“Voice For The Voiceless”

Meek Mill: Let’s Retire #MeekMill, Focus on Reform

Rapper Meek Mill said it’s time to retire the #MeekMill hashtag and focus on criminal-justice reform as a whole in a Sunday night interview with Dateline, his first since the Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturned a judge’s decision that had imprisoned him for a probation violation. “God put me in a position to be a voice for the voiceless,” he said, “It’s about the thousands of others caught up in that situation.” Mill spoke about being “beat up” by the police during his arrest, saying it was “brutal” and there was “blood everywhere.” Mill said other officers didn’t even blink, like “it was normal to get beaten up like that.” He denied pulling a gun on officers in his initial arrest a decade ago. “Thousands of minorities don’t have platform,” he said. “Now they do.”
