Meek Mill Is Suing The City Of Philadelphia
Meek Mill"It was raw. They was on they South shit and where they come from. They wasn’t trying to impersonate nobody else, trying to do it for the radio. They was doing it for them, doing it for where they come from. That’s what I liked about them the most. I always liked people that stand for where they come from. A lot of people try to alter my music and get me to do certain type of music. Nah, I do where I come from in this. I have a beat that I like. It can be any type of beat. It can be poppy. If I like that beat, I feel like flowing off that beat, that’s what I'ma do. But let me just do what I do with my music.
"I think mainly probably their relationships [was my favorite thing about them]. Just growing up in this game and sticking together for as long as they did because you don’t really find too many people that stick together as long in this game. Nine times out of ten, after five years running, the money get involved and other people get involved. Everything starts to split. I think their relationship is my favorite part. Loyalty."
Meek Mill is suing the city of Philadelphia for what he claims was a wrongful arrest made in 2012 on Halloween where cops arrested him for refusing to let them search his vehicle when the police officers thought they smelled weed, according to TMZ. Meek Mill claims not only did that arrest make him miss his flight to Atlanta, it costed him $22k on the cancelled jet, $39K appearance fee for the Atlanta party he missed and destroyed his chance of getting a multi-million dollar shoe contract.
According to the lawsuit docs, he claims he took a hit in negotiating a $2 million deal with Puma because of the negative press which forced him to settle for a mere $650K
Meek is suing the city of Philly for false imprisonment, invasion of privacy and a undisclosed amount of money.
