Rapper Meek Mill lashed out at a Philly pastor who called for a boycott of his song “Amen”. During his rant, the Maybach Music rapper revealed his own thoughts on God and why he feels justified in what he has done to help his community. 

Meek Mill called in Hot 107.9 Philly with Q Deezy to address Pastor Jomo K. Johnson of Philly, who accused him of blasphemy for his song “Amen” from his Dreamchasers 2 mixtape. Here’s a glimpse of the hook for those of you aren’t that familiar:

Now there’s a lot of bad bitches in the Explainbuilding (Amen)
A couple real niggas in the building (Amen)
I’m finna kill niggas in the building (Amen)
I tell the waiter fifty bottles and she tell me say when
And I say church (Preach)
We make it light up like a church (Preach)
She wanna fuck and I say church (Preach)
Do Liv on Sunday like a church (Preach)

Pastor Johnson, of Philadelphia’s Open Air Church in Philadelphia, asked for a boycott of the song:

“All behavior starts with a belief.  As young men and women are indoctrinated with this music, this belief, especially him [Meek] being from North Philadelphia, they’re going to follow what he does. I see it firsthand. I go door-to-door in North Philadelphia, I state it again, he left North Philadelphia I still live there.”  He added, “As a Hip-Hop fan, I decided to check it out [‘Amen’] and listen to the lyrics.  I was just completely shocked that Meek Mill, knowing that Philadelphia is a highly religious community, he would choose to make a song thanking the good Lord, for things that are completely contrary to the holiness of God.”

According to Meek, Pastor Jomo has alternative motives:

“The way I’m looking at it is, you want to be famous. You want some money, or you’re trying to get your church some money,  If you want that, you could have came to me and said that, or we could have had a talk about this. I’m out here feeding my family. For you to be talking about you trying to ban me? I done took 20, 30 drug dealers off the street. I’m out here passing out them coats to them kids, where was you at?”

Meek says he was raised in the church and retorted that he doesn’t even really believe in God.  “I don’t want to hear nothing you’re talking about on that tip, I’m talking about reality.”

The Pastor reiterated in the interview that Meek said he doesn’t believe in God, so it explains why he would do the song – and Meek didn’t refute it.
