Meek Mill Reportedly Scheduled To Visit Donald Trump's White House

Should the entertainer meet with the President?

(AllHipHop News) Since his release from prison, Robert "Meek Mill" Williams has been discussing the need to examine the current criminal justice system. According to a report, the Philadelphia-raised rapper is making a visit to Washington, DC on Friday.

Meek is supposedly making a stop by The White House to talk about prison reform. It's not clear if he's planning to sit down with Donald Trump or someone else in the Administration.

Other African-American celebrities - such as Kanye West, Chrisette Michele, and Steve Harvey - faced criticism for associating with Trump. The POTUS has been accused of supporting racism and sympathizing with white supremacists.

UPDATE:

TMZ reports that Jay-Z convinced Meek to back out of the proposed Prison Reform Summit hosted by Donald Trump. Other high-profile African-Americans supposedly voiced concern too.

"I was originally scheduled to be part of a panel on Prison Reform at the White House to help shed light on the issues within the system. Unfortunately, the focus turned to the President and Myself which concerned me that it might take away from creating a positive result from today’s discussions," Meek is quoted saying. "As a result, I decided not to attend so that the focus would be solely on fixing our prison system. Most importantly I remain fully committed to improving our criminal justice system."

UPDATE:

Meek Mill's publicist denies reports claiming Jay-Z convinced the rapper from attending the summit.
