Earlier this year, it wasn’t uncommon to hear the rap game come alive
with cries of “Free Meek!” After the Philadelphia rapper found his
freedom, he once again hit the ground running amidst a sea of renewed
support and appreciation.
Meek Mill has since become a symbol of the
justice system, and has been doing his part to bring awareness to the
occasionally flawed process. Now, he has taken to Instagram to throw his
support behind Young Thug, who recently found himself thrown in jail
after failing a drug test.
“#FREESLIME,” he writes, alongside a picture of Jeffery. “PUT EM ON
PROBATION LOCK EM UP IF HE AINT PERFECT!” It’s interesting to see Meek
on the other side, championing the “Free Thugger” movement, like so many
once did for him.
Despite the rap game’s occasionally combative nature,
at the end of the day, there is an underlying sense of mutual respect
beneath it all. Hopefully Thug can keep his head up until his legal woes
are sorted out. Free Thugger!
