Meek Mill Is Everywhere: Ten Places We Never Expected to See the Maybach Music MC

Where in hell did Meek Mill come from?

Of course, we know the literal answer to that question: Mill was born Robert Williams, grew up in Philadelphia, and spent his rookie season as an MC under the wing of rapper T.I.'s Grand Hustle imprint before ultimately aligning with Ricky Rozay's Maybach Music stable.

The question has more to do with the 25-year-old rapper's sudden and very intense ubiquity. Meek Mill is absolutely everywhere. There he is, in the linen closet, in the breakfast nook, under the bed. The man will not stop until your media intake -- and, really, your general experience as a human -- is completely saturated by his very being.

Given that he's all over the place, you'd think we wouldn't be surprised to find him in some shocking spots, but here are ten places we definitely didn't expect to see Meek Mill.

10. Sharing the stage with Drake, Nicki Minaj, Snoop Dogg, Rick Ross, and Waka Flocka Flame.
Williams was one of numerous rappers who made cameos during Drake's performance at the Ovo Festival in Toronto in early August. A quick scan of the guest list confirms Mill definitely collected the most piggyback points.

9. The courthouse.
Our boy who lives in South Philly was leaving a court hearing for looting a water ice stand following a Phillies victory (or defeat, we can't remember), and guess who he ran into? Meek Mill! The artist was getting mad flack for rapping about Philly district attorney Noel Ann DeSantis, who promptly issued a motion ordering Mr. Mill to STFU.

8. A video on YouTube promoting his donation to an injured biker's stem cell surgery. Meek Mill is not only a philanthropist. He is also the most specifically generous rapper we've ever encountered. Which, BTW, is a trait that'll get you some traction on Google.
