In a tweet shared on Thursday, the Philly rapper publicly asked Musk if he can join in on the divisive buyout. “Elon musk let us invest in Twitter with you ‘big homie,’” he wrote. Meek has yet to get a response from Musk, but he has been busy on Twitter this week, as he addressed critics and got himself involved in a mild beef with the NFT community.
Twitter is still a publicly-traded company, so if Meek wants to get involved right now there’s still a chance. However, when Musk’s buyout offer was accepted by Twitter, he announced plans to take the company private.
“I invested in Twitter as I believe in its potential to be the platform for free speech around the globe, and I believe free speech is a societal imperative for a functioning democracy,” said Musk, who is Twitter's biggest shareholder. “However, since making my investment I now realize the company will neither thrive nor serve this societal imperative in its current form. Twitter needs to be transformed as a private company.”
Last month, Meek shared a series of tweets in which he called out the music industry’s obsession with first-week numbers. “Labels run that shit … and most of the numbers be fake,” wrote Meek, who has recently got into the world of NFTs and crypto. “They crashing the rap game out … That everybody drop on Friday bs … Wtf is that.”
