Meek Mill was released from prison just days ago, and he’s already given his first interview as a free man. Here, we in turn showcase a preview of his sit-down with Lester Holt of Dateline NBC.

Accounting for Meek’s second conversation with Holt, as the two spoke over the phone just weeks ago, they discuss the Philly rapper’s time while incarcerated, his release, and plans for the future.

“I haven’t slept one minute since I’ve been out of prison,” Meek told Holt. “It’s actually like a culture shock coming from a small cell back into the real world, so I think my body has to adjust at this point.”

Holt then questioned if Meek felt free, to which he replied, “I don’t feel free. I ain’t feel free since I caught this case at the age of 19. I’m 30 now.”

For a preview of the conversation between Meek Mill and Lester Holt, see below. The full interview will air in a special on NBC.

Now, here’s how JAY-Z, Kevin Hart, and more reacted to Meek’s prison release.

Not NYC, not LA.
