Meek Mill isn't as hot on the court as he is in the booth.
Basketball is not a sport that anyone can play. It requires a lot of hand-eye coordination and agility. While there are many rappers who simultaneously are as good in ball as they are on the court. Artists like Dave East, Chris Brown, Quavo and even Justin Bieber have proven there abilties on the court. However, many other rappers probably have a better chance joining a recreational league than ever being able to make it in the NBA. We've seen it before with Drake, Lil Yachty and DJ Khaled as well. Today, TMZ reports there is another rapper to add to this list.
This weekend, Philly's Meek Mill made his way over to James Harden's JH-Town charity game where he was seen on the court. He flopped heavy at the three-point line, shooting a few shots to only get airballs. He was seen earlier this week hanging out with Chris Paul and James Harden at the game, so maybe at some point the two ball players gave the Philly rapper one or two pointers to improve his threes.
This whole thing is relatively funny considering a few years back, Meek's arch-nemesis Drake was seen at the Kentucky Wildcats warm-up with the same kind of form as Meek. Looks like they aren't as different as they think they are.
In all seriousness, despite the Internet's cruelty Meek has survived worse. Late last week, news broke out that Meek Mill was arrested for reckless endangerment. It later turned out that the Philly rapper charges were later dropped and later made a statement to the press.
It has no doubt been a pretty eventful few days for Meek Mill. He's currently promoting his latest album Wins & Losses. He also made an appearance on A$AP Ferg's Still Striving project for the mixtape's intro track.
While Meek Mill was caught slipping on his basketball game, it was ultimately for a good cause. The charity game was for James Hardens' Lucky 13 scholarship and internship program. The program is meant to "assists Houston Metropolitan Area high school students on track to being first generation college students. The program is dedicated to high school juniors and seniors with an interest in post-secondary education."
