Rapper Meek Mill may be worth millions and be a household name across the globe, but that didn't stop one hotel from denying him entry over the weekend.
Meek recorded an exchange between him and staffers of the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas.
"How can you tell me Imma be locked up for trespassing?" Meek asked the staff,
"You are on private property. This time, with the information we have, we are refusing to do business with you. We have the right to do that."
Meek was unimpressed with their vague response:
"Cosmopolitan hotel/casino going to extreme racist levels to keep too many black entertainers and black people. They said they gone lock me up.. I'm like for what I've been once to a party with jayz ..... Some of these casinos have a bunch of Tatics to keep the level of blacks down .... but love to take our money!!!! This happens to a lot of black entertainers not just me either!! I felt crazy being put out by these white men for no reason!" a frustrated Meek says.
But that's not all. According to TMZ, Joe Tacopina, Meek's lawyer has reached out to hotel for an apology to his client:
"We have learned that the Cosmopolitan maintains a list of African American recording artists who should be denied access for no other reason than than their culture and skin color," he wrote in a letter to the establishment. "Such course of conduct constitutes discrimination per se, in violation of state and federal law, and exposes you to significant monetary damages."
"We urge you to promptly issue an apology to Mr. Williams and grant him immediate access. In the event you fail to heed this one and only warning, we intend to pursue all legal recourse against you."
