Meek Mill Explains Why People In The Hood Are Outside Amidst Coronavirus
Rapper Meek Mill (real name Robert Rihmeek Williams) took to social media over the weekend, to express his feelings on why people in the hood are still outside amidst the Corona Virus pandemic. Meek Mill wrote,
“You can’t tell people to go inside because of a virus when your neighborhood look like this!”
He then shared a post of an Instagram page ‘kensingtonbeach_’, which highlights Kensington Beach, Philadelphia’s opiate epidemic.
“Not justifying anything just bringing you into a mindframe of why people in the hood still out”.
Lastly he wrote,
“Go in the crib.. I been in the house for about a week and a half tucked in…”
Fans seemed to have mixed feelings about Meek Mills tweets. This stirred up a lot of conversation amongst fans about Philly and what improvements need to be made.
This isn’t the first time the 32-year-old rapper has shared his insight on things happening in the hood. On Wednesday March 18th, Meek Mill was on twitter offering his fans a different perspective on the concept that everyone has money to stay home and stock on groceries during the corona virus pandemic.
“People where I’m from don’t have the money to run out and stock the fridge and stay in….when you from the #otherside you could literally watch the news and feel like they not even talking to you and your family so your mind frame will forever be with the streets!”
The philly native has always been very open about his upbringing and the challenges he faced being raised in Philadelphia.
