Over the weekend, Meek Mill caught backlash for posting a video to his Instagram Stories, where he gave a group of boys selling water in Atlanta $20 to split between themselves.
As social media users pointed out, Meek was driving in a car worth $400,000 and there seemed to be around 8 boys to split the $20, which equals out to be $2.50 per kid. On Sunday evening, Meek started trending over the situation, which led to a debate online, with some people calling the rapper cheap, and others questioning why he was obligated to give them a large amount of money. Meek then responded to the critics, writing, “They appreciated it. They just kids hustling.”
