Executive produced by Meek Mill and Jay-Z, Free Meek chronicles Mill’s life from his rise in music to his incarceration and eventual release from prison. The five-episode docuseries examines how Mill has been repeatedly returned to prison based on trivial violations of his parole, by an allegedly biased judge overseeing his case, and probes the problematic circumstances of the original charges, of which he maintains his innocence.

Free Meek thoroughly presents the frustrating circumstances that have halted the titular artist’s music career. The five-episode docuseries is such an eye-opener that it may change some minds along the way.
