Meek Mill Pushes For Criminal Justice Reform...
American Rapper Meek Mill is now pushing for criminal justice reform after his own controversial legal troubles.
In his first live TV interview since being released from prison. Mill told "CBS This Morning" on Tuesday that he "doesn't care about being a face" of the movement for reform.
He said, "This happens to minorities on a daily basis where they don't have a voice, and I just came from – it's almost like cities…inside prisons where people have no contact with the world.
"Without the support of prominent names – including rapper Jay-Z, comedian Kevin Hart, Philadelphia 76ers owner Michael Rubin and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft – I would be in prison. I would be in prison."
"I'm just lucky to have people of power and much influence to stand behind me and speak up."
Pennsylvania's Supreme Court ordered Mill to be released from prison on bail two weeks ago.
