Meek Mill brought Philly to this year's BET Awards when he hit the stage to perform.

DJ Khaled first appeared on stage on a white platform before the Philadelphia native appeared, along with rapper Lil Baby, and they began to perform their collaboration track, "Weather The Storm." Soon after, Jeremih hit the stage, and slowed things down a bit to perform their joint track "You Stay."

In addition to his awards show performance, the first trailer for his upcoming documentary "Free Meek" premiered during the show.

"Free Meek" is a five-episode series - executive produced by Jay-Z - that chronicles Meek's struggles with the unjust criminal justice system. The docu-series will explore Meek's original arrest and it'll also address the systemic corruption that sends so many young, black men like Meek to prison.

As you know, the Championships rapper was sentenced to two-to-four years in prison for violating his probation in late 2017. The 32-year-old rapper has been on probation since the age of 19, and that arrest wasn't his first time getting thrown behind bards for violating his probation.



After his story made headlines and he was released, Meek became the poster child for criminal justice reform. Since his release, he has been using his platform to speak out about the crooked criminal justice system and has teamed up with bigwigs like Jay-Z, Philadelphia 76ers owner Michael Rubin, CNN commentator Van Jones, and several billionaires to launch REFORM Alliance, a criminal justice reform organization chaired by himself and his homie Michael Rubin.

"Free Meek" premieres August 9th via Amazon Prime Video. Will you be watching?




It seems Meek had one too many last night and texted his mom and sister he was going to give them a million dollars. He reneged on the offer the next morning, but promised to lace them with something good:
