“Wassup with all these different race men got all these young black kids in slave contracts in the music business?”, Mill tweets. “It’s literally stealing now we found something we can get rich off!”
Meek recently inked a deal with Roc Nation to help launch his Dream Chasers record label. As time has progressed for Mill, he has emerged as a leader in the industry. It can even be said that he has become an inspiration for kids who came from similar circumstances.
The industry is saturated with record executives who don’t look like the artists they represent. It’s unclear as to whether Meek was simply recruiting for his label however, he does draw attention to a brighter tomorrow for the industry.
I’ll keep my opinions out of this to make room for yours. How do you feel about Meek’s comments? Do you agree with him?
