When Hip-Hop artists does something negative it is the worse thing in the entire world, leaving the artist to face a lot of scrutiny from the world, including making the front cover of every newspaper and website but when they do something positive, most of the time, it get overlooked. Apparently, that’s NOT the issue when it comes to me. I am a fan of Hip-Hop and stand by the artists when they do something negative or positive. With the being said, Maybach Music Group rapper Meek Mill went back home to Philadelphia earlier in the week, to give back to Strawberry Mansion High School. Mill and Reebok donated sneakers, gym bags, socks, snapbacks and tee shirts to the boys and girls basketball team.

My childhood friend Dez Baker is an English teacher at the predominantly African-American high school. Just a few minutes ago, I phoned him to get the exclusive.

It was a real phenomenal event that took place at the high school Meek Mill once attended. He gave the basketball teams sneakers, gym bags, socks, snapbacks and tee shirts. It was good to see someone who the kids idolize and look up to in the Hip-Hop community to come back to his former high school and give back. When Mill came out, the kids were screaming to the top of their lungs,” said Dez Baker.

We would like to thank Reebok and Meek Mill for donating to our high school basketball teams,” added Dez Baker.
