Rapper Meek Mill is ready to take on the criminal justice system.
Having just recently served time for violating probation — a sentence that caused an outrage among his fans and beyond — Meek is collaborating with Amazon Prime Video for a six-part documentary series that will follow his fight for exoneration while exposing flaws in the criminal justice system.
The untitled docuseries will put the spotlight on Meek’s life, career, and criminal justice odyssey while demonstrating the negative effects of long-tail probation on urban communities of color.
The series is expected to premiere in 2019 exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.
