Earlier this week, Rev. Jomo K. Johnson took to Philadelphia radio to encourage music lovers to boycott their hometown hero Meek Mill and his "blasphemous" song, "Amen." In response to the attempt, Mill and the good Reverend attempted to hash out their differences live on the air Wednesday on Hot 107.9's The Q Deezy Show. "I want to encourage every rap fan in Philadelphia who is a believer in Jesus Christ, to boycott Meek Mill until he acknowledges this blatant disrespect," Johnson originally professed. "And being resident of North Philadelphia and pastor, I revoke Meek's 'hood pass' until this happens."
As the on-air conversation between the two began, Meek called into question the pastor's modus operandi, saying, "This looking like you trying to get famous, or you need some attention, because you could have came to me and said anything you wanted to say. If you needed money for your church, I mighta woulda gave you that money. I mighta even remixed the song with Kirk Franklin. You went about it like you looking for attention and fame."
The pastor, who once served four years in jail for aggravated assault on an officer, retorted with, "My plea to you is to turn from sin, turn from blasphemy, turn from unrighteousness and receive eternal life."
At an impasse, they decided to settle their differences with a thumb wrestling contest. The winner? God.
