Cool Dad Job: Rapper, dissident
Latest Cool Dad Achievement: Otherside of America
As a rapper, Meek Mill knows how to use words. He has words for the police. He has words for the officers that beat him up and the officers that, over a series of years, picked him up for a series of parole violations, prioritizing the harassment of a community leader over anything remotely resembling the protection of Philadelphia. No surprise then that Mill released a searing track about police brutality as the George Floyd protests spread across the country. “The Otherside of America” is a hard listen because truth is a hard listen. But Mill is committed to his community and to shedding light on the brutality of those that would rather subjugate than serve.
