Meek Mill is in the news for legal drama, rather than his music, again. The Philadelphia rapper is being sued for alleged involvement in a fatal shooting in Connecticut.
The incident occurred after a concert back in late December 2016 when two men were shot and killed outside of a Meek Mill concert at theOakdale Theater, which is near New Haven. At the time, Meek maintained that he was not involved in the shooting.
The two men killed were Travis Ward, 31, and Jaquan Graves, 20.
Per Page Six, Lawyers for Ward’s family as well as Nathan Mitchell, who was shot that night but survived his injuries, filed a lawsuit Tuesday (May 22) in Waterbury Superior Court. Meek Mill and the theater have been accused of negligence and misconduct for allegedly poor security.
According to the lawsuit, Meek’s lyrics are prone to “incite violence” with shootings at a couple of other his concerts being used for proof.
The amount in damages being sought have yet to be disclosed. Sounds like Meek is involved in this struggle because of the size of his bank account considering that security is on the venue, not the artist on stage.
As for inciting violence via his lyrics, we’re going to assume those who came to the show voluntarily weren’t trying to hear “All Eyes On You,” featuring Nicki Minaj, repeatedly.
