Since leaving jail, Meek Mill has been placing his time and energy towards reform for people unjustly imprisoned. The rapper is doing this while having a current legal situation looming over his head. In new footage that surfaced via his Instagram page, the rapper spoke about prison labor, and how he informed New England Patriots CEO Robert Kraft of the current 80 cents hourly pay rate for prisoners.
Meek said “That’s slavery and I talk about that in this song. I just went to jail for six months and read a lot of books. Went through some real experiences relatable to a lot of people, a lot of people going through the system.”
Meek Mill went on to say “I felt like I gotta responsibility from when I was locked up with certain dudes and me leaving knowing that I got the support I got. I got billionaires. I got the support from fans and people. I got a lot of resources. A lot of people stuck in that position don’t got resources … I always felt I was responsible to reach back for a few and help them move forward.”
