Meek Mill has made a concerted effort to advocate for criminal justice reform since his release from jail some time ago.

Most recently, Meek, in conjunction with the REFORM Alliance, joined Virginia Governor Ralph Northam for the signing of the state’s new probation reform bill, HB 2038. Meek went onto open up about his experience with the criminal justice system and how he plans to remedy some of its many issues.

“I get paid not a dollar to this … I am a rapper, this is the business I chose, this is the dream I chose, that’s how I got in a position to be here,” Meek said. “I try to dance the lines of remaining classy, but still keeping the ear of younger people, and being able to speak to the governor today and being able to close gaps … I have the resources and I’m in position to do better.”
