In a new interview, Boosie said Meek’s demand and popularity will ultimately skyrocket despite having to do time.
“Prison don’t hurt you. Let’s get this right. Prison does not hurt you. The only thing it does is take you out the streets for a minute and it might hurt a relationship with a family member or a kid who you’re away from. First of all, if you’re a licensed artist, you’re going to to get checks anyway and you can’t spend them. So your money’s going to stack up on there. You won’t be getting show money but your demand will go up ten times when you come home. Your first two, three months doing shows – $100,000, $100,000, $100,000, $100,000, you’re gonna make it back in two or three months in what you made. Meek Mill is going to do the same thing. Bobby Shmurda is going to do the same thing. Boosie did the same thing.” (“Everyday Struggle”)
This week, a report surfaced about Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid low-key visiting Mill.
Joel went to visit Meek last Friday, along with 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin, and we’re told the visit went as good as it could. As one Sixers source put it, “They really lifted Meek’s spirits.” (TMZ Sports)
A few days ago, Hot 97 radio veteran Funk Flex and Tory Lanez saluted Meek amid his publicized two-year prison stint.
Earlier in the week, Reverend Al Sharpton spoke out on meeting Meek in jail.
"Al Sharpton met with #MeekMill behind bars, and says the rapper told him he wanted to serve as a vessel of change for others who are wrongly imprisoned … like he is now. Al appeared Monday alongside Meek's attorney, Joe Tacopina, to address his prison visit with the guy he promised to help, and he says Meek wants him to help shed a light on a broken criminal justice system. Al says Meek is also determined to be a voice for the voiceless. The civil rights leader explained that Meek appears determined, strong and without a trace of bitterness after being sentenced to prison for 2 to 4 years for violating his probation … violations that Al says weren't pursued as crimes, but punished as such, regardless. He also talked about his time going to bat for Tupac Shakur in the '90s to help get him out of solitary confinement, explaining how he's the right guy to help Meek fight his case now.Sounds like Al's officially in Meek's corner." #TMZ
