Meek Mill parties with Drake and some other friends in his video for his latest single, 'Amen.'
Meek Mill has dropped an official video for the single "Amen" on Sunday, July 15. Drake who's featured on one verse appears in the clip as well. He does his verse while hanging out in front of the Philadelphia Art Museum with his collaborator. In some other scenes, Meek is spitting out his rhymes in front of two luxury cars and a private jet.
The video, which was made by Dre Films, shows the aftermath of a night of heavy partying. People pass out in full club attire scattered around the room. There are also several cameos to look out for in the video. They include Fat Joe, French Montana, J. Cole, Waka Flocka Flame, and Mack Maine.
The track making use of the words "amen" and "church" along with some racy lyrics recently sparked some controversy. A pastor from Meek's hometown of Philadelphia, Rev. Jomo K. Johnson, called for a boycot of the song.
He was quoted in the Philadelphia Daily News as saying, "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."
The two finally spoke on Hot 107.9's "The Q Deezy Show" on July 11 and Meek accused the pastor of "trying to get famous." The rapper said that maybe the pastor needed money for his church and that they could have talked about it but he "went about it like you looking for attention and fame."
Despite the speed bump, the video dropped as scheduled. "Amen" is the third track off the Mill's mixtape, "Dreamchasers 2" and is also the lead single off his debut album, "Dreams and Nightmares" which drops in the U.S. on August 28.
