Watch the Philly MC discuss the POTUS and prison reform.

(AllHipHop News) Last week, representatives for Meek Mill made it clear that Jay-Z wasn't involved in the decision not to attend the Prison Reform Summit at the White House. Meek further addressed the rumored Hov connection with the cancellation in an interview with the Power99 radio station.

"That's not true at all," said the Philadelphia emcee. "I just ain't feel good about it. I gotta put my name at risk. I was kinda excited because the bills they're trying to pass are actually helping 4,000 people be released [and] not having women chained to the bed when they're going through labor."

He added, "I was actually excited to be apart of it. The day before I just started thinking about it, it's too much criticism. Me and the president, we represent two different things. It's two Americas. I really represent the other side of America. If it's not anything extraordinary that I'm making change for, I don't really want to sit down as of right now."

Meek Mill went on to say he has no hard feelings for Donald Trump. The Wins & Losses album creator also suggested someone will eventually have to meet with the Trump Administration in order to change certain policies, but Meek believes he's probably not the most effective individual to take on that role.
