Like many, Meek Mill responded to the shootings of Benny the Butcher and Boosie Badazz, who were both shot in Texas over the weekend.
Meek wished both men well, then addressed the violence in his hometown of Philadelphia. The DreamChaser said he'd get record deals for the unsigned rappers in Philly since he feels his town has plenty of talent.
I’ll get all the main big artist in philly a deal if they put them bodies behind them and squash them beefs ...I hear about ....got some hot young bulls from my city but they all beefing!— Meek Mill (@MeekMill) November 16, 2020
And that’s just a idea but I’ll push thru with my city if y’all make it thing! It’s like 5 clicks that’s talented but they deep in! And get they most attention when they beefing!— Meek Mill (@MeekMill) November 16, 2020
And when I say bodies I mean friends or family you lost!— Meek Mill (@MeekMill) November 16, 2020
His offer didn't go over well with local rapper Poundside Pop, who jumped on social and seemed to warn Meek about coming to the city's northside, which is where Meek grew up, while referencing another Tweet Meek made about picking sides.
