Video: Meek Mill - 'Glow Up'
Meek Mill celebrates his “Glow Up.”
In honor of his 30th birthday, the Philadelphia rapper flew from Miami to the Dominican Republic, filming a music video for his latest single in the process.
Directed by Will Ngo, the fun-filled clip begins with some serious reflections from Mill. “I never thought I’d turn 30,” he says. “When you’re 17, you be like, ‘I wondered what I’m gon’ be like when I’m 30…Matter fact, don’t even think about it. You ain’t turnin’ 30. You’ll probably get killed.’ That’s how I always used to think and now, we’re here. I’m turning 30 on a jet, 30,000 feet in the air.”
Sporting a “Goal Digger” hoodie, Meek poses with friends in front of his jet. He also counts his money, flosses his diamonds, and answers phone calls in the middle of the video.
When he finally arrives in the D.R., he’s greeted by a birthday sign and local musicians, who prompt him to show off his dance moves. From there, he cools out in a pool full of lovely women, living up the big 3-0.
Right before the vibrant visual dropped, Meek found himself in legal trouble once again, when he was sued for inciting violence in Wallingford, Connecticut.
In December, two people died and two others were injured outside of a Mill concert at the Toyota Oakdale Theater. The family of 31-year-old Travis Ward, who was injured at the show, is suing Meek and the club for unspecified damages, according to TMZ.
The lawsuit cites Meek’s “Tony Montana (Freestyle)” lyrics as part of the case. “Ak-47 picture perfect like a camera,” Mill raps on the track. “I point it at your homie leave ’em stinkin’ like a pamper / Fuck what you drinkin’, fuck what you thinkin’ / This 40 hit your homie, leave that ni**a plankin’.”
Up next, Mill is heading out on the “Against All Odds Tour” with Yo Gotti and YFN Lucci, starting July 5 in Cleveland.
