Rallying for Justice

Brooklyn-raised rapper Jay-Z has been on his 4:44 tour for weeks, sparking important conversations in each city he visits. He has used his concerts’ stages as a platform to speak about Colin Kaepernick’s 2016 protest, police brutality, and Meek Mill’s “heavy-handed” sentence. He most notably spoke out against Mill’s sentence in a Facebook post, which was deemed headline-worthy by several outlets.

Jay meaningfully wrote:

The sentence handed down by the Judge — against the recommendation of the Assistant District Attorney and Probation Officer — is unjust and heavy handed. We will always stand by and support Meek Mill, both as he attempts to right this wrongful sentence and then in returning to his musical career.

The “Run This Town” rapper sparked a flood of support for Meek from celebs like T.I., Kevin Hart, and Rick Ross. While it started on social media, several artist have gathered together to promote a rally begging for justice for the Philly rapper.
