One day after his release, Meek Mill sat down with NBC Nightly News’ Lester Holt to discuss his incarceration, being released, and the justice system as a whole.
When asked if he felt free, he simply said no.
“I ain’t feel free since I caught this case at age of 19. I’m 30 now.”
He has been on probation since the age of 19 after being accused of selling crack to an informant. He was then put in handcuffs outside his home, and allegedly had his head used to bust open the door to his house as Philadelphia’s Barcotics Field Unit obtained a warrant and was later arrested after finding $30,000 which belonged to his cousin.
During the interview, Meek addressed his celebrity status, how it helped him get released while addressing that there are many others who don’t have the same resources.
“I got a lot of important people depending on me,” he said. “And I’m not talking about them people, public officials, I’m talking about the men that’s depending on me going through the same thing I’m going through.”
The full interview will be released later this week.
