Jay-Z has some more thoughts on Meek Mill’s harsh prison sentence.
After speaking out against the sentence on Facebook earlier this week, Jay addressed the crowd during his concert in Dallas on Tuesday night.
“He caught a charge when he was, like, 19,” Jay told the crowd. “He’s 30 now. He’s been on probation for 11 years. F—ing 11 years. Judge gave him two to four years because he got arrested for being on a bike and popping a f*cking wheelie.”
“This 4:44 album is all about us moving forward, moving past it,” he continued. “In order for us to move past the shit we going through, we have to address it. Everyone has to be just as outraged, [we] can’t look at it as a black and white issue, we have to look at it as a human issue.”
“Black people in particular, we have to get our shit together. We not second class to anybody, we’re equal to everybody. We deserved everything that everybody else gets — stop selling yourself short.”
