Meek Mill took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to share his thoughts on the recent unrest in Baltimore, Maryland.

“And tearing down Ya own neighborhood is not the solution. it only makes the system look down on us even more as blacks! Let’s pray 4 ,” Mill wrote in a series of tweets.

Hundreds have taken to the streets to protest and riot following the death of Freddie Gray, who on died on April 19 of a spinal injury while in police custody.

It is being reported that following Monday’s funeral, 15 officers were injured and at least 27 people were arrested. Over the past several days however, there have been 144 vehicle fires, 15 structures fires and nearly 200 arrests.

“I don’t condone what’s going on in Bmore “but” our people has been thru so much pain it’s hard to control your emotions,” the Meek also tweeted. “Cameras are finally bringing to light what’s been going on for years! So imagine the lies that’s been told that destroyed black families!”

He continued, “Cops came to court and said I chased them with a gun! I was found guilty 18 and been to jail 4 times for it and still on probation at 27. They almost ruined my life! Luckily I was strong enough to overcome it but it’s thousands who are not!!! I can’t wait to do .”

During Meek’s Twitter tirade, the rapper also slammed Donald Trump, who tweeted on Monday evening that “Our great African American President hasn’t exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are so happily and openly destroying Baltimore!”

“It’s clear been racist..saying our “African American president” it’s plain to see! We won’t miss u when u perish!”

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake announced that there will be a week long, city wide curfew at 10 p.m.

Cocktails & Coins! Inside Aisha Tyler’s Wild Life After Divorce & Departure From ‘The Talk’

Aisha Tyler went through a few MAJOR life changes over the past two years and now, the actress is back on top living life to the fullest.

In 2016, Tyler’s college love and husband of 20 years, Jeff Tietjens, filed for divorce from the actress. As if that weren’t an emotional challenge to overcome, Tyler was then ordered to pay Tietjens $31,250 a month in spousal support for the next four years, plus a lump sum of $500k.

Following the emotional split, Tyler’s career then took a big turn when she walked away from CBS’s The Talk. Just eight months ago, the actress left the show to pursue other passions. “I also have three other series (Criminal Minds, hosting Whose Line Is It Anyway? and voicing a character on Archer),” the actress said during the big announcement. “People always go, ‘How do you do all that?’ And I don’t always have an answer.”

While it might sound like Tyler’s woes and 360 of a life might seem completely damaging, it all turned for the better. “The unknown can be very compelling and can be interesting. Instead of thinking about it as change, think about it as dynamism,” she told HipHollywood during the screening of Dwyane Wade’s, Shot in the Dark. 

She explained, “You can’t stay the same, your life can’t stay the same. Staying the same is staying in place and staying in place is dying slowly. For me, I always reminded myself I’m not always going to feel this way, it’s not always going to be this tuff.”

“You cannot get through this experience on this planet without a little bit of pain and you need to know that and see that it’s temporary,” Aisha said. “My life is so interesting now and it wouldn’t have been without going through the stuff that I’ve been through. It’s been good for me; all this change.”

The actress is not only the star of some major network shows, but she also is about to launch her new cocktail line, Courage and Stone. “It’s been a really really exciting process,” she told us. “It really came out of my love of cocktails, my love of going to great bars and then going home and being like ‘I don’t know how to do all this.'”

Tyler then admitted that she was a whiskey girl at heart and that when she left the Talk “Julie Chen put me in a whiskey of the month club. She she’s doubled my collection in the last couple of months.”

Set to releae late spring early summer 2018.
