Earlier this year, Time recruited mothers—most notably Beyonce's mom—to write open letters to their children. This Sunday is Father’s Day, so Time got Meek Mill to pen a letter about being a dad. Meek touches on the joys of fatherhood—“Being able to give [my son] anything he wants is one of the best feelings in the world”—as well as the fears: “The fact that no one can teach you how to be a father means you are always learning on the job.” The MC also talked about struggling to balance his work life with his domestic responsibilities. “I always explain to [my son] that everything I do, I do for him,” Meek writes. “All the shows, all the nights in the studio, I do with my son in mind.”
