It seems pretty much everyone’s talking about Squid Game these days, including Meek Mill, who had some thoughts about the show parallels to "hood poverty".

Squid Game, which is btw well on its way to become the most watched series ever on Netflix (#netFLEX) follows 456 cash-strapped contestants that accept an invitation to compete in children's games with deadly stakes, for a tempting massive cash prize.

As Netflix’s Vice President of Content for Asia Pacific, Minyoung Kim, recently told The Hollywood Reporter, “the essence of the show is its commentary on social injustice — class divisions and financial inequality…These social injustice issues aren’t only Korean — the whole world is struggling with them.” Which clearly Meek agrees with, by pointing out the similar issues of economic disparity in America.
