This Tuesday (August 28 at 10PM), Maybach Music Group recording artist Meek Mill makes his BET Network movie debut in Streets. Meek, who plays himself in the film, stars alongside Nafeesa Williams (Nicole Gordon) and Marvin Warner (Michael Butler).
The story follows Nicole, whose recently divorced mother takes a high profile job with Philadelphia’s District Attorney. Nicole is accidentally swept into a world which places her on the other side of her mother’s new career. Meek is not only the most successful recording artist in the city; he also has the streets at his will – too bad he can’t say the same thing for his crew.
Streets was written and directed by Jamal Hill. Early on in his career, his directing skills were brought to the attention of Will Smith. That connection led to Hill interning at Overbrook Entertainment and landing blockbuster movie credits on “I Am Legend”, “Hancock”, and “Iron Man”.

“This is my Philly version of ‘Menace 2 Society’,” Hill said of his film. “I’m proud of the fanfare ‘Streets’ built over the past year. The cast did an excellent job. Meek Mill showed exceptional talent across the board.”
Streets will air on BET Networks on Tuesday, August 28, at 10PM. View the official Streets trailer below:
