Meek Mill Is Free…At Least In His Powerful New Video
Although he is currently incarcerated 40 miles outside of Philadelphia, Meek Mill continues to represent for his city, and demonstrate the potency of last year’s Wins & Losses album. In his latest music video, Robert Rihmeek Williams is a free man delivering some of the best art of his 15-year-music career.
In “1942 Flows,” it’s clear that despite his current situation, the Maybach Music Group/Atlantic Records star is all about focus. The footage that features the rapper must have been recorded before being sentenced. Still, the veteran artfully conveys the sense that he’s fresh out the pen.
Meek Mill addresses the situation when a reporter at the start of the vid asks, “You’re just getting out of jail, how does it feel to be part of the system?” and he answers, “I feel like a free slave. I feel like I’ve been targeted by certain people.” This sentiment is a product of his recent, eye-opening Rolling Stone investigative feature. The video also shows the power of #Justice4Meek and #FreeMeekMill supporters.
The Dream Chasers CEO keeps his cadence calm and cool on the Dougie-produced “1942 Flows,” but one can feel his fire on the grabbing sung hook. At a time when people in the streets are rallying for Mill’s freedom, this Wins & Losses video is an intimate look at a man trying to come back in many ways.
