Connecticut is the latest state government to recognize Meek Mill's efforts to reform the criminal justice system with an official holiday day, TMZ reports. From here on, March 19 will be known as "Meek Mill Day" in the state.

The date coincided with his performance at the XFINITY Theater in Hartford, Connecticut last night, which mirrors the "Meek Mill Day" honor he was given in Philadelphia before his performance at the Met Philadelphia on March 14.

Furthermore, March 15 to March 17 will be recognized as Meek Mill Weekend in the state of Pennsylvania.

City Council President Darrell Clarke announced Meek Mill Day alongside Meek during a press conference at Philadelphia's City Hall, while State Senator Sharif Street then dubbed the remainder of the weekend Meek Mill Weekend. The Philly rapper is being recognized for his artistic contributions and commitment to criminal justice reform.

Fans of Meek Mill can catch the inspirational hip-hop artist on tour in support of Championships, his first album since being released from prison.
