Rapper Meek Mill had quite a lot to say to celebrities who think little about the Black Lives Matter movement. It is unclear if he was referring to comments made by fellow rapper lil’ Wayne who has recently made headline denouncing the Black Lives Matter as not being relevant.
“Right now, we gotta get our rights right….That’s way they’re saying ‘Black Lives Matter.’ When I see other celebrities say ‘All Lives Matter,’ I be like, ‘what you talking about? Y’all niggas got this rich?” Stated the rapper.
Meek also addresses what he said to be a double standard in how the police in America uphold the drug laws in black community while overlooking the same exact drug activities going on in colleges campuses across America.
The 29 year-old addressed how college campuses are filled with just as much drugs as urban communities yet they’re not being targeted.
“College campuses are flooded with drugs the same way the hood is. You think they got NARCs running around pulling guns out on people and shooting them? States rapper Meek Mill. “So why would you open your mouth and say ‘All Lives Matter? We know All Lives Matter, but that was never the issue. We talking about us getting killed….and going to jail for no reason.” He adds.
In an Instagram post the rapper stated the following:
“Once I found out I wasn’t born to fail and just fall victim to a fake ass life that don’t offer shit but a jail,death i carry myself with extreme confidence and I know my value… even tho that’s where we came from and all most of us has ever experienced in life! Wake up! Don’t question my raps because it’s a life we lived and suffered from, I have a right to express my myself! BY THE WAY ….AFTER DC4 I won’t continue to rap about extreme violence!!! But I will remain to let my people know in these terrible environments to adapt and survive at any cost because “US BLACK PEOPLE ARE STILL AT WAR WITH OURSELVES AND THE SYSTEM IN REAL LIFE! #grammarcheck I don’t talk the “AMERICAN ENGLISH” because I don’t believe in it…I never cared about writing or speaking that way! I dont dress that way …. I’m doing me better yet doing #us”
True words spoken from one of the least expected person to address such an issue that plagues most urban communities.
