The rapper, in an editorial he wrote for Time.com, has detailed the joys of being a father and the responsibility he places on himself as a dad. ‘As a father, now I get to give my son the life I never had. Being able to give him anything he wants is one of the best feelings in the world, but it’s alsoscary,’ he wrote. ‘The fact that no one can teach you how to be a father means you are always learning on the job. I love my son with all my heart, and I would do anything for him. ‘It’s a crazy feeling knowing that I will help him become a great man.’ Meek also detailed his own childhood and says that his mom acted both as his father and mother. Like many single mothers, she worked as hard as she could to provide for her children. He recalled that when he was younger he was able to speak to his father for only a short while, when he said: ‘When I was younger, I remember being able to speak to my father and then in the blink of an eye, he was gone. ‘My mom played the role of both mom and dad. We had nothing growing up, so my mom worked any job she could find to provide for me and my sister. ‘I love her so much for that. But as much as I appreciated everything my mother did for me, she couldn’t fill the space that a father should hold in a child’s life. Meek Mill grew up without a father in his life and he wants to make sure that change for his own son.
