Meek Mill has always represented the streets both in and out of the booth. However, in the midst of recent shooting deaths across the country, the Philly rapper took to Instagram to say that he is going to change his lyrical content after his upcoming Dreamchasers 4 mixtape as he furthers his role as a leader in the streets.
“AFTER DC4 I won’t continue to rap about extreme violence!!!” he says for the caption of a picture of him boarding an airplane. “But I will remain to let my people know in these terrible environments to adapt and survive at any cost because ‘US BLACK PEOPLE ARE STILL AT WAR WITH OURSELVES AND THE SYSTEM IN REAL LIFE! #grammarcheck I don’t talk the ‘AMERICAN ENGLISH’ because I don’t believe in it…I never cared about writing or speaking that way! I dont dress that way …. I’m doing me better yet doing #us”
