Meek Mill

Hip-Hop Rumors: Not Everyone In Philly Has Love For Meek Mill – “Amen” Boycotted


Although Meek Mill has brought Philly back into the rap game in a major way – even possibly bringing about a new and improved State Property – not everyone in Philly has love for the rugged rapper. According to the Philadelphia Daily News, Reverend Jomo K. Johnson of the Open Air Church is not a fan of Meek’s hit single, “Amen”, and has gone so far as to organize a boycott of the song.

“I’m a Hip-Hop fan, but I believe there is a need to really call him out and say enough is enough,” said Reverend Jomo K.Johnson. “He seems to really be using the church as a backdrop and a parallel for some of the sinful things that he does.”

Johnson is getting his congregation together and is hawking the self-published e-book No Amen: Why Boycotting Meek Mill Will Help Save Hip-Hop.The reverend is selling the e-books for $2.99 a piece – major side eye!!! This Reverend is no stranger to controversy, and has previously targeted Lil Wayne via the book Deadest Rapper Alive, which challenges Weezy’s self-proclaimed title as the “greatest rapper alive.”

“As a Hip-Hop fan, I want to encourage every rap fan in Philadelphia who is a believer in Jesus Christ, to boycott Meek Mill until he acknowledges this blatant disrespect, and being resident of North Philadelphia and pastor, I revoke Meek’s ‘hood pass’ until this happens.”

Do you think this Reverend is boycotting Meek for the money and publicity, or is he really concerned for the church?

    guess i should go hear the song 1st before i comment …

    • johnblacksad

      lol… i see you didn’t rush to listen to Drmchsrs2 like everybody did

      Amen is just alrite… Drake brought the softness out of the track

      What about this G-Pastor, ‘giving’ and ‘revoking’ hood passes…?!

      And i have a question for EL_Bark …where they wildin the most, where the most ferocious wolves at… North Philly or South Philly?… seems like both are pretty hard to the core

      • immackulate

        nah meek dont really do it for me … he just decent w/ no REAL social commentary – still give him props cuz i remember yrs back watching all those
        PHILLY niggahs freestyling and to see the little niggah make something of himself somewhat is applaudable – he might be worthy of a download here and
        there BUT NO DOUGH

        Joey Jihad gotta be kicking himself right now …

      • johnblacksad

        Oh yeah, i remember them Philly ninjaz street rap-battles… some ninjaz was flowin for real…

        I’ve always had a thing for E.Ness (no Frank Ocean here) and i also remember a ninja, Young Rome… dude was mad nice! I don’t recall Joey Jihad tho

      • immackulate

        youtube that E/NESS vs SOLOMON – the white boy gave NESS the bidness – classic!!!

      • Jas1ne

        Joey Jihad, that was dude that got layed out when he was freestyling right? 

      • EL_BARK

        Yeah.

        But dude that hit him was a boxer, and got murder with in days.

      • immackulate

        yessir

      • EL_BARK

        Depends on who you asked.
        Me i from both, moms was from north & pop from south.
        So i have no bias. To be honest its wolves everyehere you go.
        Even the middle class sections & upper middle class sections,
        (uptown) got their fair share of gun play now. ( cassidy robbery & murder case)
        Tommy hill got killed, in a nice section of the city. lot of hustlers live in one place & do they dirt else where. and shooters can be any & everywhere.

        In my opinion your boy jay said it best.
        “south philly motherfukers kill at will”. SP is viewed by other parts of the city as grimey,
        Shiesty, if you aint from down, dont be down here. And sp cats known for robbing,
        And Taking other niggas shet. Alot of goes back to black mob days. Although if north philly cats, that was a part of it to. South philly is relitivity (sp) smaller compare to north.
        But in my opinion, they are just as grimey, depending on what side is waring.
        If sp is going to war, its going to be a lot of bodies dropping.
        Just like if north philly is waring, they bodies count is going to be up there.
        Same thing with west philly & south west philly.
        If i had to pick i woyld say south philly, cause south west philly,
        Is really like south philly, is only a small bridge that seperate the hoods.
        And most south west cats come from SP, or got ties because they so close.
        So if you put south & southwest philly as one. South side got it.

