Meek Mill has remained a vocal critic of Tekashi 6ix9ine's return to the spotlight, which kicked off last week with a new song and video.

Meek Mill wants to "set an example" with his ongoing criticism of 6ix9ine, who released his first post-prison single "Gooba" last week.

The latest word from Meek, which again doesn't mention 6ix9ine by name, arrived on Twitter late Sunday night:

We control the culture lol and ima set a example lol.

In a tweet that's since been deleted, Meek elaborated by comparing his continued efforts aimed at criminal justice reform to 6ix9ine's scrutinized legal history. “The internet got a witness in witness protection living in a town house that can’t even come outside saying check on me. I’m helping free people you putting family members behind bars… I gotta crush you for the culture you chump! How you sleep at night lol."

And in a tweet that remained live at the time of this writing, Meek mentioned Nipsey Hussle, noting that the late Grammy-winning artist and celebrated entrepreneur had been "killed by one of them." This, of course, is a reference to 6ix9ine having cooperated with prosecutors in a heavily publicized case that ultimately saw 6ix9ine being released early from federal custody to home confinement over COVID-19 risk concerns.

Nip got killed by one of them I feel a way at heart nobody can change that! Go tuck in!

Previously, ahead of 6ix9ine's heavily attended Instagram Live session promoting the "Gooba" drop, Meek—though he again didn't mention 6ix9ine by name—said he hoped "that rat" was planning an apology. He also mentioned Nipsey at the time, making a point similar to the one he touched on in his late Sunday tweets.

Meanwhile, thanks to a barrage of coverage, "Gooba" is nearing 100 million views on YouTube after mere days.
