Earlier this week, Philadelphia Reverend Jomo K. Johnson spoke out against hometown rapper Meek Mill and his song "Amen" in the Philadelphia Daily News, saying, "As a hip-hop fan, I want to encourage every rap fan in Philadelphia who is a believer in Jesus Christ, to boycott Meek Mill until he acknowledges this blatant disrespect. And being resident of North Philadelphia and pastor, I revoke Meek’s ‘hood pass’ until this happens.” This statement was obviously of concern to Meek, who spoke on air with Johnson this morning on Hot 107.9's The Q Deezy Show in an attempt to discuss the situation.
Meek started by saying, “This looking like you trying to get famous, or you need some attention, because you could have came to me and said anything you wanted to say. I might've helped you. If you needed money for your church, I might've would've gave you that money. I might've even remixed the song with Kirk Franklin. Anything you wanted to do. You went about it like you looking for attention and fame.” Johnson responded, saying, “I recognize that you are a talented artist, but you are using your gifts for a wrong purpose.” Listen to the full audio below. It doesn't end well, as Johnson accuses Meek of being a liar, and Meek says Johnson sounds like "a psycho."
