It looks like Pastor Jomo K. Johnson got his wish. Meek Mill issued an official apology yesterday on 106 & Park on BET and actually came across as likable. Ironically, I had just commented on “Amen” on another blog and only learned about the apology from another commenter. (In my defense, I was driving to Baltimore last night while 106 & Park was on the air or else it would have been my topic for today.) Shortly thereafter, Pastor Jomo K. Johnson accepted the apology and called off the boycott (while still managing to slam most hip-hop music in the process.) At least we know know that boycotts still work.
