Meek Mill’s got one of the best redemption stories since his release from prison back in April of 2018. Today (March 14) it was announced that the “Championships” rapper will now have his own weekend in his home town of Philadelphia.

It’s “Millidelphia” for real, and no one deserves the honor more than Meek who consistently puts on for the city of Philadelphia, and the city is returning the love right back.  Today, Philly officially announced that March 14 will now be known as Meek Mill Day and will serve as the kickoff for Meek Mill Weekend. The rapper received city and state proclamations personally from State Senator Sharif Street.

During the meeting, City Council president Darrel L. Clarke opened things up by blessing Meek with the city proclamation. The news of the honor comes right on the heels of Mill’s Motivation Tour stopping in Philadelphia for two shows beginning on Friday (Mar.15) and on Saturday. Now it will be an official holiday the “Litty” rapper, his fans and the residents can look forward to celebrating from now on.

His hometown is following in the city of Houston who also awarded Meek his own day both citing the honors come in recognition of music, philanthropic efforts and championing for criminal justice reform. Not many rappers can boast having their own days in two separate cities.

Congrats to Meek for the well-deserved honors from both cities.
