Meek Mill Plans To Use His Voice To Speak Up For The Incarcerated

Meek Mill will Embark upon a new career as soon as he's released from prison.

(AllHipHop News) Meek Mill is planning to campaign for those who are unfairly treated by the justice system upon his release.

The rapper is currently serving a two-four year prison sentence for violating his probation relating to a 2008 drug and gun bust, a sentence that has been heavily criticized by the "I'm A Boss" hitmaker’s supporters who include his Roc Nation boss Jay-Z.

And in an interview from jail, Meek, real name Robert Rihmeek Williams, has revealed that once he does gain his freedom he plans to become an advocate for others experiencing the same issues.

"There's brothers locked down that did nothing to be here but piss off people like (Judge Genece) Brinkley," Meek told Rolling Stone magazine from State Correctional Institution Chester in Pennsylvania. "I want to speak on this system and what it does to black people – on both f##king sides of the fence."

In the explosive interview, editors at Rolling Stone piece together in forensic detail the background to his case, including a former police officer's sworn testimony that Meek's arresting officer, Reggie Graham, falsely accused him of pointing a gun at police, damning allegations about his sentencing judge, Judge Genece Brinkley, and alleged harassment at the hands of his probation officer Treas Underwood.

"Trust me, I'm gonna say something about that. And then, I'm gonna move to Atlanta," he added.

The rapper's interview comes the day after a rally, "REFORM: Bringing Injustice to Light," was held at Pennsylvania State University in support of his release, which was attended by Mill's mother, Roc Nation reps, his lawyer Joe Tacopina, activist Al Sharpton and Penn professors.

Meek spoke to the audience in the Irvine auditorium briefly by phone.

“I’m just appreciative of all of the support that everyone is bringing to the table,” he told the crowd.
