Meek Mill was pulled over by cops in Jamaica. Fortunately, his experience with the police in Jamrock was very different from his experience in The States.
The cops in Jamaica just wanted a Meek Mill photo op. In a video, the “Championships” rapper can be heard using a fake Jamaican accent while conversing with the police.
“Ya trying to take a picture mon? I’m f**ked up. Y’all pulled us over? And y’all said y’all want a picture mon? Ya’ll scared us. We scared of the police,” he said.
“Y’all gone pull us over. We thought we were getting locked up… Y’all gone give us a police escort out of Kingston? Just give us a police escort out of Kingston. Y’all pulled us over and we thought we were getting in trouble.”
People can be heard in the background laughing, which was probably a laugh of relief because the Philadelphia rapper has had several run-ins with the law. In 2017, he was sentenced to two to four years in prison for violating his probation. The rapper caught two cases. One was an assault case at a St. Louis airport, and the other was for reckless driving (popping wheelies on bikes) in the Washington Heights neighborhood of New York City. Meek Mill was able to make a deal for the NYC case, and had the assault case dropped, however, the judge still sentenced the rapper to a minimum of two years in jail for violating the probation sentence that he obtained for a 2009 drugs and weapons case.
