[ cheers and applause ] ♪ ♪ >> jimmy: thank you for coming back to the show.
and thank you for -- >> yeah. >> he was nervous by the way, to come back. after last time. >> jimmy: well, yeah. exactly. i mean, i don't know how to get into the whole thing. just for anye who doesn't know -- but i'm sure everyone already knows but, you got arrested when you were 19. >> yeah. 19-years-old. i caught a case of philelphia, actually. i don't know if everybody been to philadelphia. it's an environment where, where you know, we got pockets where like, there's ruthless environments.or where neigods where like drug infested neighborhoods, and you know, being in a certain area, i caught a case at 19-years-old. which i was falselaccused of a bunch of things, and i was put on probation for ten years. and i'm 31 years old now, and i'm still on probation. basically.im >>: 10 years? >> yeah, it extended. like, if anything happened -- like, you don't have to commit crime, but if anything happens along the way, they can just add years, and years, and years. so, it actually got tended to 16 years now. so i get off probation in 2023. so, if i was to loiter, or get a traffic ticket, i could go to jail for years.
>> jimmy: i just don't -- it's just crazy to me. that this seems ong. does the judge have it out for e,u, or what is the deal? >> uh, really, lou know, it's just that the way these statutes are set up, like if you had an 18 year old kid. he smoked marijuana. he got locked up for smoking marijuana, and got seven years probation, and then seven years later he had an opioid addiction, or got addicted to rc et -- the first time he takes percocet he would go to jail for what?ea five in prison. you know what i'm saying? not even committing -- >> jimmy: you did get addicted, right?h, >> y was addicted to opioids probably for about two, three years of my life. i started taking percocets, and any time i would go to s my probation officer -- you have a dirty urine, you go to jail. for say -- we next door to montgomery county. i'from the city, but montgomery county -- you got like a group of like caucasian kids. they're like -- there's a lot p ple addicted to opioids. they go to treatment. we go straight to jail, you know what m saying. so like, the laws are like, kind of different in different counties. you know, like people like myself, we actually get the bad
end of the stick. not saying that we shouldn't be punished for criminal activity, or you should not go to jail if you commit a crime, but uh, probation was designed for one to help better themselves, and i've been on probation for what --du >> your entire life. >> jimmy: really? >> yes. >> jimmy: well, now, how did you guys meet? what's the story here?fr you just becamnds? >> you know, we met at the all-star game. >> yeah, new york. >> yeah. >> jimmy: new york. >> probably four or five years ago. and in a lot of ways, meek reminded me of myself because az kept asking me business questions, like >> want to know the real deal? i was like, i see you. he was like, "who you?" i was like, "who you he was like -- [ laughter ] >> that is true. that is true. t>> one of the co-owners sixers. i'm like, "man, how do you get that much money?" like -- [ laughter ] >> he started asking questions like crazy, and i loved it cause that's the way i've learned and grown, and what's crazy is i think back, you know, this -- i guess this is four or five years ago. in the last year, you were always around. like you were, you know, at my house all the me, at the sixers games all the time. >> yeah. >> i'd be like, "meek, what's up brother?
get a job.li what are you doing? like, go out and perform. >> jimmy: really. >> like, i don't understand this." he's "michael, i can't leave philadelphia." i'm like, "well, how do you work?"e, he's li'm not allowed to leave philadelphia." so -- and that was like before any of this happened with him ng actually bentenced to prison. >> jimmy: what is the new foundation, this new organization. i s a new organization. me, michael rubin, robert kraft, and a few others n for the working last few months. since i've been -- since i've been in prison we probably staed working on it. and you know the main goal is -- what we got? how many people in prison? he>> 6.7 million people in criminal justice system today, in the u.s. five times the rate of the rest of the world. >> jimmy: five times the rate? >> five times the rate. it makes no sense. there's no logic. 's just a system that wa built decades ago that makes no sense, and it need aggressive people to say, "this is broken, we need to fix it." our mission is going to be very simple. which is, how do we get a a minimum of a million people out of the criminal justice system in the next five years. and how do we, over the next, you ow, kind of long term -- how do we cut the population in half?
and i think -- you know, meek, what i'm so me proud abou about -- this is a guy who sat in prison, and everyday we'd talk on the phone. it was, you know, "i'm lucky. like, i'm fortunate to hav everyone helping me. how do we help others? you know? maybe this happened for a a reason.t we've change the country, and help these other millions of people that are stuck in the system unfairly." jimmy: wow. do you feel like you're really lucky? >> uh yeah, i would say lucky where i come from. [ laughter ] me and tariq. we all come from the same area.h i thin guys over there are lucky. i come from a neighborhood where you know young black males lose their life on a a daily basis. families lose their lives, or are broken up because of the system. mothers and fathers,heir kids raised around addicts and stuff like that. so you know, we made it through all of that. and you know, just to have the support of the people. like, when i was in jail, i he wathe news, and seeing people rallying around, and supporting my incarceration. b i'n going to jail for like -- if i get a traffic ticket -- i left this show, popped a
a wheelie, and i was in jail since. you know what i'm saying? i went to jail, and did six months in jail. you kn what i'm saying? so to have some type of support -- where i come from, we don't really have a lot of support, so you know, i feel lucky. ld i feel lucky to be able to shed light on a she this to people that's trapped behind walls. they would never get a chance to shed light on that situation. we got innocent people. you got people in jail from d statutes that make no sense. they're just caught up in the system. so you know, i feel lucky. >> jimmy: do you -- do people watch "the tonight show"? >> yh. of course. lockdown at 9:00 o'clock, you know, the t.v. is on you know. >> jimmy: yeah, meek is fighting for you guys.
