This time the Dreams and Nightmare rapper is making sure inmates and staff are staying safe amid this coronavirus outbreak. 

Recently, Meek Mill teamed up with Jay-z to donate over 100,000 surgical masks to several correctional facilities across the United States. 

The donation was made through the pair’s criminal justice organization, REFORM Alliance, where Meek and Hov unveiled their new policy, focusing on the prevention of the virus spreading behind bars.

So far, masks are set to be distributed to the Tennessee Department of Corrections, Mississippi State Penitentiary, and New York’s Riker’s Island Correctional. 

As of Thursday, 231 inmates and 223 staff members at New York City jails have tested positive for COVID-19, which has become one of the country’s largest outbreaks behind bars. 

Meek Mill and Jay-z formed the REFORM alliance just last year alongside 76ers co-owner, Michael Rubin and New England Patriots owner, Robert Kraft.

The 32-year-old rapper is being sued by a fired Philadelphia police officer for using her image in his critically acclaimed Amazon documentary, ‘Free Meek.’

The docu-series featured Sequeta Williams in a brief clip while discussing Philadelphia’s “do not call” list — which consists of officers banned from testifying in court due to their lack of credibility.

“The DA’s Office generated a specific list that has 66 names of police officers on it,” Bridge says in the documentary. “There have been findings by the Police Department the officers have lied to Internal Affairs, to other police officers, or in court,” says assistant defender Brad Bridge in the episode while Willam’s picture is briefly displayed.

In the lawsuit filed last week, Willams’s defense argued that her image and the narration defamed her reputation by implying that she was a ‘dirty and dishonest’ cop.

Williams landed on the “do not call” list after allegedly pulling a gun out during an off-duty dispute at a local North Philadelphia bar two years ago, where she was charged and later acquitted.

While neither parties have yet to comment on the lawsuit, Willaims seeks to collect more than $75,000 in damages from the rapper, Jay-Z, Amazon, and others in federal court.

1. Launching Dream Chasers Records

Meek Mill will not only be signing deals, but he’ll also be handing them out. As previously mentioned, the Championships rapper will be partnering up with Roc Nation mogul, Jay-Z to launch his new record label, Dream Chasers Records. Mill plans to use his new position of power to give back to the next wave of artists.

2. Becoming the Co-owner of Lids

It is indeed true that the rapper wears many hats! From rapper to social justice advocate, Mill is a true entrepreneur at heart. That’s why it came to no surprise when he announced that he would become the co-owner of Lids, an American retail chain that specializes in athletic hats. When asked about his new venture, The rapper said, “I’ve been shopping at Lids my whole life, wearing hats, fitted, of course. It was something I ain’t have to think twice about and always believed in.”

3. His Devotion to Prison reform 

The rapper is changing the game in all areas, even when it comes to prison reform. Earlier this year, Mill partnered up with Jay-Z to form the REFORM Alliance, an organization geared to decrease the number of people serving unjust parole and probation sentences. Mill received a 2- to 4-year prison sentence in 2017 after violating probation for riding a motorcycle. The rapper now aims to make sure others don’t receive similar harsh sentences.

With all of his recent success, we can’t wait to see what other endeavors Mills will unleash in the future!

Meek Mill is getting a lot of love for his work as a criminal reform advocate. During his stop in Connecticut on Tuesday night the “Dangerous” rapper received a key to the city of Connecticut from Rep. Brandon McGee, he also gave Meek a proclamation that March 16th is “Meek Mill Day”.

Van Jones stopped in Connecticut on Monday to talk to former inmates and the governor,  Ned Lamont about Meek’s REFORM Alliance.

“Too often when people come home from prison, if they’ve done well on the inside, they’ve taken classes, they’ve gotten certificates, they think they’re going to come home and do well, and they find doors closed in their faces,” said Van.

The REFORM Alliance was formed by Meek Mill, JAY-Z, Sixers co-owner Michael Rubin, and others that will help restore voting rights to former inmates as well as work to free people from jail who haven’t been convicted of a crime and are in jail simply because they can’t raise bail.
