chasers boss posted a photo on Instagram on Tuesday (March 21) showing him in the studio watching an old video of himself on the TV.
In his caption, the Philly native said turning back the clock and revisiting footage of when he was “broke” keeps the fire in his belly lit.
“I watch myself broke so I can regain that same feel I felt when I was hitttttt,” he wrote.

Prior to signing to Rick Ross’ MMG and becoming the star that fans know today, Meek Mill made a name for himself as vicious battle rapper in Philadelphia.
At that time, Meek was hustling heavily in the streets while serving up ferocious rhymes in cyphers, freestyles and rap battles, as well as his Flamerz mixtape series.
It seems that watching old footage has done the trick as Meek has been locked in the studio lately putting in work. Last week, the 35-year-old reunited in the studio with his label boss Rick Ross to work on new music.
Both rappers posted clips and photos from their studio session on social media. Rozay hinted at a collaboration arriving “very soon,” while Meek called their in-studio reunion “perfect timing.”
“Getting money fuck the fame/ Ever since n-ggas called me I can’t trust the same/ You been in my back and put mud all in your brother name/ I’m gonna get you back because you know Cardo don’t play no fucking games/ All in the open with that .30 on me let it aim,” Meek rapped on the unreleased song.
Meek Mill also recently dished out a new freestyle while ignoring the rules of the road from behind the wheel of his Rolls Royce Cullinan.
Usually, there wouldn’t be anything wrong with rapping while driving, but Meek appeared to take his eyes off the road several times to look at the cameraman filming him. In his caption, Meek called the freestyle “Cullinan Slides Vol. 1,” a reference to both the car he was driving and his apparent knack for switching lanes.
Meek Mill released his last project Flamerz 5 in November, and in keeping with the spirit of his flagship series, it was available exclusively on mixtape websites like DatPiff and AudioMack, as opposed to major streaming services.
