Reformed Philadelphia phenom Meek Mill has become quite the advocate for the cause since his release this past April. As a “victim of a miscarriage of justice — carried out by an untruthful officer, as determined by the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office, and an unfair judge,” the Wins & Losses emcee is determined to make sure others don’t end up on a similar trajectory as him. Amid the utterly shocking federal conviction of Bronx rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine, Meek has a few words for the neophyte that he may actually want to heed in light of his current predicament.
Despite the Dummy Boy emcee's rough exterior being his token to success and wealth, that "gangsta type of energy" is a part of the problem, according to Meek. "He locked up in the middle of some sh*t, so you know you gave out that energy [and] you got that energy back." The "Amen" rapper recalled a moment he actually tried to speak to 6ix9ine, prior to his arrest. Not wanting to speak solely or directly about prison, Meek simply wanted to urge the rapper to alter his "energy," presumably to avoid the mess he's in now.
"You can't live with ten security guards forever. The charges he got is a little crazy [...] and them people know he ain't responsible for all the things [he's being accused of]," Meek continued.
While the latter is unfortunate and the notion of a sit-down between these two rappers may seem far-fetched, hopefully the message reaches 6ix9ine behind bars and he, too, will become a changed man, regardless of his conviction and sentencing.
Check out Meek's full sentiments below.
