Meek Mill Flames Tekashi Over Testifying: “69 Going Up In Federal Courthouse Today Kids – Don’t Be An Internet Gangsta”

Maybach Music Group’s Meek Mill knows the importance of September 17. The hip-hop veteran has shared his 2 cents on Tekashi 6ix9ine testifying today in a federal courthouse in a drug trafficking case.

Meek went to Twitter and didn’t hold back on reminding fans crime doesn’t pay.

6ix9ine appeared in court today to testify against two alleged New York City street gang members as part of an agreement with the feds.

One of the defendants, Anthony Ellison, is accused of kidnapping and robbing 6ix9ine last year after a falling-out. Ellison denies the charges. 6ix9ine admitted in a guilty plea this year that he joined the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods and helped try to kill a rival gang member. With the plea deal, 6ix9ine can gain leniency at sentencing from what otherwise would have been a mandatory minimum 47 years in prison if he admits all crimes and testifies truthfully when summoned. (USA Today)

In a recent interview, New York rapper 50 Cent said he believed Tek could return to the spotlight once he gets out of jail but wouldn’t be able to rap about the same content.

“I did tell him not to go to Chicago. They did it anyway but they did it to make fun instead of going out there like that,” Fif said referring to 6ix9ine previously going to Chi-Town to flex his muscle during a feud with rappers like Chief Keef. “I never seen that before. While he’s doing what he’s doing, he’s not actually living the cause of the actual lifestyle. What they identify with is him, they pardon him because he would like to be away from the lifestyle. I don’t think he knows – it’s going to be hard to make the right record because what do you say? All the stuff he was saying, he can’t say. If he made a record from wherever he sat down at, because he doesn’t have to come out to do it. If he made the record, I believe the audience will play it.” (Hot 97)

Back in February, Meek Mill and Tek’s girlfriend Jade went at each other’s necks over 6ix9ine – notably his decision to plead guilty on federal charges and cooperate in a racketeering case.

Meek Mill Hosts Backpack Giveaway at His Old Elementary School

Meek Mill is currently making a celebration run across the country for this Legendary Nights tour and upon arriving in Philadelphia, he took a moment to give back to the kids.

The Dream Chaser teamed with PUMA to host a backpack giveaway at the James G. Blaine Elementary school before he hit the stage in Philly. Blaine is Meek’s old elementary school.

During the visit Meek donated over 500 backpacks with school supplies to students that are in need. He also supplied 30 classroom packs to the teachers at the school so they are prepared with appropriate supplies for the duration of the year.

You can hear Meek’s speech to the students below.

Roc Nation and NFL Donate $400,000 to Chicago Organizations That Empower Youth

Ahead of their Inspire Change performance at Chicago’s Grant Park on Thursday, Meek Mill, Rapsody, Vic Mensa and Megan Trainor will visit local organizations in Chicago. The NFL and Roc Nation will donate $400,000 to the Better Boys Foundation Family Services and Crusher’s Club.

TMZ details the two organizations were picked by JAY-Z‘s Roc Nation. Meek and Megan will visit Crusher’s Club, whose mission is to help Chicago youth “restore their lives and improve their neighborhoods.” Mensa and Rapsody will head to the BBF Family Services, which has been around since the 1960s and aims to provide education, employment, and youth services while supporting 400 families through health programs.

The Chicago organizations will set the blueprint for how Roc Nation, the NFL, and the Players Coalition aim to Inspire Change across each NFL city.

Meek, Trainor, and Rapsody will perform at the NFL Kickoff Event in Chicago, which is the host for the start of the season with a battle between the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers. The three artists will serve as the first Inspire Change advocates.

Along with the concert, the NFL announced a new apparel line, which along with the concert, are stated to provide proceeds to the overall Inspire Change movement.

Response to the concert and apparel announcement, along with the deal overall, has split social media with some advocating to see if the partnership led by JAY-Z will yield any positive results and others calling Hov a sell-out.

No, Meek Mill Did Not “Beat the Streets”

 

What does it mean to beat the streets?

Some people might define it as growing up in the ghetto, making bad decisions whether it’s running with a gang, selling drugs, shooting or robbing people and making it out of that situation unscathed. Others might say its getting caught up in the previously mentioned crimes and beating any cases against you. Well, if you ask Meek Mill, beating the streets means neither of the above.

