Meek Mill: Fans Protest Rapper's Prison Sentence in '1942 Flows' Video

Protesters hold up #FreeMeekMill posters and urge the Philadelphia court system to release the rapper from prison in the new video for “1942 Flows.” The song originally appeared on the rapper’s 2017 Wins & Losses album.

Since the release, Meek was sent to back jail for allegedly violating his probation. Rick Ross, Colin Kaepernick and Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin protested the new ruling. Jay-Z wrote a New York Times op-ed about Meek’s wrongful imprisonment. 

This new video for “1942 Flows” incorporates this struggle for Meek’s freedom with footage from a November rally. Fans hold #FreeMeekMill posters as well as signs that encourage Judge Genece Brinkley, who has repeatedly sent Mill to prison, to recuse herself from the case. The video ends with audio of the crowd chanting, “Free Meek Mill!”

Last month, the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office said it was “unopposed” to the idea of his release on bail. Pennsylvania governor Tom Wolf made a similar statement on Twitter. “Our criminal justice system is in need of repair,” he said.

Goo Goo Dolls Revisit 'Dizzy Up The Girl' on 20th Anniversary Tour

Goo Goo Dolls will mark the 20th anniversary of their multi-platinum album Dizzy Up the Girl on tour this fall. The band kicks off September 30th in Phoenix, Arizona and winds back around to end in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

During each show, the Goo Goo Dolls plan to perform one portion of the show devoted to Dizzy followed by a second with other requisite songs. The 1997 album was a commercial zenith for the alt-rock group. The album included two of the band’s biggest hits, “Iris” and “Slide.” The record sold over four million copies in the United States, according to the RIAA.

In an interview with Billboard last year, lead singer John Rzeznik said he never tired of playing hits like “Iris.” “It’s as new as the first day I played it,” he said. “I just find myself always grateful that song came into my life … It’s one of those things like getting hit by lightning: It doesn’t happen very often.”

The band’s most recent full-length, Boxes, came out in 2016. They released the You Should Be Happy EP last year.
