Over the weekend, rapper, Meek Mill was denied entry by security to the Cosmopolitan hotel in Las Vegas. Security told Meek Mill that he was being denied because of a prior incident that they had with him, but Meek said that no such incident ever occurred!
Meek’s lawyer argued that Las Vegas hotels have a list of black artists that are being denied entry.
The Cosmopolitan later issued a public statement claiming that Meek was stopped because they were at capacity, however, Meek and the video of the incident, tells a different story.
