Meek Mill recently came home after serving several months in prison on charges that many deemed unworthy of him doing time in jail for. Jay-Z even felt moved enough to write an op-ed in the New York Times to use his voice in order to highlight the absurdity of Meek Mill's case.
While serving time most recently in a Pennsylvania prison Meek Mill stated, “Although I’m blessed to have the resources to fight this unjust situation, I understand that many people of color across the country don’t have that luxury and I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues..." “In the meantime, I plan to work closely with my legal team to overturn this unwarranted conviction and look forward to reuniting with my family and resuming my music career.”
That being said, the Philadelphia rapper recently took to IG in order to keep his word, and in doing so, highlighted the case of a Pennsylvania inmate who appears to be doing decades in prison because of a "missed deadline."
Let's hope President Trump can do what President Obama and other previous presidents have either been unwilling or unconcerned with doing, and that is to facilitate bringing about just jail reform in the United States Penitentiary systems.
