May 18, 2018 - 6:14 pm

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A famous rapper backs out of a White House event.

Meek Mill dropped out of the event on prison reform, issuing a statement that said, "Unfortunately, the focus turned to the president and myself which concerned me that it might take away from creating a positive result from today's discussions." 

And while TMZ reports Jay-Z was one of several prominent African Americans who told Mill it would be a bad idea to attend, Mill says he never spoke to Jay-Z about the event.
