Meek Mill Talks Kanye West & #FreeMeek Campaign With Angie Martinez

He also thanked JAY-Z and 76ers owner, Michael Rubin for their support.


Meek Mill sat down with Angie Martinez for an exclusive one on one session on her Power 105.1 show on Tuesday (May 8th). During the 26-minute long interview, the Philly rapper spoke on his time behind bars, the impact of the #FreeMeek campaign, his upcoming six-part docu-series produced by Amazon and JAY-Z, Safaree and more.

At around the 6:45 mark, Meek touched on self hate, which was largely centered around his feelings for Judge Genece Brinkley and Kanye West.

"He's [Kanye West] trying to get a positive message out. I see what he's trying to do," Meek said. "I don't understand it, but I can see what he's trying to do. Like when he speaks about, 'Why are 50 people killing each other?' Black people get killed. A little girl gets shot in the head in the neighborhood, and everybody turn their head to it. But if a cop shoots somebody, everybody marches. I think it should be the same energy we're giving to the cop."

He later gave his opinion on Kanye's controversial comments on TMZ about slavery being a choice.  "When he's talking about slavery and people had a choice, though, I disagree 10,000 percent," he said. "I don't know what he's talking about. But I know that he's trying to deliver a message for a better cause. What he's trying to do. He's not informed enough to speak on some things he's speaking on." 

Meek concluded his thoughts on West by saying: "I'm not taking nothing from him. That's somebody that inspired me. I've got my own battle to fight and I'm on some justice reform. I'm trying to free the slaves."
