Meek Mill Wants A Piece Of Elon Musk’s $44B Twitter Empire
While Ice Cube hopes to have his shadow ban lifted, Meek Mill has a request of his own for Elon Musk once his mammoth $44 billion Twitter acquisition is complete.
On Thursday (May 5), the Philadelphia-bred rapper publicly asked the current richest person on the planet to open up investment opportunities in the world’s most influential social media platform.
“Elon musk let us invest in Twitter with you ‘big homie,’” Meek tweeted on Thursday (May 5). Musk, who is usually pretty active on Twitter, has yet to respond.

As it stands, Twitter is still a publicly-traded company on the New York Stock Exchange, so Meek Mill can technically own a small slice of the social media giant for roughly $50 a share. However, among the many changes he’s teased, Elon Musk has promised to take Twitter private, meaning people will no longer be able to buy more shares once the sale goes through.
According to Rolling Stone, Musk has had to rely on “a ton of outside investor money” to make his $44 billion Twitter takeover happen, including from some unlikely sources. New SEC filings reveal the Saudi royal family, a Qatar-based group and a string of wealthy Trump supporters are among his $7 billion backers.
Meek Mill‘s estimated $20 million net worth may pale in comparison, but the Dream Chasers boss has built an impressive investment portfolio nevertheless. Last May, Meek plunged more than $50,000 into the popular cryptocurrency Dogecoin, while in February he partnered with JAY-Z, Lil Baby, Michael Rubin and others to purchase sports apparel company Mitchell & Ness in a $250 million deal.
“I make my own decisions of what I’m going to invest in,” Meek told Yahoo! Finance in 2019. “I have companies that manage my finances, and I have Roc Nation managing me. I have my own financial team at the same time. Me, I stay on top of everything myself too. I just keep things going.”
