Philadelphia Assistant District Attorney Warns Meek Mill About Lyrics
Meek Mill’s Dreamchasers 2 mixtape crashed popular mixtape website, Datpiff.com, when it dropped back on May 7. To date, the mixtape has received nearly five million streams and downloads on the site.
One of the millions listening was apparently Philadelphia’s assistant District Attorney Noel Ann DeSantis. She caught wind of certain Meek lyrics bashing her.
Meek referenced DeSantis on his track, “The Ride,” off his Dreamchasers 2 mixtape, rapping: “The D.A. said she hate me but I don’t understand/When I just rocked a show in front of 50,000 fans/I think that bitch racist, she probably in a clan.”
That didn’t sit too well with DeSantis, who offered the caveat to “tread lightly” to Meek in Philly court, where the MMG rapper was yesterday (July 31) for a status hearing related to prior gun and drug charges.
“Everyone is entitled to free speech, but the defendant obviously has a personal issue with this prosecutor,” DeSantis said to Fox Philly. “Lobbing personal insults, it just tries to dissuade the prosecution or dissuade the judge from focusing on the defendants actual actions. He certainly tells his opinion, but when you’re under supervision you have to respect the judge, the prosecutor, the police.”
Unapologetic, Meek retorted that he was rapping how he truly felt.
“DeSantis never says anything good about me,” Meek told the judge in court, as reported by Fox Philly. “I rap with my heart; it’s how I feel. She’s talking down to me every time. She’s talking about me like I’m a criminal. I just make sure I give back to my community, show love and motivate the kids.”—Jakinder Singh
