As fans would know, Philly’s hip-hop hometown hero Meek Mill is somewhat leery of police for obvious reasons, and that goes for law enforcement overseas, too. It should then come as no surprise that Meek’s apprehension peaked when a pair of Jamaican policeman pulled him over in his runner with some of his entourage in a video posted to his Instagram story. What might come as a surprise, however, is the reason they stopped the Championships rapper over in the first place.
“Y’all trying to take a picture, man?” he joked in his best Patois. “Y’all pulled us over, and y’all said y’all want a picture, man?” It’s clear from the video that there’s no tension between the officers and Meek, especially considering how happy they seemed to have spotted the MMG heavyweight.
“Y’all gonna pull us over—we thought we getting locked up!”
The officers confirmed that it was “nothing like that” though. For the picture, an audibly jovial Meek bargained for a police escort out of Kingston. The video ends thereafter, but we’re sure the “Uptown Vibes” emcee did the cops a solid without that police escort anyway.
Philly PD, take notes.
