Meek Mill Misses Album Release Party After Being ‘Harassed’ by Police

Meek Mill

Meek Mill is living out his dreams and nightmares. While his debut album just dropped this week, the Maybach Music signee was also faced with the harsh reality of being a rapper in the spotlight when he was detained by cops on Wednesday night in Philadelphia.

The 25-year-old MC was scheduled to celebrate the release of his album at a party in Atlanta on Halloween, but his plans were deferred after a run-in with cops in his hometown.

“Cops cost me a lot of money tonight …..taking pics of me like I’ma fuckin joke….no charges just holding,” tweeted Meek along with a photo of himself in handcuffs. “Ni**a I ain’t get knocked they was just tryna hold me back!”

However, despite reports, he was not arrested or charged with anything. “I ain’t get locked up…definitely not in NYC with no gun! Cops just harassed and violated me last night in Philly just for being famous!” he wrote.

“The crazy part about is I really had a handcuff and Rolex on my wrist yesterday,” said Meek, whose album cover features images of a Rolex attached to a handcuff.

His album release party has subsequently been pushed back. “Atl I’m get another date for the album release party! They had me down all last night for nothing! Let u kno soon!”

On a more positive note, Meek’s MMG debut Dreams and Nightmares is expected to sell 165-180,000 copies in its first week, according to early predictions.

    @Valerie, They promoted the shit out of that album lol. That’s all I see on damn near every rapper and dj’s twitter, facebook, ect. He’s CONSTANTLY on social networks promoting it. He was just on tour, he’s on tour again with MMG, and hitting the clubs to promote. There’s banners on almost every hip hop or urban media site and a ton of articles in both. I don’t know what else they could have done. And while those numbers aren’t GREAT, they’re actually unfortunately decent compared to others for a rapper in 2012. Stealing music is just too easy in this day and age.

    @Valerie, 175-200K is weak? Perhaps you’re looking at a different game than I am. People are not selling records like that. Even the C list artists in the late 90′s early 00′s were pushing 200-400k in their first week. Now R&B acts can’t even get 100k first week and they were THE big sellers in that time (90′s and early 00′s). The only hip hop acts who are moving first week big numbers (400k and up) are the Kanye’s, Jay’s, Rick Ross (maybe) and a few select others. They’re monopolizing the game by having consistent releases and consistent hits. Then they’re being smart businessmen and having labels and allowing their artists to knock out the areas that they don’t take advantage of… But back to the original question, if it wasn’t so easy to get bootlegs (like it was in the 90′s and 00-04/05) this album probably would have gone platinum in the first week. Meek has definitely made noise for himself.

    I think this photo should be looked into. Is that cop really looking at a cell phone while detaining Meek Mill. Does Philly have Hip Hop Police now? I would sue them if I missed one cent if I was Meek Mill.
