Drake Says 'Free Meek Mill' During Australia Concert
Since Meek Mill was sentenced to 2 to 4 years in prison for violating his probation earlier in November, much of the hip-hop community has come to the defense of the Philly native’s unjust ruling. You can now add Drake to that list, even though the pair had been feuding since their 2015 incident, which began with Meek’s “R.I.C.O” track, where he accused Drizzy of having a ghost writer on Twitter.
While performing at the Melbourne, Australia stop on his Boy Meets World Tour Sunday (Nov. 19), the Toronto native took notice of what some in the crowd were wearing in-between songs. Drake came across a fan donning a “Free Meek Mill” shirt and echoed the positive sentiment saying, “I see you got the ‘Free Meek Mill’ t-shirt. Free Meek Mill too man, for real. You right."
The 6 God is willing to put his past issues with the 30-year-old aside for the greater good in hopes of justice for the Dreams and Nightmares artist. Last week (Nov. 17), JAY-Z penned an op-ed with the New York Times calling out the United States judicial system for its mass incarceration problem, which targets minorities. Earlier in 2017, Hov executive produced Time: The Kalief Browder Story, which is now available to stream on Netflix.
Meek Mill is currently awaiting a new bail hearing after his latest effort was cancelled by the Philadelphia court system due to “an administrative error.”