        But north philly aint no oush over, and mainly the hood are segregated when doing business.
        You tell a cat yiu from south philly, he going to watch you closely.
        Cause SP niggas have a rep for not being trusted.
        Also its a little easier to fit into north. We as south philly,
        Niggas will test you, & if you getting money cats will pay you a visit.
        A lot of cats cant cut in SP, & get chase out.

        And back in the day, if you came to a concert. Chances are you was getting robbed,
        If you was flashing.
        “is shell top & lees you was fresh to def
        Run dmc @ the spectrum for fresh fest.
        South philly cats used to run that there
        They’ll take you shoes & jackets
        Dont come back there.”
        Jakk frost ” philly love”
        But its really all the same. But.

        When it comes to the jail system. South philly run the jail.
        Hands down.

      • johnblacksad

        now that’s a Philly report! If i make it to that Budweiser festival, i’m gonna leave all my nice sh!t at home! I don’t wanna be there lookin like a lamb!

  • sakiru oresanwo

    I believe everyone has the freedom to thank God for whatever they believe he has done in their lives and I do kinda understand where the Pastor is coming from but if Meek wants to thank the lord because “there are some bad b*@tches in the building” then let him,LOL

  • illymac

    “As a Hip-Hop fan, I want to encourage every rap fan in Philadelphia who is a believer in Jesus Christ, to boycott Meek Mill until he acknowledges this blatant disrespect, and being resident of North Philadelphia and pastor, I revoke Meek’s ‘hood pass’ until this happens.”

    Wow a pastor revoking hood passes..
    thats deep.. lol…

  • Lmfao at a pastor saying Meek’s hood pass is revoked. He’s real for that

  • TruthSerum

    I never heard this song and I’m not religious or nothing but I always got a kick out of rappers who will praise the lord in one line and then rap about how much fun their having selling crack & pimpin hoes in the next. Hypocrisy that obvious you cant even be mad about, cause your obviously dealing with an idiot

    • johnblacksad

      You’re missin the whole point… when you sell crack and pimp hoes, that’s when you need to praise the lord the most!

      No matter what you do, you’re not supposed to ever stop praising Almighty Lord

      • S

        That’s cool in all but if you truly acknowledge God then you recognize what is right and what is wrong in your representation of God. You can’t say God say’s its wrong to pimp or sell crack and then you go and pimp and sell crack because you say I have to eat by any means. We all know that’s not how it works. Nobody is perfect but we can’t just go around thinking that alot of the stuff we do is cool with God because we know its not.  

      • Nigga what!? Smh I think what you really mean is when you do dirt is when you NEED God the most. You just did a remix of that biblical principle but got it COMPLETELY wrong. lol Think about it. Respect….

  • rep87

    MEEK JUST KEEP DOING YOU ITS ALLWAYZ SOME HATERS OUT HERE, NAME OF THE GAME GET MONEY AND TAKE CARE OF YOU & YOUR FAMILY MAY GOD BLESS !

    • johnblacksad

      Sheeeit… even the pastor knows this… it’s all about gettin that guap!

      I see him sellin tha e-book for da low on the side… on some M.O.B. sh!t…
      Money Over Bible! …thinks he’s slick!

      ‘Ooh Rev. ain’t right, his church ain’t right…’ *in my GFK voice*

  • immackulate

    blasphemus/hyprocrisy … to an extent, but i be doing the same shyt IN MY REAL LIFE
    so whom am i to judge LOL

  • $17637591

    The song is hard but i have to agree with the Rev. The song is highly offensive but ni99az will do anything for a hit. “What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Matt 16:26

    • johnblacksad

       “Do not judge, and you will not be judged” Luke 6:37

    • EL_BARK

      Amen.!!!!!!!!

  • johnblacksad

    e-book… no paper, no printing… this Reverend is working with a business plan i’m tellin ya!

    Plus he gon have the whole congregation download that sh!t…

    …more volumes to come!

