The Grammy-nominated emcee threatens to expose music companies.

(AllHipHop News) Back in July, Meek Mill announced that he was partnering with Jay-Z's Roc Nation in a joint venture to launch the Dream Chasers record label. Last night, Meek expressed some of his views about how other labels are signing young talent.

"What about major companies taking kids from the ghetto and got them signing they lives away for a lil bit of money?" tweeted Meek to his 8.7 million followers.

The Philadephia emcee continued, "We taking control of that 2020 and exposing the people offering these slave deals! Ima get some lawyers to break down some of these deals y’all offering these kids."

Besides running Dream Chasers, Meek is personally signed to Atlantic Records. He also came up in the industry under Rick Ross' Maybach Music Group imprint along with Wale and Gunplay.

That's 100% REAL SH..! Now, Brotha Meek Mill, all you have to do now is connect with the brothers & sisters who also are financially stable like Master P, Jim Jones, Jay Z, Rick Ross, Oprah, so the movement can be strengthened through our own people. 2020 is our Year. .

@Gmaxim317, you sound a little salty about your life. If someone has been taken advantage of and they’re trying to teach others not to take the same road I think he’s doing what’s needed to be done. He’s not sitting back saying I got a bad deal so I don’t care if someone else gets one, even if he has a bad deal!!

Meek is in a slave label contract as he speaks. All record labels are like that dipship. He is a walking contradiction. He thinks he's an activist. Stick to rapping and shut the fuck up. You wanted to be a part of the music industry, well this is how they roll deal with it little bitch. Go make some more garbage music get your check and shut the fuck up.
