(AllHipHop News) Ar-Ab has had his issues with fellow Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill. Those past differences did not prevent Ab from supporting Meek’s decision to testify at a probation hearing that he is not a real gangster.
Some observers questioned whether Meek’s admission that he was now a full-time entertainer and no longer a criminal would hurt his reputation with street rap fans. According to Ab, the “R.I.C.O.” rhymer did exactly what he was supposed to do.
“He’s a rapper now. He’s not shooting nobody or selling drugs. He’d be stupid,” Ab told Mikey T The Movie Star and Clark Martin of ReportCardRadio. “He ain’t no gangster. He’s a millionaire.”
Ab continued, “That man took the stand in his own defense. To get out of jail, you tell the judge whatever the f*ck he needs to hear.”
The OBH member added that if he was in a similar situation he would deny any criminal activity as well. He also suggested no one should be criticizing Meek for his statements in court.
“Everybody should understand that. You shouldn’t judge a man for saying what he gotta say to get his ass out of jail in his own defense,” said Ab. “Now if somebody takes the stand against somebody else locked up, that’s a whole different ballgame.”
