The rapper also says he tried to stop Kanye West from visiting the White House in a recent profile.
After taking Ellen DeGeneres to school in a game of ping-pong backstage, Meek Mill hit the floor for a conversation as part of the latest episode of The Ellen Degeneres Show airing on Wednesday (Nov. 28). Throughout the six-minute sit-down, the Philly native reflected on the moment he found he was getting bail and the need for criminal justice reform in America.
Meek began by explaining that he actually watched Ellen's show a ton during his near six-month prison bid. "It's not a lot of good things to watch on TV. They give us the basic channels. I found myself watching Ellen. Some days it was CNN and then it was Ellen," he said.
The "Burn" rapper was actually found out about his imminent release from behind bars by watching the news. "I was watching the news and [seeing] 'Meek Mill is up for bail,'" he realized. "I dropped my food and jumped up in the air. I was leaving 10 minutes later. I came outside and I was kind of dizzy."
