There is no question that Meek Mill has had a share of his ups and downs in these past few years. From facing multiple years of incarceration to his legal battles against lawmakers in his home city of Philly. It’s no surprise, however, that the Meek has not only managed to resurrect his career but make a huge boss move that would make both of his mentors Rick Ross and Jay-Z proud.
With an impended release of his new hat line through Lids, Meek Mill has also become a Co-Owner of the multi-store brand.
According to HipHopDX, Meek had this to say about his new business endeavor.
“I’ve always been a fan of Lids – growing up, I remember buying their hats to match my outfits and look my best,” Mill said via press release. “It’s amazing to see my relationship with the brand come full-circle and have the opportunity to evolve as a businessman. We have a great team in place and we’re looking forward to taking Lids to new heights.”
The new hat line is scheduled to roll out in August. Meek Mill joined the ownership group for Lids after it was acquired by Fanatics and Ames Watson back in February.
Lids CEO, Tom Ripley, commented further on the partnership.
“The Lids design team is thrilled to collaborate with Meek Mill. He is a true original artist with an incredible sense of fashion. Meek’s first line of hats will be unique and the first of many ways we work together.”
