Although he is doing his best to avoid bottles to the face, it seems Meek Mill is unable to dodge criticism from North Philly Open Air Church Pastor Jomo K. Johnson, who has our new favorite name this week. Johnson is also an author who has written such Kindle books as Deadest Rapper Alive: The Rise of Lil’ Wayne and the Fall of Urban Youth, and actual paper books like Call Tyrone: Why Black Women Should Remain Single Or…. As it turns out, Jomo doesn’t like that Mill, in his song “Amen,” thanks the Lord for, “good pussy.” Which, as not mature adults, gave us a good giggle. Jomo isn’t laughing.
In fact, on Jomo’s blog, he says that, “[Meek Mill] is following the same cowardice path of many popular Hip Hop artists by using disturbing analogies in their music in comparison with the Christian Church. None of these rappers choose to demean or castigate the religion of Islam, only because doing so would put their lives in physical danger.” Well, while this might be an actual thought in their heads, couldn’t it just be that most of these rappers are Christians, and therefore say these things about a church they know about? Or that the job of saying ridiculous things and then praising Allah has fallen square on the shoulders of Mike Tyson, and he seems to be doing fine with that.
But Jomo continued, “As a Hip Hop fan, I want to encourage every Rap Fan in Philadelphia who is a believer in Jesus Christ, to boycott Meek Mill until he acknowledges this blatant disrespect. And being resident of North Philadelphia and Pastor, I revoke Meek’s ‘hood pass’ until this happens. If he appears at the upcoming concert at Fairhill Park, we as a Church will be there to meet him.” Revoke his hood pass? Did he issue the pass in the first place? What’s the paperwork for this like? NOW HOW WILL HE EVER GET A BANK LOAN?
