Meek Mill debuts ‘Stay Woke’ song at BET Awards
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Rapper Meek Mill has performed a new song, “Stay Woke”, on the BET Awards with a striking performance that touched on police violence against black youth and prison.
Mill, who was released from prison earlier this year, wore a hoodie with the image of rapper XXXTentacion, who was gunned down in Florida last week. The play-like performance showed a child being shot in the street and showed several people in prison jumpsuits behind bars.
Mill is free on bond while he appeals a two-year sentence for probation violation from an old conviction for drug and weapons charges. CC
