Meek Mill just released his debut album Dream and Nightmares. But the way the young rapper tells it, his life could’ve gone in a completely different direction. “I was 18, just turned [into] an adult when I went to jail,” he said, explaining the event that completely changed his life in MTV’s “This is How I Made It“. “I caught a case and had 57 charges. Young guys that get caught with a gun — they’re gonna automatically charge you up. All I did was walk outside with a gun.” Meek’s time in jail made it clear to the Philadelphia emcee: he needed to change his direction in life. “In jail you ain’t got nothing to do but sit in there and think all day.”
Do you think going to jail is a life changing event?
