Meek Mill Gets The Key To The Entire State Of Connecticut

The rap star's prison reform work is gaining Meek some positive press.

(AllHipHop News) Meek Mill was presented with the key to the state of Connecticut on Tuesday night during a show in Hartford.

Politician Brandon McGee joined the rapper onstage to present him with the honor and a state-level proclamation, declaring March, 19, 2019 as Meek Mill Day to mark the hitmaker's great strides for criminal justice reform.

The hip-hop star has become one of the leading voices for the cause after he was locked up in 2017 on a parole violation dating back a decade.

Meek's efforts are landing him city honors and special days all over the U.S., but this is the first time he has been saluted by a state.

Tuesday's honor comes just after Connecticut politicians passed new prison reform legislation to restore voting privileges to convicted felons who are on parole.

Meek's charity, REFORM Alliance, co-sponsored the new bill.
