Meek Mill just joined Gucci Mane in the music video for “Backwards” and announced his Legendary Nights tour with Future and now the Philly rapper delivers a trailer for his upcoming docuseries Free Meek.
Meek has teamed up with Amazon to go into detail about his fight against the criminal justice system following his incarceration for allegedly violating terms of his probation. Jay Z, Eli Holzman, Aaron Saidman, and Paul and Isaac Solotaroff serve as executive producers.
In the new trailer, the Championships rapper gave his side of the story dated back to his original arrest when he was much younger. There is also the issue of police corruption on the part of his arresting officer. The case spawned the #FreeMeek hashtag that went viral and helped lead to his release from prison.
Despite being the subject of countless headlines, Meek’s story is not unique to him; his experience has struck a chord with black families who deal with similar unjust circumstances. Through telling his story, Meek aims to shed light on a country-wide issue and give voice to others who don’t have the same platform as him.
“I decided to use my platform to help others who don’t have a voice,” Meek said.
Check out the full trailer below and stay tuned to Amazon Prime Video where the series will be launching on August 9.
