Rapper Meek Mill is encouraging Americans to “strap up” with guns due to danger on the streets resulting from illegal immigration.

The 36-year-old Philadelphia native, whose real name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, ranted about migrants, drugs and a mental health crisis in a new social media post. The platinum-selling artist went to jail in 2009 on gun and drug charges, was paroled after five months and given a 10-year probation period. In 2017, he was sent back to prison temporarily for technical violations.

More Americans (28 percent) view immigration as the most important problem facing the nation than a month ago (20 percent), according to the Gallup poll released last week—the highest number in five years of polling. About 29.5 percent of Democrats describe it as a “critical” problem that requires action, the highest number of partisans since prior to 2018.

“Make sure you strap up in America it’s extremely dangerous on the streets!” Mill wrote on March 4 on X, formerly Twitter. “They have no control illegal immigrants everywhere… automatic guns flooded the inner city’s … fettynal [sic] poison in most drugs … opioids melting the brains of humans .. and algorithms mind control.”

Newsweek reached out via email to Mill for further comment.

Mill helped get fellow rapper 21 Savage released from an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center last year, according to Complex.

The British national, born She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was arrested by ICE in 2019 due to an expired visa. The arrest was reportedly linked to a conviction for felony drug charges against the rapper in Fulton County, Georgia, though the charge was apparently vacated prior to the 2019 arrest.

“They detained me ’cause they said I had felony conviction, but the felony conviction got dismissed,” 21 Savage told My Expert Opinion host Math Hoffa in June 2022. “And I called Meek while I was in jail and told Meek, ‘Bro, I just got locked up.’ [Meek] called Jay-Z, and Jay-Z put a lawyer on my case … [he] played a role in getting me out of there.”

Jay-Z later called the arrest and detention an “absolute travesty.”

Meek Mill was recently embroiled in allegations involving his personal life, becoming social media fodder for claims that he was sexually involved with fellow rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs.

It stems from claims filed as part of a lawsuit against Combs by former producer and videographer Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones, who purports that he was sexually harassed, drugged and threatened by Combs for over a year—as he lived with and traveled internationally with Diddy between September 2022 and November 2023.

The lawsuit includes redacted names, which has led some—including social media influencer Andrew Tate—to question whether Meek Mill is one of the redacted names due to the lawsuit mentioning “a Philadelphia rapper who dated Nicki Minaj.

“No man or watt would ever approach me about gay activity and the whole place don’t get flipped … woke up seeing this on every blog like they know I’m coming!” Mill wrote February 28 on social media.
