Meek Mill was scheduled to visit the White House to participate in a Prison Reform Summit, with other participants who are members of Congress, various activists and, people who have become victims of the system like the rapper.

However, he changed his mind considering the repercussions. Just like when Kanye West and Steve Harvey went to pay the POTUS a visit, it turned into a media circus, and will be problematic for Meek’s image and cause.

I was originally scheduled to be part of a panel on Prison Reform at the White House to help shed light on the issues within the system. Unfortunately, the focus turned to the President and Myself which concerned me that it might take away from creating a positive result from today’s discussions. As a result, I decided not to attend so that the focus would be solely on fixing our prison system. Most importantIy I remain fully committed to improving our criminal justice system, he said.

Good move!
