After the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl for the very first time on Sunday (Feb. 4), Meek Mill issued a statement about the team's victory.
As we already know, Meek is serving 2-4 years behind bars for probation violation. But, the Eagles have shown their support for the Philly artist, since day one of his current incarceration. When the NFL team ran out onto the field at Super Bowl LII, they did so to Meek's “Dreams and Nightmares (Intro).” The team's defensive end Brandon Graham told NFL.com about this, "If you're going to go with a Philly song, that's the one you're going with."
After the Eagles became Super Bowl champs, everyone rooting for the team also began chanting, "Free Meek Mill." The rapper was another winner of the night!
NBC's John Clark later revealed that Meek gave him a statement about the Eagles' win, which Clark put on his Instagram. “Last night, I felt especially proud to be from the great city of Philadelphia," the rapper said. "All the heart that the Eagles showed in winning the Super Bowl has given the best fans in the world real hope and inspiration and I’m truly humbled. I wish my current situation was different, and that I could be with my brothers on that team, and the other Eagles fans, in celebrating this once-in-a-lifetime experience. But I have faith that truth and justice will win out in the end." See that post below.
