AceShowbiz - Meek Mill may be serving in prison right now, but that doesn't stop him from releasing new videos. The rapper premiered a music video for "1942 Flows" on Monday, April 9. The track is included in his 2017 album "Wins and Losses".
Directed by Spike Jordan, the visuals starts off with Meek leaving a prison and confronting a horde of reporters. When asked about his feeling after getting out of jail, he answers, "I feel like a free slave, you know? I feel like I've been targeted by certain people."
"Just being out on the streets and knowing somebody can take your freedom at any time; you got cops, you see they charged me up on felonies," he continues. "They seen me riding a bike, that kind of says it all." He adds at one point, "My freedom on the line. Unfortunately, I made mistakes when I was younger. It's trailing me for the rest of my life."
The scene the changes to show footage from a November rally, where fans demanded that the rapper should be released from prison. There are also scenes which were shot before Meek was imprisoned, showing the rapper spitting his lines in various locations. The clip ends with an audio of a crowd chanting, "Free Meek Mill!"
Meek is currently serving two to four years in prison for violating his probation in a 2008 gun and drugs case. Last week, Judge Genece Brinkley denied Meek's bail request, but the Philadelphia District Attorney's office submitted a motion to the Supreme Court saying it was "unopposed" to releasing the rapper on bail.
Meek's lawyer, Joe Tacopina, was pleased with the attorney's decision. He said in a statement, "We are encouraged by the Philadelphia District Attorney's steadfast stance in not opposing Meek Mill's release on ball at the Pennsylvania Supreme Court level while the current legal proceedings continue, even in light of Judge Brinkley's vindictive and erroneous decision."
