For the last few years, Meek Mill has been outspoken about America's prison system and mass incarceration and his most recent Instagram posts tackle just that, Complex reports. The Philadelphia rapper posted a series of videos that detail a few statistics on the criminal justice system, specifically the injustices it presents to African-Americans-including himself.
"American criminal justice system holds more than 2.3 million people in confinement," read the on-screen messaging in the video, posted with the caption #staywoke. "African Americans are only 13% of the American population but constitute 40% of the incarcerated population. The case of Robert Williams aka Meek Mill is emblematic to the systemic problems of our criminal justice system. In spite of police misconduct perjury, bias and corruption found within the Narcotics Field Unit resulting in 800 case dismissals in 2014, Meek Mill remains on probation. Meek Mill will be on probation his entire adult life until 2023."
In another post, a voicemail from Brother Sharif plays, checking in on the rapper and even accusing his presiding judge of having it out for him. While this all pretty much falls in line with Meek's most recent focus on prison reform, screens bearing the phrase "Stay Woke" popped up in Los Angeles along with the Dreamchasers logo beside it which might mean new music is on the way.
While Meek hasn't officially mentioned a new album or project just yet, he did share a snippet of a song just last month, which just might be the first of many.
