'Yo, Tom, you're the GOAT': Meek Mill slides into Tom Brady's DMs originally appeared on nbcsportsboston.com

The are many who think Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all-time. Count Meek Mill among them.

Mill recently spoke about criminal justice reform at the MIT Sloan Analytics Conference, and at the end of his speech, he shared this anecdote about a recent conversation he had over a direct message with Brady (per Nicole Yang of The Boston Globe).

"I was like, ‘Yo, Tom, you're the GOAT,' " he recalled. "I didn't even know Tom Brady knew who I was. I just took a shot. And he was like, ‘I see that you've been through so much. What you went through was kind of like almost harder than winning a Super Bowl game.' "

Obviously, Brady was joking, but if anyone knows how hard it is to win a Super Bowl, it's Tom Brady.

Mill, a rapper and criminal justice reform advocate, spent five months in prison after being issued a two-four year sentence in November of 2017 for violating a nearly decade-old probation. Mill fought hard to have the conviction and prison sentence overturned.
