Over the past few years, Meek Mill has taken a few L’s to his chin from losing an epic rap beef with Drake, losing his girl Nicki Minaj and going off to prison for probation violations on decade old gun and drug charges. The latter, which seemed to cause public outcry from both friends and enemies has landed him a 6 part docu-series with Amazon Prime to discuss criminal justice reform. When people are incarcerated, they’re told upon departure to make something out of their lives and do better. What the public tends to not know is that there are people like Meek Mill who end up on probation for a full decade and the smallest infraction can send them away for years potentially losing it all.

The fact that something like going out of town without telling a parole officer or driving an ATV in the street, items that would be minor infractions for anyone else can equate to 4 years for him due to charges from when he was a teenager is completely unreasonable and insane. And if that isn’t enough, having a judge preside over a case that once requested to be mentioned in a song get to be the one that puts him in jail also seems like a conflict of interest, not to mention the clerk that asked for tens of thousands of dollars to send their child to college. it doesn’t get any more corrupt than that.

Executive produced by Jay-Z with a 2019 expected release date, the series will be “demonstrating the negative effects long-tail probation is having on urban communities of color,” according to an Amazon statement. “Not only will this documentary give viewers an unprecedented look at my life, but it will also allow me to use my public platform to highlight the need for criminal justice reform,” Mill said in a statement.

I would like to point out that in a Facebook Live video by the woman Kanye West said he liked the way she thinks, Candace Owens, she mentioned that Jay-Z and Beyonce no longer cared about black people but now only sought to gain power. If anything proves to the contrary and that they do in fact care about black people, it would be this move to have an open conversation on criminal justice reform to keep black people from being unnecessarily incarcerated. Kudos to you Jay for helping tell the facts and the story.

Glitzers, will you be tuning in to watch Meek Mill’s criminal justice reform Amazon docu-series?
