According to MTV, Meek Mill was given a stern warning in a Philadelphia court today about his lyrical content.
Meek, who was in Philly for a court status hearing related to a prior gun and drug charge, was given a warning about the following lyrics from his song "The Ride":
"The D.A. said she hate me but I don't understand/When I just rocked a show in front of 50,000 fans/I think that bitch racist, she probably in a clan."
The D.A. Meek referenced in the song, Noel Ann DeSantis, cautioned Meek about his lyrics saying:
"Everyone is entitled to free speech, but the defendant obviously has a personal issue with this prosecutor," she said outside of the courtroom. "Lobbing personal insults, it just tries to dissuade the prosecution or dissuade the judge from focusing on the defendants actual actions. He certainly tells his opinion, but when you're under supervision you have to respect the judge, the prosecutor, the police.
More from MTV:
The MMG rapper told Fox that he would refrain from referring to the DA in his music, but maintained that his lyrics came from an honest place. "DeSantis never says anything good about me," he told the judge in court. "I rap with my heart; it's how I feel. She's talking down to me every time. She's talking about me like I'm a criminal."
Meek, who flew in from Miami to attend the hearing, didn't seem too upset by DeSantis' scolding, adding, "I just make sure I give back to my community, show love and motivate the kids." The drug and gun charge previously landed him under house arrest and he is currently on parole. If it were determined that he was involved in the nightclub scuffle between Chris Brown and Drake's entourages, it would be a violation of his parole.
