Meek Mill was forced to leave the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas by threat of arrest — and he says the whole situation was racist.

via TMZ:

The Philly rapper and 2 members of his security rolled up to the Cosmo at around 3:30 PM PT Saturday when they were stopped by security. You see in this video … security was not about to let Meek inside the hotel.

Our sources say Meek asked the guard why he couldn’t come in, saying he didn’t do anything untoward in the past — he had only been there once before, with Nicki Minaj for a Jay-Z event 5 years ago.

Security made it clear … if Meek got out of the car, he’d be arrested. Meek, who was there to see a  DJ Mustard show, continued to ask why he was being denied, but the guard said, “I don’t know why.”

Meek’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, tells TMZ, the head of security made it clear — the decision to ban Meek came from above … the security chief said, “This comes from way higher up than me.”

Tacopina says he spoke with someone whom he says is “a well-placed person inside the hotel” … whom Tacopina says told him a group of hotels have tried to keep rappers out of the hotels. Tacopina claims it’s racially motivated, saying, “They wouldn’t ban Vanilla Ice.”

Meek himself addressed the altercation on social media, writing in part … “Cosmopolitan hotel/casino going to extreme racist levels to keep too many black entertainers and black people …. they said they gone lock me up.”

He added, “Some of these casinos have a bunch of Tatics to keep the level of blacks down …. but love to take our money!!!! This happens to a lot of black entertainers not just me either!!”

According to an update, a demand letter was written by Meek’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, to the Cosmopolitan.

In the letter, Joe writes,

“… we have learned that the Cosmopolitan maintains a list of African American recording artists who should be denied access for no other reason than than their culture and skin color.  Such course of conduct constitutes discrimination per se, in violation of state and federal law, and exposes you to significant monetary damages. “…we urge you to promptly issue an apology to Mr. Williams and grant him immediate access.  In the event you fail to heed this one and only warning, we intend to puruse all legal recourse against you.”

Im not surprised one bit. Ive heard this for years living here in Vegas

So as im sitting at Lo-Lo’s Chicken and Waffle here in Vegas thinking of ways to improve EC and waiting on my shrimp and grits. Then it popped in my head to chronicle my OOTDs and share were to purchase the items. Today’s OOTD is very simple yet chic , i paired my chestnut RainbowOnline sandals with a gorgeous olive green dress i purchased from Ebay

After Lo-Lo’s my crew and i walked the stripped and i gambled 15 dollars at the Wynn Hotel &Casino . The whole walking the strip thing is exhausting but i look at it as exercise. I ended buying some all white Adida tennis shoes from inside the Fashion Show Mall.
