Though Meek Mill remains behind bars, that isn’t stopping him from releasing new videos. On Monday (April 9), Meek ventured back into this 2017 album Wins and Losses to liberate his latest visual, for “1942 Flows.”
From the onset, an exonerated Meek Mill walks out of prison and encounters a slew of reporters anxious to talk to him about his release from jail. When asked about finally being freed from prison, Meek candidly responds by saying, “I feel like a free slave, you know? I feel like I’ve been targeted by certain people. Just being out on the streets and knowing somebody can take your freedom at any time; you got cops, you see they charged me up on felonies. They seen me riding a bike, that kind of says it all.”
In between scenes, clips portray avid Meek Mill supporters rallying in hopes of trying to bring the embattled MC home. From kids donning hoodies that read “Free Meek Mill” to signs that say “#Justice4Meek,” the love for the Philly rapper runs deep throughout the video.
Last week, Judge Genece Brinkley denied Meek’s bail request. Days after that, the Philadelphia district attorney backed the rapper’s request to be released on bail and submitted a motion to the Supreme Court.
Meek’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, was pleased with the decision, telling Billboard: “We are encouraged by the Philadelphia District Attorney’s steadfast stance in not opposing Meek Mill’s release on bail at the Pennsylvania Supreme Court level while the current legal proceedings continue, even in light of Judge Brinkley’s vindictive and erroneous decision.”
