Meek Mill Changes His Mind, Decides Not To Visit White House To Talk Prison Reform
Earlier today, news broke that Meek Mill would be visiting the White House as to speak on prison reform. But he soon realized that that wasn’t the best idea and decided to pull out. “I was originally scheduled to be part of a panel on prison reform at the White House to help shed light on the issues within the system. Unfortunately, the focus turned to the President and myself which concerned me that it might take away from creating a positive result from today’s discussions,” Mill’s reps said in a statement. “TMZ” reported that a phone call from Jay-Z is what prompted Meek’s about-face, but according to Vulture, that report was false.
