Yo Gotti Stands With Meek Mill Following Cosmopolitan Hotel Ban

Posted on in Fresh Gems

Las Vegas, NV – Yo Gotti has weighed in on Meek Mill’s recent experience at the Cosmopolitan Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

In a statement sent to HipHopDX, the Memphis rap force admits he’s had his own issues with not only the Cosmopolitan but other Sin City hotels, claiming they discriminated against him in a similar fashion.

“Unfortunately, I’ve experienced similar discrimination at the Cosmopolitan and other Vegas hotels,” Gotti says. “It’s a disgrace that these establishments continue to judge us by the color our skin and our pressions instead recognizing our artistry and dedication to our communities.

“I stand with Meek Mill and all my peers in the Hip Hop community that have been disrespected by places like the Cosmopolitan.”

Meek was barred from entering the Cosmopolitan on Saturday (May 25) when he was attempting to see a DJ Mustard show at the Marquee Dayclub. When he asked the security team why he wasn’t allowed in, they were unable to provide him with a concrete answer and threatened to arrest him.

But, in the days since the incident, the Cosmopolitan claims Meek was banned because a past fight on their property, then changed courses and said he wasn’t let in because the club was already at “capacity.”

Meek’s attorney Joe Tacopina issued a statement on Monday (May 27) in response to the Cosmopolitan’s statement citing capacity concerns.

“The assertion that the Cosmopolitan denied Meek because capacity concerns at Marquee Dayclub is outright false,” the statement read. “In the recorded video, Meek also inquired about getting a meal at one the hotel’s restaurants, yet their security team continued to deny Meek and said he would be arrested for trespassing regardless location in the hotel premises. The Cosmopolitan’s conduct continues to be deplorable.”

Meek and Tacopina have vowed to sue the hotel.