    Hustle Hard… no Maino.

  • LOL they fell for the bait

  • AMEN MEANS SO BE IT….i dont see him not PLAYING RAY CHARLES who used Church Type music to sing his songs!!!  I BET THAT NIGGA GOT “RAY” in his DVD collection… THIS MAKE ME SICK TO MY STOMACH ANOTHER NIGGA TRYING TO BRING DOWN SOMEONE LIVING HIS DREAM!!

  • AK

    Vinnie Paz is GOAT OF PHILLY 

    • Kevin Farley

      vinnie paz aint from philly 

  • Big Ice Bastardman ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    ” I revoke Meek’s ‘hood pass’ until this happens.” Oooooooh nooooooooo!

  • He is right though…I don’t think “Amen” in the context is ok as used in this song…I’m all for freedom of speech but some words should not be played with and he definitely was offensive with this one..As was Trey Songz with his “Bitches and the Drinks” song.

  • TheBigCheeFa

    i dont approve of that song though he couldve named that song anything besides amen.

  • EL_BARK

    To be honest. This pastor is doing exactly want meek is.
    Frauding to make a buck.
    This clown not even from philly,
    How the fuk he going to revoke a hood pass.
    Also what reverend you know talknin that manner?
    Revoke somebody hood pass, is banning a niggah from the hood.
    Really???? A pastor talking bout, dont let me see you?

    I might go to this niggah church on sunday & go in on him. & front of his congregation.

    As much shet goes on in a church???? He got some nerve.
    Then you selling an e-book for 3.00

    If boy cotting meek really meant that much to you, why are you teying to mske a profit off your crusades. This niggah slick. Also

    Amen- was taught tonus by whites folks in slavery.
    You are really payingg homage to amen-ra.

    Just like jesus name is not jesus……. Wont get that deep.
    This niggah just want publicity, and trying to come up off the niggah.
    And i dont he bang meek music, but this pastor r is a bottom feeder.

    • johnblacksad

      LMAO! Maybe he part-time reverend, part-time bangin in da hood… lol… this rev. cray!

    • johnblacksad

      i ain’t even read the whole thing…’makin profit off crusades’… LMAO at this reverend

  • As a christian I feel the number one goal should be learning bible doctrine not worrying about entertainers and being activists

  • You cant use the word AMEN WHY?? because it is used in a church?? NIGGA PLEASE.. This is hip-hop you can use whatever you feel like first off

    2nd off AMEN MEANS SO BE IT!!! So you mean to tell me rappers cant say so be it????

    c’mon SON

    Most and i MEAN 98 Percent of the people who call they selves christians dont even know off hand the men who wrote the bible..or the men who put the WHOLE bible together..like there not worthy of being known…lol…and then they dont even know where the stories come from thats in them like they didnt have them before the “authors” were born..and black pastors dont follow christ they follow black culture in regards to how they yell and scream to get you to “FEEL” something instead of learning ANYTHING…there all about emotion..bottom line

    SO Jay-z Can call himself HOV as in regard to calling himself JEHOVAH in hip hop aka THE GOD MC…but MEEK MILLZ who hasnt even put out an ALBUM cant make a SONG called AMEN…lol…NIGGA PLEASE

  • Sucker gone say i revoke his hood pass…like Jesus deals with hood passes and who can and cant come threw..when he even wanted ” THE CHILDREN” to come to him…what kind of pastor is this..how is he following JESUS?? How can he claim to be a follower of christ??

    The bible says:
    1 John 4:20
    New International Version (NIV)20 Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.

    • sakiru oresanwo

      • sakiru oresanwo

        I second that notion

  • Southcidal

    Rev needs to be focusing on more important things like lowering crime in North Philly instead of being concerned with a song. Channel that time and energy into saving the youth.

  • Kevin Farley

    the pastor aint even from philly he from ga or somethin

  • YoungPrime

    I’m not a big fan of Meek Mills but why the hell is a Pastor talking about “Hood passes” anyway? I question his “Heaven Pass” at this point..
