Meek Mill visited Ellen to speak on his experience in jail and the necessity to reform the criminal justice system. Meek made it clear that the reason he was arrested was because he posted a video of himself popping a wheelie on a motorcycle that resulted in a technical probation violation that sent him back to prison, which is why he’s serious about criminal justice reform. He shares with Ellen that he frequently watched her show in prison and actually found out he was being released on bail through the news and was set free ten minutes later.
The South Philly rapper also just penned an option editorial in the New York Times that further discussed how the system creates a bad cycle of children growing up with parents incarcerated and become more likely to have the same fate.
Meek Mill will be dropping his new album Championships this Friday, November 30th with features from Cardi B, Kodak Black, Ella Mai, and more.
