This Week In SoulBounce: Meek Mill Is Free, Janelle Monáe Comes Out, Kelis Breaks Her Silence & More

Meek Mill Is A Free Man

After five months in prison, Philly rapper Meek Mill is finally out of the clink. The "Dreams & Nightmares" rapper was released on bail on Tuesday after being imprisoned for violating his probation. Upon his release, he released a statement expressing his gratitude for those that held him down, saying, “I’d like to thank God, my family, my friends, my attorneys, my team at Roc Nation including JAY-Z, Desiree Perez, my good friend Michael Rubin, my fans, The Pennsylvania Supreme Court, and all my public advocates for their love, support and encouragement during this difficult time.” The statement soon went from personal to political, as he made sure to bring attention to those in jails without the privileges afforded to him by his career. “Although I’m blessed to have the resources to fight this unjust situation, I understand that many people of color across the country don’t have that luxury and I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues,” he said. #MeekFreed
