*Tonight (04-12-18) on “NBC Nightly News,” Lester Holt speaks exclusively by phone to imprisoned rapper Meek Mill, who has gained the support of politicians and celebrities across the country and become a national symbol for criminal justice reform.

Holt also asked Meek Mill about life after prison.

“I think God delivered me a job to help people—helping minorities that come from these situations like myself. I say don’t show me no pity because this is my life—this is what I’m going through and I think God put me in this position to be able to do a show with Lester Holt and open up eyes for other young black men.”

The “NBC Nightly News”/Lester Holt piece also includes an interview with Philadelphia district attorney Larry Krasner.

“We now have information that was not available to the judge at the beginning, and that is in no way her fault, indicating that there are questions about the integrity of the conviction,” Krasner said. “And those questions are substantial.”

Meek is serving his 2-4 year prison sentence for a probation violation. Judge Genece Brinkley, who set his sentence, recently denied Meek’s petition for her recusal and rejected a request to reconsider the sentence.
