Meek Mill has been an advocate for prison reform due to his interactions with the justice system. Being wrongly prosecuted the Philly rapper feels the need to lead change for the disenfranchised.
New York rapper Bobby Shmurda is currently incarcerated and spoke with Swaggy Sie on SiriusXM’s Hip Hop Nation and was asked about whether or not he would link up with the likes of Meek Mill, Jay Z, T.I. and more on social justice issues. His answer was interesting.
Like I tell people all the time, I respect what he’s doing. I can’t do it though,” he said. “I can talk to the kids, but I ain’t about to be sitting here protesting and politicking for no motherf*cking cops because them mtherf**kers don’t care. They been killing motherf**kers since Rodney King.”Bobby Shmurda
Bobby Shmurda went on to explain how he viewed civil rights legend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and why he saw him as a hero.
I tell people all the time, like a positive person I’ve seen, like Martin Luther King,” Shmurda continued. “I love what Martin Luther King did. I respect him because I couldn’t do it. Motherfuckers hitting him with rocks, doing all types of s**t, and he stayed positive. I can’t do it, know what I mean? I’ll come talk to the kids. That’s about it. But I respect everything that they do.Bobby Shmurda
