The Meek Mill fight PHH reported about a week ago was absolutely true. Justin Card, The St. Louis airport employee, who had the altercation with the Dream Chaser Records boss, has spoken out. The now ‘ex-employee’ talked with TMZ about how the fight happened over Meek not wanting to take a picture and sending his security to fight the 20-something-years-old worker.
“I transport people to the airport and I see a lot of rappers, so I show ’em love. So I was like, what up Meek? Can I get a pic? He was like nah,” says the young man of how the beef started.
Mill, who’s been ducking a lot of social media since his fall out with Drake and Nicki Minaj, has been turning down fans for photos since last year. However, considering these are the same people who go to his show and buy his albums, the inevitable happened. Card found the ‘hootspah’ to call out Meek in front of his crew of street associates for not giving that same positive energy back.
Justin continues with his story elaborating on how things escalated to name calling, “Then I was like, I just said my opinion about rappers. Why y’all do us like that? We the fans. Why y’all don’t show us love? What, you too good to speak? And I guess his group got mad and he was like ‘B-tch’ and I called him ‘b*t*h’ back.”
The show did not end there. Apparently the grudge was held and the Philadelphia MC wanted to prove his DCR crew was no joke. He allegedly then sent over a few crew members to pursue the altercation with Justin Card.
“2 dudes walked up on me and was like ‘You still trying to fight?’ And I was, I was scared you know. [You know] I’m at work. I’m just defending myself, you know what I’m saying? [Because] I know he’s fixing to punch me, so I swung first. I could tell, you knew he was going to punch me,” says the Airport transportation employee.
After that the fight broke out and Meek Mill even supposedly joined in on the melee along with the employee’s cousin, De’Angelo Webb. Both lost their jobs as a results of the situation.
More as this escalates as it even sounds like a lawsuit could be brewing. Meek Mill got an injury to his hand during the fight allegedly.
