Meek Mill had an epic performance during the first annual Rolling Loud at the Mets Citi Field Stadium in Queens, NY. He performed mostly his hits from his latest album ‘Championships’ which the crowd thoroughly enjoyed. He also performed throwbacks for the real Meek Mill fans that’s been rocking with him since day one!
Rolling Loud had the biggest acts perform for the last set time on their three stages including Meek Mill, Travis Scott, Lil Uzi Vert and A$AP Rocky. There were also acts that fans looked forward to seeing such as Megan Thee Stallion, Blueface, Tyga, A Boogie, Trippie Red, Lil Tecca, Wu Tang Clan, Juice Wrld and more!
We all know Meek Mill for his strong beliefs and Activism towards prison reform. He was a victim of being treated unfairly by the justice system when he was still a target after already serving his time for a previous charge and completed Parole. A Philly judge sentenced the phenom rapper to 2 to 4 years in prison for violating probation in the nearly decade-old gun charge case.
Meek Mill knows far to well the way the system treats people of color, so he played the songs of the rappers that were banned from Rolling Loud by the NYPD. The performers included Casanova, Pop Smoke, 22GZ, Don Q, and Sheff G. They were banned by the NYPD because of “public safety concerns”.
Casanova took to Instagram to share his disdain for the NYPD’s decision of excluding him for the festival. He said it was unfair because his last felony conviction was 12 years ago.
Since Rolling Loud was free from any violent acts or unsafe situations, perhaps the performers that were banned will be allowed to perform next year. Meek Mill definitely showed love to them and hopefully he will try his best to put an effort to make changes as well.
