Philadelphia has supported Meek Mill since he delivered his first mixtape, four years ago. These early fans of Meek Mill have watched him blossom, signing with Grand Hustle, leaving T.I.’s camp and eventually joining Rick Ross’ Maybach Music, gaining stardom. Upon signing with MMG, the young Philadelphia rapper made the hip hop scene in Philadelphia relevant again.
Everyone from the veterans and the newcomers in Philadelphia have praised Meek Mill for putting the spotlight back on the City of Brotherly Love. Meanwhile, Meek Mill has continued to deliver hits, becoming arguably Maybach Music’s biggest star outside of Rick Ross. Before the release of his album, now a month away, Meek Mill released his mixtape, Dreamchasers 2.
Among the popular songs off the mixtape was “Amen.” The song did so well on many hip hop websites and gained radio play. Because of this, Meek Mill decided to use “Amen” as the first single from his album, Dreams & Nightmares. Praise for the single has been widespread from nearly everyone in Philadelphia, with the exception of pastor, Jomo K. Johnson, who has called the song blasphemy.
The two have been going back and forth for some time, but Philadelphia’s Hot 107.9 was able to get both to sit down and discuss their issues. Quickly, the conversation turned confrontational and an argument between Meek Mill and Jomo K. Johnson.
