Meek Mill was warned at his recent status hearing to not mention the D.A. in his lyrics, as he had previously done in "The Ride."
Meek Mill visited his hometown of Philly this week for a court status hearing regarding his previous gun and drug charges.
On "The Ride" Meek spits about D.A. Noel Ann DeSantis, "The D.A. said she hate me but I don't understand/When I just rocked a show in front of 50,000 fans/I think that bitch racist, she probably in a clan."
The lyrics did not go unnoticed, and reports say that Meek was asked to use caution in his lyrics referencing the court proceedings. "Everyone is entitled to free speech, but the defendant obviously has a personal issue with this prosecutor," DeSantis said outside of the courtroom. "Lobbing personal insults, it just tries to dissuade the prosecution or dissuade the judge from focusing on the defendants actual actions. He certainly tells his opinion, but when you're under supervision you have to respect the judge, the prosecutor, the police."
Meek says he'll stop referencing DeSantis in his music, "DeSantis never says anything good about me," the MMG rapper told the judge. "I rap with my heart; it's how I feel. She's talking down to me every time. She's talking about me like I'm a criminal." He added, "I just make sure I give back to my community, show love and motivate the kids."
Although Meek was hoping that he wouldn't have to come back for a status hearing for another six months, the judge ordered a return in two months.
