(AllHipHop News) Meek Mill continues to rack up proclamations for his work to affect the American criminal justice system. The REFORM Alliance co-founder was just recognized with a "Meek Mill Day" by the Atlanta City Council.
The Philadelphia-raised entertainer/activist has become an inspiration for other individuals that have had to deal with the prison-industrial complex. However, "Hot N*gga" rapper Bobby Shmurda has a different opinion about Meek's advocacy.
"I respect what he's doing. I can't do it though," Shmurda told SiriusXM’s Hip-Hop Nation. "I can talk to the kids, but I ain't about to be sitting here protesting and politicking for no motherf*cking cops because them motherf*ckers don't care. They been killing motherf*ckers since Rodney King."
The incarcerated Brooklyn native added, "Sh*t ain't gonna change because motherf*ckers start talking about it. We gotta take action... This sh*t is crazy. The most I can tell n*ggas is stay up out of their jail and stop putting money in their pockets."
Ackquille "Bobby Shmurda" Pollard pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy and one count of weapons possession. The 24-year-old Clinton Correctional Facility inmate was sentenced to seven years in prison.
While behind bars, Pollard was also convicted of promoting prison contraband. He reportedly has a parole hearing scheduled for August 2020 and could be released in December 2020.
