Amazon Prime has released the official trailer for its upcoming original docuseries Free Meek, which tells the story of Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill’s 2017 arrest for probation violations.
According to the official synopsis, the series, from executive producer Jay-Z, “chronicles Meek Mill’s transformation from chart-topping rapper to galvanizing face of criminal justice reform. As Meek, his family and his legal team fight for his freedom, cameras capture the birth of the #FREEMEEK movement and re-investigate a case filled with allegations of dirty cops and systemic corruption in a broken judicial system”.
“A young rapper trapped in an unjust system” an onscreen line reads at the beginning of the trailer, which gives viewers a glimpse into the investigation. “This is a story in which there is injustice in every crack and crevice.
This is filphadelphia,” “As soon as Meek was in prison, he became a symbol for criminal justice reform,” two of the men who talked about Meek say.
The song used in the trailer is Meek Mill’s 2018 single “Trauma,” from his fourth studio album, “Championships,” released in November 30, 2018, after he came out of prison.
Free Meek is set to premiere on Prime Video this summer, on August 9.
