Meek Mill has proposed a compromise to tackle the chronic gun violence in his city of Philadelphia.

On Wednesday (March 20), the outspoken rapper and activist took to X to propose a generous agreement to use his recording income to fund gun safety efforts.

He expressed his intention to donate 10% of his music proceeds to reduce gun violence in Philadelphia through a public contract. I will start this movement! PIP [sic]. PHAT GEEZ.”

The idea was made in response to the terrible death of fellow Philadelphia rapper Phat Geez, who was killed outside his own home.

Earlier this week, Meek Mill paid tribute to Phat Geez on X (previously Twitter) and criticised the city’s high rates of violent crime.

The rapper Meek Mill Sorrowfully said  “Rip phat geez…Philly is a terrible place for black people to live…” You see too much death!!! Smh.”

“Phat Geez, actual name Derrick Gant, was discovered dead on March 17 after reports of a man with a pistol on North Tanney Street, where the rapper lived.”

Meek’s efforts to assist in stopping this to much death that have been going on in the city of Philadelphia did not actually end there, however.

Earlier in March, the MC promised to back Philadelphia Mayor Cherelle L. Parker following a mass shooting that injured eight youths.

According to NBC Philadelphia, three attackers opened fire on a bus on March 6 while high school students were waiting at the stop.
