Maybach Music Group’s Meek Mill is going to need more than jail bars to keep him silenced. The hip-hop star phoned into a live streamed Reform Philly rally today (March 13) being held in his hometown.
Despite having to call in from jail, Meek Milly had his voice touch hundreds of people in attendance and reach thousands of fans watching from a TIDAL live stream.
The rapper phoned in to the Reform Philly rally Tuesday through his attorney, Joe Tacopina, who put him on speaker and let him talk into the mic. The rally is aimed at “Bringing Injustice to Light,” and was partially created with Meek in mind … #Justice4Meek. Meek thanked his supporters for coming out and expressed his appreciation for their continued efforts to get him released from prison. He also talked about his love for Philly, as well as his rough upbringing. He said his long probation sentence at age 18 held him down. (TMZ)
Meek’s Instagram page also shared a few moments from the Philadelphia event.
A few hours ago, MMG boss Rick Ross penned an emotional open message about Meek’s situation.
Earlier this month, a report emerged about various Philadelphia officers including Reginald Graham being on a corruption list.
Note: Graham’s testimony was central to the arrest of Meek Mill more than a decade ago — a case that has since landed the rapper back in prison due to probation violations. Mill’s attorneys recently filed a motion accusing Graham of lying under oath to secure Mill’s arrest. (Philly)
