Meek Mill is the subject of an upcoming documentary for Amazon. The documentary, entitled Free Meek, takes a hard look at the Philly rapper’s rise to fame and his ongoing struggle within the criminal just system.
Meek shared the trailer for the Amazon Original film on Sunday (Mar. 17). He said the documentary “explores my life and the flaws in the criminal justice system that have haunted me and others like me.” In addition to showing clips of the rapper performing onstage, it revisits his 2007 case, which led to his lengthy probation sentence.
“I never really looked at it like a nightmare,” Meek says in the trailer. “I looked at it as real life for a black kid in America. It’s just real life.”
As you may know, Meek was sentenced to two to four years in state prison for violating the terms of his probation. He spent nearly five months in prison before he was released in Apr. 2018, pending the outcome of an appeal to the Pennsylvania supreme court.
Free Meek is slated to premiere on Amazon this summer 2019. Watch the trailer below.
