Meek Mill was scheduled to take his pursuit of prison reform to the White House…that is until Jay-Z stepped in and convinced him to cancel the trip.

The rapper, who has taken on the cause since becoming its most high profile victim, was scheduled to visit 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. today, where he was expected to discuss his own egregious treatment in the criminal justice system during Donald Trump’s Prison Reform Summit, which will include members of Congress, various activists and victims of the system.

Thanks to a reported late night phone call from Jay-Z, Meek’s appearance at the summit is off.

Via TMZ:

We’re told Jay called Meek Thursday night and made it clear … meeting with Trump would be problematic for his image and for the cause.

We’re told other high-profile African-Americans also called Meek and voiced serious concern.

Meek listened, and sent his regrets.
