Rapper Meek Mill on Saturday accused the Cosmopolitan Hotel of being racist for denying him entry to the Las Vegas property and threatening to have him arrested for trespassing.
A video of his exchange with security personnel at the hotel posted on his Instagram account had more than a million views as of Sunday morning.
Meek Mill is seated in a vehicle outside the hotel and can be heard asking two men, “How can you tell me I’ll be locked up for trespassing?”
One of the men responded, “We’re a private property. At this time, with the information we have, we’re refusing to do business with you. We have the right to do that.”
Meek continued to question him, “You’re telling me I’ll be arrested if I don’t leave. If I walk upstairs to get something to eat, I’m going to be arrested? For what? For being a rapper?”
The man then said the hotel has “officially trespassed you.”
Mill asked again, “For what though? But what did you trespass me for?”
The man repeated, “We have a right to do that.”
Mill’s publicist told NBC News he was at the hotel to support DJ Mustard, who has a residency at Marquee Nightclub, and that he never got out of the car or entered the hotel.
