Meek Mill and Pastor Jomo K. Johnson are not going to be good friends anytime soon. The latter is organizing a boycott of the Philly rappers hit “Amen” single, citing it as blasphemous. Both parties called into their local radio station Hot 107.9 at the same
damn time to discuss their issues with each other, but things quickly spiralled into a lot of yelling.
“The way I’m looking at it, you want to be famous, or you want some money or you trying to get your church some money,” Meek Mill told Johnson. “If you want that you could have came to me and said that or we could have had a talk about this. I’m out here feeding my family. For you to be talking about you trying to ban me—I done took 20, 30 drug dealers off the street. I’m out there passing them coats out to them kids. Where was you at?”
From here, the convo got very heated when Johnson mentioned that he “spent 25 stacks moving back into the hood” while Mill was in Miami making music.
“If you disrespect Jesus Christ and you disrespect the church, what do you think I’m going to do as a believer,” snuck in Johnson while Meek ran down things he’s done for the community like giving out Reebok sneakers to the kids. “Listen you may be meek, but I’m not. If you disrespect our God, then we have a right to proclaim that.”
How focused is Johnson on getting his point across? He’s selling a $2.99 e-book titled No Amen: Why Boycotting Meek Mill Will Help Save Hip Hop.
