On Instagram, Meek Mill is chomping at some sort of blue dental bleaching laser. His photo caption reads, "Gotta clean my teeth b4 I talk dirty." Note Meek's surroundings—the boxes and duct tape, the paper-white lighting and low cork ceiling. It seems that Meek Mill is 'gramming from the back office of a UPS facility.
