Gunplay Reminds Us It’s Still #FreeMeekMill Until The Dreamchaser’s Release

Published

on

Maybach Music Group’s Gunplay is out here pulling for his labelmate’s release. The Florida native has reminded fans Meek Mill‘s still locked up behind bars.

Gunplay went to Instagram Wednesday (January 31) with a post about Meek’s situation.

Earlier in the week, reports claimed Judge Genece Brinkley may not have pressured Meek into dropping his Roc Nation management to join forces with alleged affiliate Charlie Mack.

It was Meek’s probation officer — not the judge — who was pushing during the in-chambers hearing for Meek to embrace Mack, arguing Mack was a good influence on Meek and was turning his life around … this according to the transcript. The probation officer said, “What I like about Charlie, he is not invested in Meek Mills. He is invested in Robert Williams [Meek’s real name].” Judge Brinkley did not advocate for Mack. To the contrary, she tried distancing herself, saying she was not going to get involved in terms of who should manage or advise him. The judge said, “I don’t want the record to suggest who your management is or is not.” (TMZ)

In a weekend interview, music mogul JAY-Z spoke up on defending Meek Mill amid his four-year-prison sentence.

“Meek is a beacon. He’s a vessel. The light goes through, he brings attention to this issue because this is not the first time this has happened. Unfortunately in America this happens to black and brown people way too often. When you’re on probation, you’re on this paper, you do a crime, you do whatever time you do. Then you’re on paper. He’s been on probation for 11 years. 11 years. So, it’s almost like you’re tethered to this thing and they’re just waiting for you to do something wrong because every time you do something wrong, [Meek Mill] popped a wheelie. He was shooting a video and he popped a wheelie in the street which is a minor offense and it’s like, your kid goes to a skateboard park and skates where he wasn’t supposed to and someone gives him two years in prison. Again, Meek comes from a tough neighborhood so he’s been through his trials and tribulations we’re not sitting here professing he’s some angel but in this particular incident, the whole system has to be reworked.” (CNN)

A few days ago, Meek issued a statement about his Philadelphia Eagles making it to Super Bowl LII.

Brand new images of hand stitched and curated denim by manier  brand’s very own Maximillian Manier have surfaced!

Being the innovator of the renound- “self titled-seasonal wear” alone has mapped out a sure fire and trail blazing route to atop any list of up and coming designers.

His designs include reworked masterpieces which mainly consist of Levi’s Brand denim, although there has been verifiable accounts (as well as the D.S.D exclusive pictures we’ve featured below!) of Maximillian working on mock ups with what some have identified as Embellish Denim. Which may have surfaced on either’s social media accounts (links below).

Maybe it’s the ever-changing names, or maybe it’s the superior hand craftsmanship that will forever be synonymous with either brands. One thing is for certain is that regardless of the times or collab at hand, Manier is a force to recognize and reckon with. I’d keep a close look out for a chance to snag any limited production pieces for the up and coming 2020’s!
