Some Canadian rappers are known to develop the bad habit of reinventing lyrics and stage names. At age 23, Canadian rapper Milli Millz and Philadelphia native Meek Millz are on a rise to dominate the industry. With the rap industry currently at grabs for stage name, it's kinda puzzling that Canadian rapper Milli Millz's stage name was pulled from a stage name given to Philly native Meek Millz at age 14/15. In a interview with MTV News, the rapper "Meek Millz" reveals how his stage name was created:
"I was using that rap name when I was like 14, 15. But then, as I got older, 18, I started being in the streets. I ain't calling myself no millionaire running around the streets and I'm hurting, so I just ended up cutting it short to 'Meek Mill,' and I left it at that,"
Currently unknown is how the Canadian rapper Milli Millz came up with his stage name.
