A$AP Ferg & Meek Mill team up for some "Trap And A Dream" visuals.
Meek Mill may be on the verge of beginning a lengthy prison sentence, but support for the Philadelphia rapper is looking stronger than ever before. With Jay-Z, T.I., and Rick Ross having all weighed in on Meek's recent arrest, A$AP Ferg decided to come through and release his new Still Strivin' video for "Trap And A Dream." The clip, which is directed by Guru Media Group, features none other than the recently incarcerated Meek. Apparently, this video was filmed in New York, back in August, which is roughly around the time Meek was popped for recklessly popping wheelies on his motorcycle. It's unfortunate timing, to say the least.
Still, the video is definitely a polished experience, with both Ferg and Meek pulling up in a foreign whip on 125th street, and jamming out with their legions of loyal fans. It's a pretty straightforward video, but an effective one nevertheless, as it manages to capture the essence of that New York spirit. However, it must be said that the closing sound of police sirens has taken on a far more ominous note, especially once the final shot lingers on Meek.
A$AP Ferg goes a long way in showing support for Meek, ending the video with a quote from Moliere - "the greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it." The proverb is followed by the hashtag #FreeMeek, which has no doubt been all over social media. As of now, the last update on Meek was that he had checked into Pennsylvania State Correctional Institution at Graterford in Montgomery County in order to begin his upcoming prison sentence. His lawyer has been desperately attempting to discredit the ruling judge, but so far, it has yet to yield any results. Here's hoping that Meek can get through this, and emerge even stronger than before.
