Rapper Meek Mill discusses how his album “Championships” paints the grim realities of prison and breaks down what people don’t understand about the criminal justice system.
awesome guy, incredible story, heartbreaking topic
Recently in Vienna I was in a queue at a supermarket and an African American man started arguing across the queue, that they should open another cash because the queue was so long. As he was arguing it slowly got to him that everyone was bothered of him and there was this occasional someone throwing an argument or a complaint about him in. He started reassuring everyone he was an upright citizen paying his bills like everyone else, he came from America and lived in Austria for 8 years or so and had a job and was working honest work and all. And the woman at the cash thought he was insulting her because he started speaking English and kept switching languages and had quite a deep voice with a thick (African) American accent. (and your average citizen might understand normal British English, but not strong accents) So I started translating to calm people down “he’s not insulting you, ma’am, he’s just not done asking for a 2nd cash”. So the 2nd cash was finally opened, the man paid for his stuff and on the way out he kept explaining everyone he’s an honest man and doesn’t mean any harm.
I realized … he really comes from a different culture. Because in Europe for your average citizen, people with African heritage are just people who happen to have dark complexion, but in America there seems to exist a stereotype. Here if someone’s in a shop and a “black guy” is with them in the queue, nobody’s thinking “Shit does he have a gun? Is he going to rob the shop?”. At worst people wonder “where does he come from and what language does he speak?” … you know … CASUAL stupidity.
You could see that Trevor could truly relate to this guy. That was pretty much the fate of many a black man in South Africa when he was growing up. And pretty much now.
This kind of work and so much I have seen recently tell me Trevor officially owns this show. I am so impressed with his growth and consistent talent. Amazing work!
….”And the justice reform too.” ?
Meek really care bout his people.
He’s the best spokesperson for prison reform. Good to see him on a win streak. He knows exactly what he’s talking about. Salute…?
❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Love for Meek mill and Trevor Noah

Not a fan of his yell rap but proud of him for getting a spotlight on this important topic.
I never thought I’d feel sympathy for Meek Mill but fuck. Might actually give “Championships “ a listen.

I HAVE AN IDEA I JUST PUT ON PAPER THIS MORNING!!!!! PLEASE GET IN CONTACT WITH ME SO WE CAN DISCUSS IT!!!!!! I BELIEVE THIS MAKES SENSE!!!!!!
Welcome to the United Snakes, land of the thief, home of the slave.
Trevor is one of the best interviewers.
Meek has grown so much
I 100% agree, and so do many others. I give it to this man for doing what others will not.
Slavery will never be over as long as white people are in control.
Meek Luther King ? His a blessing
