Meek Mill appeared on MSNBC’s The Beat With Ari on Tuesday (June 12) to highlight the injustices facing him and many minorities in the prison system.
Speaking with host Ari Melber, the “Dreams & Nightmares” rapper slammed the conditions of his probation which can send him back to prison for things such as crossing state lines to pick up his son from school. “If I drive through the Lincoln Tunnel right now, I can be arrested,” the rapper said. “Just driving through a tunnel can send me back to prison for four years.”
Meek also revealed his plans going forward, which involves him helping others in similar situations such as Eric Riddick, a Philly man who claims he’s innocent of a 1991 killing.
“He has like a messed up case where he basically proved his innocence but due to certain statutory and laws that were created, even if you prove yourself innocent, you can’t get out,” Meek said about Riddick, adding that he and his lawyers will also be trying to help others as well.
