Meek Mill has caught some flack recently for his song "Amen." The track, which also features Drake has been criticized as being blasphemous by pastor Jomo. K. Johnson and others for some of it's lyrics. During an appearance on 106 & ParkMonday, July 16th Meek said he never intended for the song to be offensive to anyone.
"I don't think no preacher or no church approve of any type of rap music because rap music period there's a lot of bad stuff that's being said, but at the end of the day it's real life," Meek said. "And me I wasn't trying to disrespect no religion or anything like that. My whole family is Christian. I have a half Christian, half Muslim family. The situation, the song, that's what energy it felt and if anybody feel disrespected, I ain't do it in that way."
Meek said when he heard the song it gave him a certain feeling and he went with that feeling while writing it.
"I did [the song] because it was a good feeling," he continued. "Like when you hear the beat it's got the church organs in it. That's the feeling it gave me, so I said Amen or church. I didn't do it with bad intentions at the end of the day.”
