If you ask most Philadelphia Eagles fans how they feel about their team’s Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots, you’d probably get a resounding, “finally!” or a loud, palpable scream. Meek Mill’s thoughts on the subject could likely be predicted too. The team used his “Dreams And Nightmares Intro” as a theme song throughout their championship mission. Their use of the song first gained attention after defeating the Minnesota Vikings and advancing to the Super Bowl. Not only is the energetic song as cinematic as it gets in hip-hop (even laying the blueprint for the “First Day Out” remix he jumped on), the Eagles’ use of the track is a show of solidarity with Meek, whose currently incarcerated on a 2-to-4 year probation violation.

It appears he’s keeping his spirits relatively high, focusing on the positives like the love he’s gotten from prominent Philly figures from the 76ers and the Eagles. John Clark, a journalist for Philly’s NBC affiliate, got a statement from Meek about the team’s victory. He posted it on his Instagram. “I feel especially proud to be from the great city of Philadelphia,” Meek said. “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.”

He added, “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.”
