    I got Meek to call up there you ain’t give me my credit lol

    • Nikki

      You sound real thirsty and seeking much attention right there. After seeing this and your recent instagram post I know for certain your seeking attention just like its claimed that Jomo is.

  • Neanie beanie

    What’s wrong with that pastor he’s yearning for attention… Why would he call meek millz a rapist ! I would never go to this mans church ! He’s out of order ! He really just took it over board ! Amen to meek millz ! eff a jomo

  • Burrman

    This is ridiculous. First off Jomo said that he has the right to say Meek is wrong, yet he is going beyond his opinion and taking action to have him banned. That in itself seems very ungodly and personally motivated. For some reason Jomo believes he’s the personal defender of God. Violent lyrics and profane MUSIC (not limited to hip hop/rap) has been around long before Meek Millz. Yet this pastor seems to thinks he’s been chosen to lead this spiritual crusade against the offenders of Christianity?!?!? Once again religious fanaticism rears its ugly head. HATE should not be a part of ANY religion. I pray his congregation doesn’t fall into his own personal spirit of hate and intolerance.

      I do think the pastor went a little far, although I do understand where he coming from when he talks about the song “Amen”. The word amen should not be used in the same lyrics that profanity is used in. Due to respect for god and his believers whether your a believer or or not you still should watch your words more carefully because it could be sensitive to others. I believe in Jesus Christ. I’m also a huge fan of meek mill, I’m not perfect, no one is but I have to say I do
      feel a little funny sometime saying the word Amen to the versus in the song.

      Sasha, we’re definitely on one accord with the usage of the word AMEN and it’s relation to how it’s suppose to be used. And I actually agree with Jomo’s ideals as far as violent and profane music. But the his approach to this issue has led me to believe that’s its more to it than those ideals. I’ve sat and said to myself a many of times, that Kanye West can be VERY sacrilegious at times. But yet there is know book aim directly at Mr. West for this offense. Something in my mind spirit tells me that there is a personal agenda behind this whole issue brought to the light by Jomo K Johnson. Meek did not engineer nor mainstream this type of music yet he’s the sole target of this pastor’s campaign. Something’s not adding up.

  • Marveno

    Im also a believer of Jesus Christ.. But that pastor went overboard when he said meek raped a woman SMh

  • Kidd Coyote

    Now they pastor may have too it to the left with how much emphasis on Meek’s personal life as a reflection of his music. it’s a very catchy tune and i do like it but everyone with a bit of damn sense knows that this is disrespect. While Meek is holding tbs on all the things he should be doing to give back to the community he’s losing sight of what really matters. So what he handed out books, shoes, etc. who’s holding record but him. To say an it’s on camera sounds to me like he’s yearning for recognition of something he think he’s doing that’s outside his jurisdiction as a paid entertainer. It’ not. People spend their hard earned cash to see him and support him the least he can do is give back. He needs to enroll his nappy head ass in some college courses and get a grip. With that attitude he won’t be in this game too long.

  • Wrongo Jomo

    In light of the recent conflict between Meek Mill and Jomo K. Johnson on The QDeezy Show [Hot 107.9 Philly], I reached out to Johnson and extended an invitation for him to be a guest on the Real Rap radio show. He accepted and decided to call in to the show, which aired live on July 17th, on WWDB 860AM. The topic of this edition was Religion – Freedom or Bondage? and the question on the table was, “Is religion more divisive than it is unifying?”

    We asked Johnson some questions about his boycott against Meek Mill and during the conversation, which became quite tense, Johnson told us that Meek had just issued a public apology on July 16th, as a result of this boycott.

    Infuriating – to say the least.

    I’m not anti-Religion. I’m not anti-Bible. I’m not anti-Christian. If I’m “anti” anything, I would say that I’m anti-abuse of power and influence. I’m anti-use the Bible and the name of Jesus to suit your own personal agenda. It is irresponsible and reprehensible to use your position in the church to facilitate a campaign of personal condemnation, all in the name of the Lord.

    Jomo K. Johnson – Just WHO does this guy think he is? Under the guise of being a soldier for Christ, crusading to exalt the name of Jesus, Johnson attacked the character and livelihood of a booming young urban professional. When I look at Meek Mill, I see a young man who has: 1) worked diligently to build a successful business, 2) used his influence to encourage the youth to pursue their dreams and 3) has given back to his community.

    When people hear the name Jomo K. Johnson, they will not associate his name with a meaningful ministry, or some astounding work in the community. Instead Johnson’s reputation will be built on his effort to damage the character of another man. Johnson will be remembered for what he TOOK, not what he GAVE.

    As a church pastor, he is supposed to demonstrate the love of God, and his mission is supposed to be to bring people to Christ. Perhaps Johnson’s ministry would have had a better impact if he had concentrated his efforts on working with this influential young man to do something positive for the community. An amicable approach to address his concerns for the use of the terms “Amen” “Preach” and “Church” may have ultimately led to a collaborative campaign to reach the youth. Instead, what we saw was referred to by some media outlets as a “Holy War” and a “Battle.” This would have been a great “teachable moment”, and opportunity to work alongside Meek Mill to educate the young men that he SAYS he wants to “SAVE”. Instead, Johnson chose to be judge, jury and executioner – prompting a public apology by Meek Mill. Now the good pastor gets to say, “I forgive you young man. And I know that Jesus does too.” Somehow, he feels vindicated, as if he’s won a point for “Team Jesus.”

    Wrongo Jomo. You can’t save a thousand souls, by ostracizing one.

    Holding the title of “Pastor” does not automatically make one qualified as a Leader. And I challenge the suitability of a person who uses this position to “break down”, when in fact, they should be “building up”.

    Well, at least he got plenty of press. Maybe this will help him to sell his latest book “Deadest Rapper Alive: The Rise of Lil’ Wayne and the Fall of Urban Youth”

    Answering the question of whether or not religion is more divisive than it is unifying, Johnson is still on the attack and moving things right along to: divide and conquer – in the name of Jesus & Hip Hop, respectively. The Jomo K. Johnson promotional campaign speaks for itself.

    To Meek Mill: I respect you. I respect your craft. I respect your passion. But most of all, I respect that you have NOT forgotten Philadelphia, and the youth. I respect that you understand and have outwardly “SHOWN” the genuine characteristics of a positive role model – in the way that YOU know how to.

    Love, peace, and continued success to you!

    Seriously everyone who is defending meek on this really needs to get down an pray for common sense. Jomo is not the only one who feels this way trust me an i’m far from a saint but everytime I hear this song it makes me smh. He could have worded it differently an no it’s not just meek it’s various artist who needs to watch what they say.
