Since Meek Mill’s release from prison he has been the poster child for prison reform. So it may have come as a shock that he chose to cancel a planned meeting with the White House to discuss reform. Reports say that Meek and his team were flooded with calls from his industry friends, including Roc Nation head honcho Jay-Z to avoid the troubled White House. Meek is currently listed as a Roc Nation artist and meeting with White House staff and Donald Trump may have been deemed to risqué for his brand.
Jay reportedly told the rapper that meeting with Trump “would be problematic” for Meek’s image.
“I was originally scheduled to be part of a panel on Prison Reform at the White House to help shed light on the issues within the system. Unfortunately, the focus turned to the President and Myself which concerned me that it might take away from creating a positive result from today’s discussions….As a result, I decided not to attend so that the focus would be solely on fixing our prison system. Most importantly I remain fully committed to improving our criminal justice system.” – Meek Mill
Did he make the right move? What do you guys think?
