After Meek Mill was prevented from entering the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas over the Memorial Day weekend, 50 Cent, Swae Lee and Yo Gotti have declared their support for the Philly rapper.

Mill is accusing the Cosmopolitan of racism after he was barred from entering the building to attend a DJ Mustard concert on Saturday. Meek’s attorney, Joe Tacopino, plans to sue the hotel for “heavy monetary damages” for allegedly “lying and humiliating Meek.”
Gotti says he’s also faced racism in Sin City. “I’ve experienced similar discrimination at the Cosmopolitan and other Vegas hotels,” the Memphis rapper tells HipHopDX. “It’s a disgrace that these establishments continue to judge us by the color of our skin and our professions instead of recognizing our artistry and dedication to our communities.”
“I stand with Meek Mill and all my peers in the Hip Hop community that have been disrespected by places like the Cosmopolitan,” Gotti declares.
Swae says he knows first-hand what Mill experienced because he was also mistreated at the Cosmopolitan.
“I feel him 100 percent. I was just there and they’re really aggressive for no reason,” the Rae Sremmurd member tells TMZ.
Swae offered a message for the Cosmopolitan and other establishments that allegedly discriminate.
“You could learn something from somebody that’s different from you. It don’t matter if they’re black, white, Hispanic, Indian,” he says. “Don’t cancel people out just because they got a different skin color, a different background. You might could learn something from that person. You might be inspired by that person.”
