A$AP Ferg ft. Meek Mill "Trap and a Dream"

As of Wednesday (Nov. 8), Meek Mill officially began his prison sentence, but the support from his peers hasn't wavered. Following JAY-Z's Dallas tour stop speech on Meek's sentencing, a recent petition, and the outpouring of support from the hip-hop community, A$AP Ferg joined in and showed his support for Meek by releasing the video for the pair's Still Striving cut "Trap and a Dream." 

In the clip, Ferg welcomes Meek to his native Harlem, as the two chill in a white Rolls Royce in front of the popular Harlem seafood restaurant El Puerto Seafood. Ferg unleashes his blistering verse on top of the luxury vehicle and raps, "Off the dome, I'm killin' n---as/ But the pen game on a different level" 

Next up, the Philly native alternates between rapping from his seat in the Phantom and in front the crowd of the fans populating the sidewalk. "I been running it up, fucking it up, plenty/ Hop out the spur, jump in the truck, Bentley," Meek raps. "Neosporin, I'm in the cut, chilly/ Mask on, mask off, repping my set, Philly."

As the end of the video, a Moliere quote appears that reads, "The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it" and the hashtag "#FreeMeek." 

"Meek is my brother and will forever have my support, especially in these tough times," Ferg said in a press release with a link to the current Change.org petition. The petition is titled "Somebody Save Meek," with a goal of 200,000 signatures. "His efforts to change his image while still remaining true to his artistry and who he is as a man went unnoticed as well," the description reads. "This petition is designed to show the amount of people who believe that the punishment was harsh and that him being imprisoned will be a disservice to the youth and community at large."
