LAS VEGAS — Rapper Meek Mill is claiming that he was kicked out of the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, according to TMZ .

Mill and two members of his security team were supposedly stopped by the luxury hotel's security around 3:30 p.m., May 25 as they arrived.

They were told that if Mill got out of the car, he would be arrested.

When asked why, a security guard reportedly said he did not know.

Mill’s lawyer claims that he was told that hotel-casinos are making an effort to keep rappers out of hotels.

Mill accused the Cosmopolitan of being racist in a video posted on social media.

Mill’s lawyer has supposedly written a demand letter saying, “… we have learned that the Cosmopolitan maintains a list of African American recording artists who should be denied access for no other reason than their culture and skin color.”

The Cosmopolitan provided the following statement to KTNV:

As a matter of company policy, we do not comment on legal matters. Our guests’ safety and security always remains our top priority.

Mill is advising people on social media not to visit the hotel-casino.
