Lil Meech says hip-hop wasn’t for him


Lil Meech recently explained his decision to focus fully on acting instead of a career in music during an interview with AllHipHop. He told that outlet that he quickly realized hip-hop wasn’t for him after getting in front of a mic with nothing to say.

“I was there for like eight hours trying to figure out what to say and I realized this ain’t for me,” Lil Meech admitted. “I love music, I have an ear for it, but being in front of the mic, that’s not where I shine.” He also reflected on what it takes to make it in acting. “It’s all about hard work, dedication, and really soaking in everything around you. You’ve got to have tough skin in both industries, but for me, acting became the clearer path,” Meech said.

Meech further reiterated that he’s fully committed to acting. “This is what I know. This is what I’m supposed to be doing. Once I started getting comfortable in the first and second seasons, I knew that I could handle my job. Not just do the role, but embody it,” he said. “I want people to know that I really went to acting school and buckled down and focused. This is something I really want to do. This is not something that I am just trying. I wanted to show people that I could really act.”
