Call him famous, call him infamous -- Philly Native Meek Mill is iconic to the City of Brotherly Love for more than just his Hip Hop stardom.
Meek has become legendary to the Eagles Super Bowl win with his song "Dreams and Nightmares" becoming the anthem of the season. And though the rapper has just recently been released from jail after dealing with stipulation over what truly sent him there-- he's making a different name for himself by giving back to the community that raised him!
According to Philly.com, Meek Mill made an appearance to his Alma Mater in North Philly on Wednesday at James G. Blaine School, where he gave away backpacks filled with school supplies to the students beginning the new year!

Needless to say, Meek is showing love to the City of Brotherly Love, before he makes his grand return to the city for the Made In America Festival this Labor Day Weekend!

Some kids I spoke with said without these bookbags from Meek, they would've just gone without.
