Meek Mill has just received his own holiday in the city of Houston.
He was awarded the proclamation last night during his final tour stop that just happened to be in Houston.

Mayor Sylvester Turner presented Meek with the proclamation backstage that declared February 24 “Meek Mill Day” in the city of Houston.
Sources say the honor was tied to Meek’s ongoing advocacy work. The 31-year-old rapper received a two to four-year prison sentence in 2017 for violating his probation. The sentence, which stemmed from a decades-old conviction, was widely criticized as unjust and heavy-handed and sparked nationwide protests. Since his release from prison last April, Meek has used his platform to promote criminal justice reform.
