Meek Mill is not worried about being banned from his hometown of Philadelphia.
Following the recent killings of King Von and Mo3, the “Dreams and Nightmares” emcee offered to give record deals to local artists in Philly under one condition — they have to put their beefs behind them.
“I’ll get all the main big artists in Philly a deal if they put them bodies behind them and squash them beefs…I hear about,” he tweeted. “Got some hot young bulls from my city, but they all beefing! And that’s just an idea, but I’ll push thru with my city if y’all make it thing! It’s like 5 clicks that’s talented, but they deep in! And get they most attention when they beefing!”
His offer did not go over well with the local rappers in Philly. Rapper Poundside Pop told Meek to choose his alliance and he questioned him about where he was really from. “Pretty soon everybody gone have to pick a side,” he wrote. “Too much real shit going on to be cool wit everybody!”
Ultimately, Poundside Pop and his friends said the Championships emcee was banned from North Philly. “Oh my God. This some opp-loving shit,” he said in an Instagram Live video. “You is from 63rd, bro. What is wrong with this bro? You crazy, bro. What’s wrong with you? What’s going on with your head, bro? Is you goofy?” One of his friends added, “You not from North, bro. You’re banned.”
On Monday afternoon (Nov. 16), Meek responded to the “ban” on Twitter. “We run the hood the fuck is you saying lol,” he tweeted. He then said that he was going to deactivate his account until Friday (Nov. 20) — which is when he plans on dropping new music.
