Meek Mill has gone from gritty, underground battle rapper to icon of resistance against injustice since his entrance to the rap game almost a decade ago, especially since his most recent incarceration left him even more outspoken about the ills of the criminal justice system. So it’s only right for him to take on the story of another social justice hero, Colin Kaepernick, on his upcoming album.
