March 15-17 Officially Declared as “Meek Mill Weekend” in Philly
Okay Meek! We see you! Its official. March 15-17 is now declared as Meek Mill Weekend in Philadelphia.
On Thursday the rapper was honored by the city council and given this prestigious recognition. He was described as a "critically acclaimed multiplatinum hip-hop artist, songwriter, entrepreneur, actor, and criminal justice advocate."
Mill was released from prison in 2018 and every since his release he has been an advocate for prison reform. He has teamed up with many leaders of our country to find solutions and fight for change in the criminal justice system, especially for people of color.
Mill thanked the Philadelphia council for this honor and said, "As you know the situation I have been through, a lot of people didn't know, when I came home I was focused on really trying to give young kids like me a fair shot coming up in the system."
To celebrate, Mill is set to put on two performances in Philly. Both at the Met Philadelphia on North Broad Street.
