Philadelphia police are investigating an incident in which a man spray-painted racial slurs on the home owned by Meek Mill’s grandmother.
The vandal, who appears to be a white man, was caught on camera committing the crime, according to CBS 3 Philly. The Championships rapper shared a video of the incident on Twitter Tuesday.
“A white man sprayed racial remarks on my grandmom’s house last night in south Philly referencing white Privilege,” he wrote.
He added: “Just don’t let us catch you coward!”

Meek Mill’s publicist says the rapper has filed charges.
The rapper recently penned a powerful op-ed for the New York Times, calling for an overhaul of the criminal justice system.
“It’s clearer than ever that a disproportionate number of men and women of color are treated unfairly by a broken criminal justice system,” he wrote. “The system causes a vicious cycle, feeding upon itself ― sons and daughters grow up with their parents in and out of prison and then become far more likely to become tied up in the arrest-jail-probation cycle. This is bad for families and our society as a whole.”
