For decades, it has been a struggle for some people to understand the lifestyle of Hip-Hop artists. Many rappers are judged because of the mistakes they make throughout their career. Growing up in poor neighborhoods of Philadelphia, Meek Mill has experienced what many would say is an unfair judicial system. Statistics show that there are a disproportionate number of arrests in low-income housing areas. Media outlets tend to focus on the negative aspects of people associated with this genre of music, but rarely help in providing a solution.
Meek Mill just dropped his “Championships” album over the weekend and the title alone speaks favor over his life, the lives of African-Americans and what’s to come. Words have power. Meek is bringing so much positive energy to the urban community and I’m loving it. He is putting up a fight for criminal justice reform and has inspired the younger generations to put their differences aside and love on one another, by squashing his beefs with icons like Drake & The Game. It’s all about practicing what you preach. Thank you for everything you’re doing, dude. We need more people like you. Keep winning, homie!!! -Diamond
