LISTEN: Meek Mill and Philly Pastor Go at It Over ‘Amen’

Rapper Meek MillOhhhhhhkay, okay, okay, okay, okay….this one here just took me clean out of here, for real.

Philly pastor, Rev. Jomo K. Johnson of Open Air Church, decided to take to the airwaves via Hot 107.9 to share his thoughts on the song ‘Amen’ by song artist/group called Meek Mill and Drake…never heard of Meek Mill, but…whatever…

The first few seconds of the clip appeared to be calm, but…I’ll let you listen for yourself. Let me know what you think.

Meek says he doesn’t believe in God. If a person says this, should we as Christ followers continue in conversation?

What are your thoughts, in general, regarding taking to the airwaves to discuss our differences in this manner? Should the Pastor be applauded for standing up for what he believes in?

Clearly, Christ followers will be uncomfortable with the content of the song, but you can take a listen for yourself below.

Here is the description that was posted on Youtube for this video:

Yesterday Meek Mill covered the Philadelphia Daily News, dubbing him “Bad Rap” because of his new single “Amen” featuring Drake and the backlash it has been getting from religious organizations. Today Meek Mill called into Philadelphia radio station Hot 107.9 and argued with Philly Pastor Jomo K. Johnson about the song. Jomo K. Johnson will soon publish a book about Meek Mill and MMG accusing them of blasphemy. Listen to Meek Mill and Philly pastor Jomo K. Johnson’s argument after the break.

Now take a look at the video for AMEN…I gotta warn you, it is quite vulgar. I have posted the lyrics below…this is ridiculous…it made me sick to my stomach.

[Meek Mill]
I just wanna thank God
For all the pretty women he let into my life
All the Benjamins you let me count
Wealth and health
For my family
And lettin’ me ball on these n****s

[Hook: Meek Mill]
Now there’s a lot of bad b*****s in the building (Amen)
A couple real n****s in the building (Amen)
I’m finna kill n****s in the building (Amen)
I tell the waiter fifty bottles and she tell me say when
And I say church (Preach)
We make it light up like a church (Preach)
She wanna **** and I say church (Preach)
Do Liv on Sunday like a church (Preach)

[Verse 1: Meek Mill]
Bottle after bottle, drink until I overdose
Pull up in the Phantom watch them ****** catch the Holy Ghost
Errtime I step up in the dealer I be goin’ broke
Shorty wanna **** me I say get on top and roller coast
And I lay back, she go cray, **** me good, but she no stay
Murder on that ***** let her boyfriend get that DOA
Get it? And all I get is Frito Lay
Plus I’m on probation, when they test me I just pee Rozay
Cause last night, I went hard, Peach Ciroc, Patron and all
Thirty racks on magnum bottles, I think I was born to ball
Lookin’ like a million plus, fresh I’m out that corner store
Hater I be doin’ me, you guys should be doin’ y’all
I’m stackin’ money to the ceiling
All this ice that’s in my Rollie I be chillin’
And I just made a couple million
So I could take care of them children, let’s go

[Hook]

[Verse 2: Drake]
Just bought my n****s some cane, so much it came with a plane
Bought my n****s some dope, so much it came with a boat
I just bought me a crib so big it came with a moat
For niggas jumping the fence I hope you n****s can float
And I just hope that I’m forgiven for carin’ ’bout how they livin’
And loanin a little money and keepin’ ’em out of prison
I ain’t lyin’ in my verses I’m just telling you the basics
Of growin’ up with your friends and becoming the one that made it, yes lord!
All gold, man I got these ****** sold
Talkin’ bout these other rappers getting old is even getting old
Worrying about your followers, you need to get your dollars up
Me and Meek, young n****s poppin’ like our collars up
And good ain’t good enough, and your hood ain’t hood enough
Spent my whole life putting on, you spend your whole life putting up
Ain’t no telling when I go, so there ain’t **** that I’mma wait for
I’m the type to say a prayer, then go get what I just prayed for

[Hook]

[Verse 3: Meek Mill and Jeremih]
Lord forgive me for my sins, I’m just tryna win and ****
Devil in a dress but if she knock I let her in
And if she knock I let her in
I have her wet by 12 o’ clock, then 3 o’ clock she wet again
I’m screaming Oh Lord, that ***** good, that ***** good
I’m tryna hold on, I wish I could, you think I should
She got that million dollar body, shorty my Bugatti
And she said she got a man, we keep it secret illuminati
(Got Patron on deck) And Ciroc all in my bottle
(Push it all on her) She was on that Reposado
(She take it all off) And I think I’ll rep Serato
In this ***** I’m spending like I hit the lotto cause it’s a lot of…

  1. I guess my question would be, “Why are we as believers so easily offended by stuff like this?” I’m not saying I support the song or its message BUT I don’t get the point of this so-called whistle blowing some of us get caught up in. The time spent trying to get this man’s song banned could have been spent out in the streets trying to reach the lost. I just believe that the best way to stand up for what you believe in is to walk it out. You can say a lot about a subject without saying anything at all. Conversations like the one in the recording really are often a huge waste of time and energy…. At least, that’s how I view it.

  2. Jesus is Lord:

    I think that its very necessary to address songs like this on platforms like this one. Why? Simple. Media, music, rappers, images, movies, celebrities, and television possess a very strong ability to influence the minds of our youth. Not just our youth, but everyone who lends a listening ear to it. It’s important that this young Minister came out to talk to Mr. Mill. After listening to the conversation, it doesn’t sound like he’s trying to get the song banned at all. Anyone who thinks is okay to make a song talk about the Holy Spirit, while promoting promiscuous sex, dangerous drugs and alcohol is clearly lost. Believers, let us not forget the great commission: To spread the Gospel to all the world. Meek Mill is truly a lost soul. If someone can talk to the rappers and make them help them to see error of their thinking, maybe…just maybe we’ll have one less rapper creating songs that intend to corrupt the impressionable minds of our youth. All I could think of when he was talking about all of the good deeds he does is this scripture: Eph. 2:8-9 by grace have ye been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; – You can’t make it in (Heaven) on your good works! We as believes need to stop this lazy, complacent thinking. The things that this young man (Meek Mill) is doing is not pleasing to the Lord. And we should NOT sit here and be okay while he makes ANTI-CHRIST music. This minister was not judging him, he was trying to help him see the error of his ways before its to late. I wish there were more believers who would STAND with him and contend for the faith! Or will we just sit back and say, ‘its not that serious,’ while another soul is caught up in his flesh, consumed by darkness, who believes deceitful lies and false ideology?

    9 not of works, that no man should glory.

  3. If a person doesn’t believe in God, then coming at them with our beliefs and being emphatic about it is not what’s gonna convince them to suddenly see the error of their ways. We have to combine our beliefs with LOVE and WISDOM. Us as black christians are always ready to fight…but Jesus was only radical at certain times…other times he had the unique ability to relate to people who may not have believed like him, or understood what he was saying…and he won them from there. Overtalking a person and telling them they need to turn from their sin and turn their life over to God is not gonna work…if it were that simple a WHOLE LOT OF PEOPLE that aren’t saved would be!!!
