The Philadelphia rapper says someone relayed misinformation to the currently incarcerated artist.

Bobby Shmurda recently gave an interview where he chimed in about the work Meek Mill has been doing in the criminal justice reform space.

During the interview, the currently incarcerated rapper expressed how while he has respect for Meek, he has no interest in joining him in his prison reform movement, explaining how he believes Meek is assisting law enforcement. The Philadelphia rapper has since weighed in on Shmurda's commentary in an effort to set the record straight.

Shmurda's initial comments expressed how Meek's path is not going to be similar to his once he is released from prison.

The Brooklyn rapper, who is currently serving a seven-year jail sentence for conspiracy to commit murder, drug trafficking and weapon possession, shared his opinions with Sirius XM host Swaggy Sie.

"I tell people all the time I respect what he's doing but I can't do it though, you understand?" he commented. "I can talk to the kids, but I'm ain't about to be sitting here protesting and politicking for no muthaf--kin' cops because them muthaf--kas don't care."

After Meek got wind of the rapper's comments, he decided to respond on Instagram to clarify what he is aiming to do with his platform in order to influence tangible change.

"Somebody gave Bobby the wrong information," Meek expressed. "Nothing I got going on has nothing to do with speaking up for the cops!"

During his conversation with SiriusXM from behind bars, Shmurda also noted that he is open to having a conversation with Meek about his new organization, Reform Alliance. Earlier this year, Meek launched the non-profit alongside JAY-Z and other major influencers with the goal to "dramatically reduce the number of people who are unjustly under the control of the criminal justice system."
