Meek Mill has expressed support for New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft after he committed $25 million to an initiative aimed to help fight discrimination.
The NFL owner announced on Monday (March 27) that he’s spearheading the “Stand Up To Jewish Hate” campaign, which would be launched through his Foundation to Combat Antisemitism.
The program aims to raise awareness about the skyrocketing incidents of antisemitism both online and in person around the country, and will include advertisements aired during The Voice, Kelly Clarkson Show and Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.
Meek expressed his support for Kraft and the initiative on Twitter, showering him in diamond emojis after reposting an article discussing the program. “Shout out to Robert,” he added in his tweet.
According to PEOPLE, the MMG rapper and former Patriots star Tom Brady will use their platforms to help promote the campaign.

Meek Mill and Robert Kraft previously collaborated with JAY-Z and Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin to develop their criminal justice reform organization, REFORM Alliance.
The Dreams and Nightmares rapper and Roc Nation boss even gifted Kraft a blue drop-top Bentley for his 80th birthday to thank him for all his hard work. The luxury vehicle came with a massive birthday card that read: “Happy 80th Birthday Robert Kraft.” The inside of the card read: “Except you look 40 and act 25.”
Kraft also previously visited Meek Mill in prison in 2018. “He’s an amazing young man,” Kraft told reporters at the time outside the State Correctional Institution-Chester.
“I know how I’d feel if I were in the situation he is. He’s very intelligent,” Kraft continued. “Makes it clear to me we have to do something with criminal justice reform.”
In other Meek Mill news, the rapper is hard at work on new music and recently previewed an unreleased track while reuniting with his MMG label boss Rick Ross in the studio.
“Getting money fuck the fame/ Ever since n-ggas called me I can’t trust the same/ You been in my back and put mud all in your brother name/ I’m gonna get you back because you know Cardo don’t play no fucking games/ All in the open with that .30 on me let it aim,” Meek can be heard rapping on the song.
Rozay hinted the track would arrive “very soon,” while Meek captioned his Instagram post by calling their in-studio reconciliation “perfect timing.”
