Philadelphia rap superstar Meek Mill might have some explaining to do. The rap heavyweight is catching heat after Roc Nation CEO Desiree Perez was included in the 143 pardons issued by then-President Donald Trump before he left office this week.
Meek Mill + JAY-Z Called Out Over Pardon
Industry veterans Akademiks and Funk Flex raised some questions about how it all went down. Funk called on music mogul JAY-Z, who owns Roc Nation, and Ak went at signed Roc Nation artist Meek to ask for an explanation.
“Roc Nation CEO and federal cooperator who took down a cartel, Desiree Perez, also known as Meek Mill’s boss and JAY-Z’s hired CEO – she has been granted clemency, granted a pardon by Donald Trump for her diligent work in snitching. Je*us Chr*st! It will be marked from the record that she was ever convicted of any crime to do with narcotics, which also will write away the record that she also cooperated. Ain’t that a prison reform! I would like to hear Meek Mill’s opinion on this. I would like to hear what he thinks because he’s involved in prison reform.”
“Congrats to JayZ and Roc Nation Ceo on the Donald Trump Pardon! MONDAY 7PM WE GOT A STORY TO TELL! #JustMyOpinion ( Guys if I can’t go to the brunch I understand ) 😂😂😂😂😂😂 I NEED TO GET MY FACTS IN ORDER BEFORE I DISCUSS! I NEVER NEW THIS UNTIL TODAY???? HOW DOES EVERYONE FEEL ABOUT THIS?”
Meek Mill x Desiree Perez
Maybach Music Group’s Meek Mill, Future and Snoop Dogg previously had some explaining to do according to Tekashi 6ix9ine. The hip-hop trio recently felt the wrath of rap’s biggest troll and underground investigator after getting accused of having informant connections. Back in June 2020, 6ix9ine didn’t hold back on trying to expose Meek Mill for his publicized anti-snitching stance. Tekashi accused him of having a close-knit relationship with Roc Nation’s Desiree Perez.
“The world is full of hate right now. I’ma show you a lot of things right now. I’ma show you how this rap game is full of liars. I’ma show you how this rap game full of rats. I’ma show you how the rap game really works. The rap game don’t want you to know certain stuff. I’ma expose the rap game right now, ’cause I got facts. ‘The story that spooked Dash revealed how Perez, the wife of longtime Jay Z wingman Juan Perez, became a cooperating witness for the DEA in the 1990s. After her 1994 arrest for possession of 35 kilos of cocaine, Perez struck a deal with the feds, agreeing to wear hidden wires to record her meetings with major cocaine traffickers. Her undercover informant work won her courtroom praise from federal prosecutors after she helped them break up major drug deals in Puerto Rico and Colombia.’ Meek Mill, you can’t pick and choose who you want to call rats. This is public information. Ever since Nicki left you, you are a nobody. Did you forget who you was? I forgot what Drake said, what did Drake say? ‘Was that your tour or your girl’s tour?’” -Tekashi 6ix9ine’s Instagram Live
6ix9ine Keeps Going In
6ix9ine took things even further by trying to single out Future and Snoop Dogg. Tekashi called out Future for associating with ‘snitches’ and said there’s paperwork proving the Dogg Father secretly cooperated with cops in the 90’s.
“If you chilling with a rat, right, makes you a rat, you sir, Future, Meek, you’re a f*cking rat. Let me play this back to you real quick – Perez struck a deal with the feds agreeing to wear wires.’ … For Snoop Dogg, I’m on you now. Right? For Snoop Dogg, you wanna talk all this rat sh*t. I exposed you already. You hit me up in the DM talking about throw up the white flag, please. You said some straight old head sh*t. Listen, hear me out when I say this, you can’t get mad at me for exposing the truth because for the two years I was locked up, you know what y’all said? Y’all aired me out for the two years, y’all had me, y’all aired me. I’m just replying. Tell me if I’m right or wrong. Wasn’t Snoop Dogg and Meek Mill couldn’t get my d*ck out their mouth the whole time I was locked up?” -Tekashi 6ix9ine’s Instagram
