Meek Mill is finally out of prison after months of fighting, but the rapper thinks that the battle is not won yet.
'I've got a lot of responsibility, I've got a lot of important people depending on me, ' Meek said towards the end of the short teaser. I didn't feel free since I caught this case at the age of 19'.
In a sneak preview of the interview that is due to air as an upcoming Dateline NBC special, the pair discussed the 30-year-old's journey.
Numerous supporters of Mill began protesting outside the courthouse back in November when the artist was first sentenced to two to four years in prison over his 2008 arrest for drug and gun possession and then violating parole. Last November, the rapper was arrested for violating probations over drug and gun possession charges that were made nearly ten years ago, when Mill was only 21.

Governor Ralph Northam is calling on the federal government to make more than 200 low-income areas eligible for new tax breaks. Unless the program is renewed later, those who did not submit requested census tracts effectively opted out of the program.
When asked by NBC's Lester Holt if he feels free, Meek replied: "No I don't feel free". "There's a lot of light shedded on my situation". I'm 30 now. And me, I pray.
Holt also spoke with Michael Rubin, owner of the 76ers, and Philadelphia D.A. Larry Krasner.
The 76ers co-owner told Holt: 'His story is so much bigger than his life. this is about how can he be the symbolic change agent that was needed for major criminal justice reform'. "And [I'm] not talking about them people, the public officials". Mill rang the ceremonial bell and met with some of the players before the game started.
"I did go to the game last night, hugged him and just telling him how proud of him I was last night, how he endured and proud that now he's committed to doing this wonderful thing for other people which is to make sure this kind of thing can't happen again", said McMonagle.
