Born and raised in Philadelphia, rapper and songwriter Meek Mill seems to be upset about recent gunfire incidents involving rappers Badazz Boosie and Benny the Butcher who got shot in the leg most recently. Apparently signalling about the same, the 33-year-old rapper took to his official Twitter account to speak about ending violence and extending his support to the Philly-based rappers.

The ‘Ima Boss’ hitmaker, who has more than 10 million followers on Twitter, posted a series of tweets. The first one said, “I’ll get all the main big artist in philly a deal if they put them bodies behind them and squash them beefs ...I hear about ....got some hot young bulls from my city but they all beefing!” He then posted, “And that’s just an idea but I’ll push thru with my city if y’all make it thing! It’s like 5 clicks that’s talented but they deep in! And get they most attention when they beefing!” The American rapper added another tweet saying, “And when I say bodies I mean friends or family you lost!”



 

 



 

 



 

 

Meek Mill’s fans were quick to react on his series of tweets. One user said, “The gun violence is bad in Philadelphia. We need all hands on deck and as many innovative ideas as possible! @MeekMill.” Another commented, “Man meek does anything to stay relevant. All this murders in Philly he don’t speak up. The protests he don’t show up. The looting he don’t speak out. He ain’t signing nobody cause he woulda been trying to help ppl.” Another stated, “I don’t agree with nothing meek said but stop acting like he the only rapper in Philly that can help y’all corny a** rappers.” One spoke about the late rapper King Von, who was recently shot and killed, “King von made songs with ni**as in Philly that meek could’ve been did a song with and help put ni**as on.” Another user tweeted, “The whole Philly just turned on Meek”, while another asserted, “The said Meek banned from Philly that’s crazy.”  One person said, “meek always tryna be martin luther king jr shut the f**k up frog @meekmill.”



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 

Meek Mill has been a strong advocate against violence in his hometown for a long time. In March 2020, the rap heavyweight had condemned the violence in his tweet saying, as reported by the pop culture website Complex, “The amount of animosity built up in my hood got the young bulls killing each other 200mph while a virus chasing their parents down to kill them too! Somebody gotta identify what happened to our mindframe in certain cities! The hate level too high for blacks.” Meek had also added then in one of his earlier tweets, "One day we gotta have the convo about the hood mindframe ni**as being brainwashed to fail ... simple as- if you went to jail 5 times for selling dope try weed or a job 'switch it up' if you got shot on that corner twice 'it’s ya life' try a new area ... at least try to win! ... I’m speaking on my city.. I just know we smarter than that!”
