Meek Mill highlighted the current condition of Young Black America.
As the Philly-based rapper, Meek Mill prepares for his third album Win and Loses; he releases a thought-provoking single and music video that features established singer-songwriter The-Dream called “YBA,” which stands for Young Black America.
In the video, Meek shared his experience and wisdom with a young man surrounded by negative peer pressures and crime. He then speaks about a frequent topic of how young African-American men usually strive to become a ball player or a rapper, instead of setting realistic goals such as becoming an attorney.
Meek’s words had the young man thinking about his life and if the people around him actually care about his well-being. It seems as if Meek is playing the big brother role and wants black children living in troubled neighborhoods to find better ways to make it out the hood.
