After her husband's death, Kathy and her children moved to North Philadelphia where they lived in a three-bedroom apartment on Berks Street. They didn't have a lot of money, so Kathy started cutting hair, doing odd jobs, and shoplifting to support her family. As a kid, Meek was shy. Meek's uncle on his father's side was the pioneering DJ Grandmaster Nell, who was part of the later 1980s, Philadelphia hip-hop scene and influenced Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff.
When Meek was a teenager, he often took part in rap battles under the pseudonym Meek Millz. He stayed up well past midnight writing phrases and verses in notebooks to use later. He and three friends formed the rap group The Blooodhoundz. They bought blank CDs and jewel cases and encouraged friends to burn the group's songs on them and give them out. At 18, Meek was arrested for illegally possessing a firearm when he was stopped walking to a corner store while armed. He was beaten by the police until his lips and both eyes were swollen. One of his braids was also ripped out. The two cops gave a statement saying he chased them with a gun and tried to kill them. He was put on probation.
