A week after being released from jail, Meek Mill has inked a deal with Amazon for a new documentary series through JAY-Z‘s Roc Nation management company.
The six-part docu series is targeted to premiere in 2019. Philadelphia-based rapper Robert Rihmeek Williams was released from jail last month after serving nearly five months for a probation violation — for popping a wheelie in an Instagram video without wearing a helmet.
The docu series will chronicle Mill’s rise to fame and his 10-year battle with Philadelphia judge Genece Brinkley, as well as the larger issue of high incarceration rates for people of color. Roc Nation is producing the untitled project with the Intellectual Property Corp. and docu filmmaker Isaac Solotaroff.
In statement, Meek Mill said:
I’m grateful for this unique opportunity to share my story and I look forward to collaborating with Amazon Prime Video, Roc Nation and the Intellectual Property Corporation on this incredible series.
Not only will this documentary give viewers an unprecedented look at my life, but it will also allow me to use my public platform to highlight the need for criminal justice reform.
Meek has been moving non-stop since his release.
On Thursday, he joined Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf at a Criminal Justice Reform Rally.
Good for him.