On Monday, Meek Mill pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor firearm charge in Philadelphia. Following the plea, prosecutors dismissed the other charges against him and Meek was officially free after spending his entire adult life on probation.

Meek held a rally outside of City hall where he announced “Meek Free” and later tweeted that he “beat the streets.”
But sorry Meek, you did not beat the streets.

At age 19, Robert “Meek Mill” Williams was caught up in a situation that would stick with him until he was in his 30’s. In 2007, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Chronology Of The Meek Mill Case, Meek was arrested on gun and drug charges and in the following year was sentenced to five months in jail for drug possession, firearms violation and simple assault.

Meek confessed to having the gun but to this day denies ever pointing it at an officer as the charges read, and also denied having any drugs on him. Meek was convicted anyway, and at this point Meek is in the system and the streets are up 1-0 on the scoreboard.

Following his five month sentence, Meek was blowing up with music. He dropped his Flamers mixtape in 2008 with the hit song “In My Bag” and that same year was about to reach a deal with Atlanta rapper T.I.’s Grand Hustle record label.

In 2011, following the failed deal with T.I.’s Grand Hustle, Meek inked a deal with Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group alongside his “Ambition” collaborator Wale. His track with Ross “I’m a Boss” was taking off and legends like Jay-Z and Nas were acknowledging Meek’s potential. Meek was bigger than Philadelphia and his career accomplishments tied the score at 1-1 with the streets. He was on… but there was one thing that would hold him back.

What was worse than serving five months in jail, would be serving 10 years on probation. On Wale’s song “The Helium Balloon” from his Album About Nothing, Wale and Jerry Seinfield talk about the helium balloon theory where kids (fans) love holding on to the balloon (Wale) but really want to see it fly away (have a successful career). But when they let it go, they quickly want it back. For Meek, Judge Genece Brinkley was Meek’s metaphorical little kid holding the balloon.

Brinkley has been on Meek’s case from the beginning, and no matter how successful the “House Party” rapper got, she still saw him as a gun toting drug dealer.

In 2014, Meek was sentenced to six months in prison for what Judge Brinkley stated were multiple probation violations including posing on social media with people holding guns, scheduling out of state performances without asking his probation officer, failing to give a working phone number to his probation officer and taking shots at his P.O. on Twitter.

In some ways, this six month sentence boosted Meek’s rap career as the #FreeMeekMill hashtag gained steam in the hip-hop community and social media. The rapper’s half year sentence juiced the hype around his MMG sophomore album Dreams Worth More Than Money that went on to sell more than 200,000 copies in its first week giving Meek his first Billboard number 1 album.

Meek was out of jail by the time his album dropped, but limited travel put a cap on the money he would bring in on the road. The conviction from 2009 was now hurting Meek in 2015 and 2016 in what was the height of his career and the streets went up 2-1. The streets along with a no nonsense judge who placed the MMG signed rapper on house arrest in 2016 kept Meek pigeon holed in Philadelphia despite his career reaching far beyond the City of Brotherly Love.

His final run in with the law would prove the most gruesome and eye opening for an evolving artist. In November 2017, Judge Brinkley sentenced Meek to 2-4 years in jail after he was arrested in New York City for riding a dirt bike, a video that was posted on Instagram by a fan.

The charges were dropped in New York, but Meek had to return to Philadelphia for violating probation. Eight years removed from his 2009 firearms charge, the streets went up 3-1 against Meek. Meek’s case had become bigger than hip-hop. The country wanted criminal justice reform and Meek was the perfect figurehead. Meek’s 2009 arresting officer was on the District Attorney’s “suspect police” list, and Judge Brinkley continuously gave Meek the harshest rulings for non-violent offenses.

Meek was released on parole in July 2018  and as he detailed in his Rolling Stone interview from jail, Meek went on the offensive to fight for criminal justice reform not just for himself, but for others who don’t have the public support that Meek does. Meek’s original conviction was also tossed out  and suddenly there was light at the end of the tunnel

Ten years removed from being arrested on gun charges, Meek plead guilty to a misdemeanor gun charge and is a free man. Travel restrictions, multiple stints in jail, and an estimated $30 million loss for a 10 year old charge at 32 years old Meek is free.

Congratulations to Meek Mill for gaining his freedom, But in his ten year battle with the law, the score at best will be scored 3-2, the streets won.
