Meek Mill Wants People To Stop Shooting Guns During New Year’s Celebrations

"Let’s update the hood rule book."

Meek Mill posed a suggestion to “the streets” that could potentially curb gun violence during New Year’s celebrations.

The Philly native shared a “PSA” on Instagram Sunday (Dec. 30), in an attempt to get people to stop shooting guns in celebration of the new year. “Instead of shooting off guns this #NewYears lets light a candle for our loved ones we lost by #Gunfire,” read a message posted to his Instagram account.

As Meek further explained in his Instagram caption, the idea is to flip “the script” for 2019.

“Why take a risk shooting ya gun in the air killing somebody by mistake or going to jail just tryna hear a gun ring! Let’s update the hood rule book from being stupid [to] moving like kings,” he wrote. “Let’s rep for the ones that ain’t here! We shouldn’t hear no shots in Philly, really the whole America!!!

Gun violence and prison reform, have been two of the social topics that Meek routinely speaks on since being released from prison in April.

Charlottesville Killer Receives Life Sentence Plus 419 Years

James Alex Fields Jr will spend the rest of his life behind bars for driving his car into a crowd of counter-protestors in Charlottesville, Va., which injured many and killed 32-year-old Heather Heyer.

According to reports, Judge Richard Moore sentenced the 22-year-old white supremacist to life in prison plus 419 years. Fields, who reportedly had a picture of Adolf Hitler framed by his bed, drove from Ohio to attend the 2017 Unite The Right Rally with fellow racists and neo-Nazi's to protest the removal of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee statue.

The event also drew Heyer and other counter-protestors who marched against white nationalism. The violence forced local authorities to declare an unlawful assembly and begin the process of demobilizing everyone. Later on the same day, Fields drove his car into a crowd killing Heyer and hurting others.

The event caused already bubbling racial tensions in America to spill over when during a press conference Donald Trump blamed "both sides" for the turmoil.

DMX Is Cleared In The Case Of A 'Stolen' Corvette

Rapper DMX will reportedly not face any charges after it was believed his was driving a “stolen” vehicle back in May.

The rapper reportedly left a Los Angeles restaurant in another person’s car, after the valet accidentally gave him and his entourage the wrong set of keys. The valet mix-up created a potential issue for X, as authorities believed that driving a stolen vehicle was grounds for a probation violation as it pertained to his tax evasion case. Police reportedly were able to retrieve the vehicle, and no one was arrested.

“DMX met with his probation officer and everything is fine,” the MC’s attorney, Murray Richman, told TMZ. “We're told the rapper's in the clear as far as a potential probation violation goes.”

As far as his professional life goes, DMX reportedly joined the cast of Chronicle Of A Serial Killer back in April. He also gave a rousing sermon at Kanye West’s Sunday Service performance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in the spring.

“Doors that were once closed are now open for me,” he said. “I am God’s favorite child…I have supernatural increases and promotion. Like the restoration of everything the devil has stolen from me. This is the day, time, and moment for me to experience the free grace of God.”

Last week, the producer and artist was asked by People about the latest wave of female rappers taking over the charts. He stated that while he appreciates them, he believes they’re “all rapping about the same thing.”

“I don’t think they’re showing us who’s the best rapper,” he said. “For me, it’s like strippers rapping. As far as rap goes, I’m not getting who is the best rapper.” In a video, Cardi stated the reason why she raps about her body, and then praised artists like Tierra Whack, Kamaiyah and CHIKA for bringing something different to the game.
