It seems like Meek Mill is the hot target for discrimination. So much so that he was denied access to a resort out in Las Vegas.
The Philly native has been dealing with injustice for well over a decade. Despite all of the positive things the rapper has done for communities, he’s still seen as a fugitive in the court of law. After several rallies, and appeals from his legal team, Meek was finally released from jail. Many still view his original sentence as one that was a harsh one.
Meek has helped to form a committee that will address justice reform in a major way. He along with Jay-Z and Robert Kraft look to make the world aware of the injustice taking place in everyone’s back year. Now beyond the courtroom, Meek has yet again faced adversity in the expense of his comfort.

This happens to a lot of black entertainers not just me either!! I felt crazy being put out by these white men for no reason!
Recently the Dreamchasers rapper was denied access to the Las Vegas Cosmopolitan Hotel. Furthermore, the situation escalated quickly as the staff threatened to arrest the artist if he stepped on the property. Shortly after Meek took to Instagram to record the live verbal altercation.
Meek Mill’s lawyer has released a statement addressing the cruel treatment he received at the Cosmopolitan Resort:
“we have learned that the Cosmopolitan maintains a list of African American recording artists who should be denied access for no other reason than than their culture and skin color. Such course of conduct constitutes discrimination per se, in violation of state and federal law, and exposes you to significant monetary damages.”
“we urge you to promptly issue an apology to Mr. Williams and grant him immediate access. In the event you fail to heed this one and only warning, we intend to pursue all legal recourse against you.”
In conclusion, will Meek Mill Las Vegas adventures officially come to an end? Will the issue get resolved? Leave your comments below, and stay tuned to Hypefresh.co.
