Meek Mill wasn’t there to witness the Philadelphia Eagles win Super Bowl LII, but his presence was surely felt throughout the stadium Sunday (Feb. 4) night.

To start the game, Mill’s hometown team played “Dreams and Nightmares” as the background music to trot onto the field, and would later celebrate to that same song.

In response to the kind gestures the Eagles showed him in their victory, Mill made a statement to NBC’s John Clark from jail.

“Last night, I felt especially proud to be from the great city of Philadelphia. All the heart that the Eagles showed in winning the Super Bowl has given the best fans in the world real hope and inspiration and I’m truly humbled,” Meek Mill told Clark.

“I wish my current situation was different, and that I could be with my brothers on that team, and the other Eagles fans, in celebrating this once-in-a-lifetime experience. But I have faith that truth and justice will win out in the end,” he continued.
