It's already been a busy week for Meek Mill as he gears up to release his highly anticipated Championships album on Friday. In addition to announcing his North American The Motivation Tour on Monday (Nov. 26), Mill also penned an op-ed in The New York Times calling for severe changes to America's criminal justice system.
A motorcycle wheelie in New York City found the Philly rapper in violation of his probation in the eyes of Judge Genece Brinkley, who sentenced him to two to four years behind bars back in October 2017. After petitioning for his freedom, Meek was finally granted bail by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court nearly six months later, in April.
Since his release, the Dreamchasers artist has made sure to use his platform as a voice for the voiceless and help shine a light on the injustices he endured in the prison industrial complex. "I know I’m the exception to the rule -- a lucky one. It’s clearer than ever that a disproportionate number of men and women of color are treated unfairly by a broken criminal justice system," he wrote.
