Meek Mill pens a couple of heartfelt bars inspired by the legal woes of Kevin Gates and Kodak Black.
Much of the rap game is currently feeling for Kodak Black and Kevin Gates, who both got hit with guilty verdicts last week. The artists who have been incarcerated, and those who have seen their past lives jeopardize their legal music careers, have been especially supportive of both Southern rappers. Their misfortune has inspired some powerful new raps from Meek Mill, who knows the perils of the system all to well.
The Philly Dreamchaser shared the inspiring lyrics on Instagram:
"Look what they did to Lil Kodak and Gates, I can't lose faith / I just wanna shine like the stars in my Wraith"
It's unknown if Meek has drafted the rest of the verse, but those lyrics definitely belong on a track.
Gates was given 30 months in an Illinois prison for an outstanding weapons charge, just as he had finished up his sentence for the battery charge that sent him to jail in October. Kodak, who's been in prison since February, was found guilty of violating his parole. He is set to return to court on May 4, when prosecutors will seek to sentence him to up to six years in prison.
