Do not underestimate Meek's skills as a gymnast.
It's not out of the ordinary for rappers to venture outside of music into the worlds of film or fashion, but gymnastics is a more or less unexplored lane. Meek Mill may have a future in the sport, or at least in dunking off a trampoline, as he proves in a flawlessly executed front flip performed at the Wells Fargo center in Philadelphia.
In a video posted to his Instagram, Meek joins the Philadelphia 76ers Dunk Squad in the hallway of the arena. After a couple of members from the crew show him how it's done, Meek confidently attempts a front flip off the mini-trampoline, and the landing is a 10/10. "I ain’t scared 😂😂😂 and I’m fried off the 19 lol," Meek captioned the clip, which you can watch above. Judging by the comments on Instagram, his fans found it very entertaining.
Earlier this month, it was reported that Meek's reckless endangerment charge for popping wheelies on his dirt bike in New York city would be wiped from his record. The rapper's attorney shared thoughts on the decision. "This swift resolution vindicates Meek and clearly shows how outrageous the police department's conduct is in this case," he said.
Meek released his third studio album Wins & Losses earlier this year. In an interview with Streetz 94.5 in Atlanta, he explained the meaning of the title. "I'm letting the people know how I feel right now," he said. "I just wanted to give people a real perspective of my life, what we call wins and what we call losses. I lost my case, we lost Lil Snupe, Chino lost his brother. Where we come from, that's a loss. When you talk Ls and Ws, you get an L, that mean you got life in jail. It's critical, it ain't what they talking about, so I wanted to give my perspective on it, let people know what I've been through." Teh album features guest appearances from teh likes of Rick Ross, Chris Brown, T Dolla $ign, Future, Young Thug, Chris Brown, Lil Uzi Vert, Yo Gotti, and more. Stream the project in its entirety here.
