Meek Mill is not only one of the biggest rappers of this decade; he has become a high-profile activist behind the ongoing efforts in criminal justice reform. Having been arrested at 19 years-old, the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania MC has been on probation for more than 10 years. The terms of his probation not only limited him as a recording and performing artist, but also led to his 2017 arrest. That incarceration was the latest pitfall in a career marred by “wins and losses.” Long after Robert Rihmeek Williams left a Chester, Pennsylvania prison in April of 2018, he continues to fight for others who are wrongfully sentenced, and put in a system that can seem like a trap.

With JAY-Z, Philadelphia 76ers owner Michael Rubin, and city District Attorney Larry Krasner in his corner, Meek is documenting this ongoing and historic battle. Amazon Prime has partnered with Roc Nation to produce a docuseries titled Free Meek. Hour-long episodes will detail Meek’s life story from his traumatic childhood right up to his controversial 2017 sentencing and subsequent release. The show will endeavor to uncover the corruption in the justice system at several levels, starting with the Philadelphia Police Department, the courts, and the prison industry.

Meek’s “What’s Free” (which plays in the trailer) collaborator JAY-Z also executive produces and appears in the documentary. In the teaser, Jay says, “This guy got locked up at 19, and been on probation for 11 years.” And later in the trailer he tells viewers, “[There are] millions of people like Meek.”

Previously, Jay and Roc Nation have produced films documenting the lives (and deaths) of Kalief Browder and Trayvon Martin.
