Though it's unclear if the nation's recent tragedies influenced his decision, Meek Mill has announced that he will no longer rap about "extreme violence."

The rapper shared the news on Instagram in a post that also touched on self-value, credibility and Black lives, and encouraged his "people" to "adapt and survive."

Read his post below.

Once I found out I wasn't born to fail and just fall victim to a fake ass life that don't offer shit but a jail,death i carry myself with extreme confidence and I know my value... even tho that's where we came from and all most of us has ever experienced in life! Wake up! Don't question my raps because it's a life we lived and suffered from, I have a right to express my myself! BY THE WAY ....AFTER DC4 I won't continue to rap about extreme violence!!! But I will remain to let my people know in these terrible environments to adapt and survive at any cost because "US BLACK PEOPLE ARE STILL AT WAR WITH OURSELVES AND THE SYSTEM IN REAL LIFE! #grammarcheck I don't talk the "AMERICAN ENGLISH" because I don't believe in it...I never cared about writing or speaking that way! I dont dress that way .... I'm doing me better yet doing #us
