Meek Mill says he tried to talk Kanye West out of visiting White House

The rapper claimed he talked to West about it "for hours"

Meek Mill tried to talk Kanye West out of visiting the White House, the rapper has claimed in a new interview.

West met with Donald Trump in Washington D.C. last month (October 13), saying the meeting was about criminal justice reform.

Speaking to Vulture, Mill, who was released from prison in April, discussed turning down an invite from Donald Trump to visit the White House himself. “I already knew that he don’t give a fuck about me or my kind,” he said. “It was too much of a game, and I wasn’t trying to be used like a pawn.”


Speaking about West’s own visit, the rapper said: “It was a mockery, really. I don’t think he addressed anything that had to do with what was tough on justice reform. He wasn’t prepared for it, and he shouldn’t have done it.”

He added that he had tried to talk the ‘Ye’ star out of going to the presidential residence in “hours’ of phone calls. “He was trying to get me to go to things like that,” Mill said, explaining that he also spoke to Kim Kardashian West about the matter. “She knew a lot more information than I thought she would know,” he said, but added: “I just couldn’t reason with them.”

Last week, Mill shared two new tracks – ‘Oodles O’ Noodles Babies’ and ‘Uptown Vibes’ – both of which are set to appear on his new album. ‘Championships’ will be released on Friday (November 30) and will be the rapper’s first album since 2017’s ‘Wins & Losses’.

Meanwhile, in September, the star officially ended his beef with Drake when the pair embraced each other on stage during the latter’s ‘Aubrey & The Three Migos’ tour. The two rappers made headlines when they became involved in a feud in 2015 and 2016 after Mill accused Drake of using a ghostwriter.
