Meek Mill Announces Tour, Pens NYT Op-Ed on Prison Reform

Ahead of his new album Championships, Meek Mill has announced dates for a U.S. tour in 2019. The Motivation Tour will visit 16 cities, and will be Meek’s first string of solo live performances since his release from prison earlier this year.

Meek has also written an op-ed for today’s issue of The New York Times discussing his own experience with the criminal justice system. Underscoring the country’s need for prison reform, he writes: “A higher power has put me in a position to help fix this — to help clean up this persistent stain on our society.” Read the piece and watch a powerful accompanying video here.

Last week, Meek released two teaser tracks from his new album: “Uptown Vibes (feat. Fabolous & Anuel AA)” and “Oodle O’ Noodles Babies,” the latter of which he performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Championships arrives November 30.
