Meek Mill isn’t getting off the trolling block anytime soon, especially with his $250k feature charge tweet. The rapper has been topping headlines over his recent tweets, which have led to a series of explanations. Check out the latest.

Meek Mill Shares His Take On His $250k Charge For Features

Meek began the new year by cooking up some smooth lyrics with Fivio Foreign for the track “Same 24,” and since then, the rapper has remained somewhat active on social media. Earlier this week, the Maybach Music alum made a post about the fee he charges for a feature.

“Every time I do a verse, I charge $250k and up. If you’ve got $150k on sight and I like the song, we can swap it outtt!!!!”

Fans refused to see the humility in Meek’s $250 feature charge tweet. A handful of them argued that it was an unreasonable fee. HotNewHipHop picked out a comment that read:

“If you spend $250,000 on a guest verse, you’d need to generate roughly 75 million streams just to break even on that expense — assuming you own 100 percent of the record. Add production and engineering costs, and that break-even line rises.”

Without wasting time, Meek corrected the fan, thereby stating why the $250k feature charge was commensurate with the job done.

In his words:

“Nah, it’s brand swapping. Some of these artists need other platforms to get their point across, and I offer them data and fanbase opportunities along with mass marketing. I have 50 million followers with real engagement… You can get good playlisting with a solid Meek feature!”

Lately, the rapper has been on standby, ready to clarify his statements whenever they are taken out of context. Not long ago, Meek inquired about how Africans listened to his songs. However, many believed it was an insulting question that referenced Africans as being backward. Following the backlash, Meek explained that he was merely concerned because he did not have a contract for his music to be played on the continent.
