Fresh off his release from prison two weeks back, Meek Mill has weighed in on fellow rapper Kanye West’s questionable remarks about slavery. Like many of West’s celebrity pals, Mill urged the prominent Donald Trump supporter to think about the facts.
“I talked to him myself,” Mill told CNN Tuesday, May 8 before his speech at the Innocence Project gala. “Just before you speak, think 10 times before you speak … make sure you’re educated about the things you’re speaking on and really addressing things in the proper way.”
West drummed up controversy last month when he posted several tweets backing Donald Trump, which were also affirmed in an interview with Charlamagne Tha God. Among the messages, West declared he and Trump had shared “dragon energy” and proudly showed off his signed “Make America Great Again” hat.
But major contention emerged when West told “TMZ Live” last week that slavery sounds “like a choice” after enslaved Africans remained in that state for 400 years.
