Meek Mill, "We Ball" featuring Young Thug

Amid all of his legal woes, Meek Mill is shifting his focus back to music and churned out a new visual for "We Ball" on Wednesday (Dec. 13). 

Meek opens the visual with a quote that reads, "Even though the way we mourn a loss may be different in certain cultures, it's something we all must accept if we want to heal" and the Thomas Campbell quote, "But to live in those hearts we leave behind, is not to die."

Meek is then seen at a cemetery holding a necklace with a picture of Lil Snupe, his protege who was fatally shot in 2013, as a group of pallbearers bring the coffin to the gravesite. Over the anthemic ballad, Meek raps about the trust issues and troubles that ensue because of his successes. "Any weapon formed against me shall not prosper/ Used to pray them Ramen noodles turned to lobster," he raps. "Gotta watch my own homies on the roster/ Cause this the type of money will get your lined up."

Clips of family members mourning are spliced between the cemetery shots in the visual as Meek makes his way to a room where Young Thug is asleep on a couch. After waking up, Thug and Meek stand on the pulpit in the room and pretend to read the Bible as they take turns delivering their verses. "Lost so many niggas, I went crazy, I couldn't balance it/ You can't question God or any of these challenges," Thug advises the crowd gathered in the room. 

The visual fades to black and concludes with the hashtag "#Justice4Meek." Meek's legal team has made several attempts to get the rapper out early on bail, all of which have been denied, and has sent the appeal to a higher court. The rapper is currently serving a two to four-year prison sentence for violating his probation.
