TeeRoy's 2 Cents:
- Is there anything better than being recognized by your own city at the highest level?
- Meek has made the people of Philly proud. He deserves it.
- Meek's proud of his city and his city is proud of him.
- How are we gonna celebrate?
- The weekend is now officially The Meekend.
- Crazy how things can change in just a year's time.
Earlier this year, the city of Houston, Texas declared a Meek Mill day in the Philly rapper’s honor, and now he he has a whole three-day weekend courtesy of his hometown. City Council President Darrell L. Clarke says Meek Mill Weekend kicks off tomorrow (Friday) and runs through Sunday. The timing of the hometown holiday coincides with when he’ll be in the city for his Motivation tour.
The City of Brotherly Love decided to honor Meek for the same reasons they did in H-town -- his contributions to music and art, and efforts in criminal justice reform.
