In an interview with Vogue, Meek Mill revealed that he will release his new album on November 30, which will be his first since 2017’s Wins & Losses. Here are highlights:

On his criminal justice reform organization: “We’re taking a superhero approach, where we’re trying to do amazing things . . . things that have never been seen before. We started with a bold number, saying we’re trying to help free a million people, and we’re not saying free a million people out of prison. Half of these people are on probation or parole, or on cash bail and things like that.”

On probation: “Probation is like, they say, to help rehabilitate you and help you better yourself coming out of prison. In my mind, I never felt like I was fucked up. [Probation is a] trap door that’s gonna keep you in and out of the system. You don’t even have to commit a crime to go back to prison.”

On Kanye West’s support of Donald Trump: “I don’t represent what Kanye is talking about. I represent people on the inside, because I am one of the people on the inside. I see Kanye said something about the 13th Amendment, but, you know, they say if you go to prison, you’re allowed to be basically treated as a slave. I was actually shackled from ankle to wrist.”
