Just days before the release of his upcoming album Championships, due out on November 30, Meek Mill has penned an op-ed for the New York Times about criminal justice reform. He also just announced his “The Motivation Tour” slated for 2019, serving as his first tour since his release from prison earlier this year.

The Philly rapper’s piece about criminal justice reform for the New York Times was published on Monday. He wrote, “Like many who are currently incarcerated, I was the victim of a miscarriage of justice — carried out by an untruthful officer, as determined by the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office, and an unfair judge.” Read the special op-ed in its entirety here.

In regards to “The Motivation Tour,” it’s a 16-city trek that begins on February 19 at Miami’s Fillmore and concludes March 24 at Atlanta’s Roxy, while his hometown gig is slated for March 15 at Philadelphia’s Met.
