Meek Mill Talks Prison Labor In Video Clip For "Stay Woke"

Although Meek Mill’s current legal woes aren’t over yet, the Philly rapper is back in the studio doing what he loves — making music. On Saturday (June 23), Meek shared a video clip teasing a possible single titled “Stay Woke.”

In the clip, Meek is heard discussing his time in prison and the fact prison workers get paid .80 cents an hour.

“That’s slavery and I talk about that in this song,” he says. “I just went to jail for six months and read a lot of books. Went through some real experiences relatable to a lot of people, a lot of people going through the system.

“I felt like I gotta responsibility from when I was locked up with certain dudes and me leaving knowing that I got the support I got. I got billionaires. I got the support from fans and people. I got a lot of resources. A lot of people stuck in that position don’t got resources … I always felt I was responsible to reach back for a few and help them move forward.”

Meek was released from Chester State Prison in April after serving six months for probation violations. Judge Genece Brinkley, who’s been overseeing his weapons charges case since 2007, originally sentenced him to two to four years, which many deemed harsh.
