Meek Mill detained by Philadelphia Police before Dreams & Nightmares Party

The North Philly-born rapper ended up being late for his own party Wednesday night in Philadelphia. Meek Mill was detained by Philly police sometime around 8 pm after a vehicle he was in was stopped by officers around 11th and Girard.

"He was not arrested," Philiadelphia Police spokeswoman Julian Russell told RapFix. "He was stopped in a vehicle but was not arrested. He was only detained in a substation. In normal cases, we do not give out this kind of information, so I can’t release anything further." They did not release the cause of the detainment or the traffic stop.

The Maybach Music Group phenom was out to celebrate his record release party for his highly anticipated debut studio album Dreams & Nightmares. Meek Mill has quickly risen up in the game, coming off a summer in which he had one of the most popular mix tapes on the street.

Meek Mill hit up Twitter in response to his run in with Philly police:

“cops cost me a lot of money tonight .....taking pics of me like I'ma fuckin charges just holding”

“Nigga I ain't get knocked they was just tryna hold me back! Just scooped my nigga #brick Feds gave him 10yea”

“I ain't get locked up...definitely not in NYC with no gun! Cops just harassed and violated me last night in Philly just for being famous!”

The crazy part about is I really had a handcuff and Rolex on my wrist yesterday.... Really #DreamsAndNightmares
*(like his album cover!)

He had other things on his mind though. Of course he wishes well for the success of his album, Dreams & Nightmares which features Rick Ross, Wale, Nas, John Legend, Mary J. Blige, Trey Songz and Drake and is on pace to sell 200k, but he was also thinking about those affected by the recent storm. "This storm has been crazy," Meek said in a statement. "This is my first release, and I'm supposed to be so happy for it. But the same day my album came out, I was more worried about how my family was holding out and a tree falling on my house."

Update 11/06: Dreams & Nightmares debuted at #2 with 167,000 units sold.
