The Philadelphia rapper, who just released his latest album 'Championships' in November 2018, looks to be on the hunt for some championships of another kind - in the world of esports.

On February 26, Meek responded to a fan on Twitter, confirming his ambitions in esports were real and that he needed the "best of the best".

In January, during a Twitter Q&A, Meek Mill responded to a fan asking if was going to start a 'sports agency', saying "coming soon."

Although this is first interest in esports, Meek Mill has been a longtime gamer, and even mentions some of favorite games in his lyrics.

In September, he was spotted playing FIFA against a professional soccer player for Philadelphia Union, while attending the Made in America festival - esports organization Gen.G shared the clip online.

Meek hasn't revealed what games he's interested in feilding teams for specifically, but a number of professional Call of Duty players have already shown interest, including FaZe Clan's Dillon 'Attach' Price.

Soon to be former Red Reserve players Trei 'Zer0' Morris and Matthew 'Skrapz' Marshall were also quickly in Meek Mill's replies, as their previous organization are said to have ran into financial issues.

He isn't the first hip-hop artist to show interest in competitive gaming either, as Soulja Boy recently claimed that he too was starting an esports team.

From sports games like FIFA and Madden, to first person shooters like CS:GO and Call of Duty, and even MOBA's like League of Legends and DotA2, there's a lot of choice for Meek Mill to get his journey in esports started.
