Meek Mill Is Free From Prison! Rapper Walks Out a Free Man

LONG overdue!

UPDATE: Meek has officially walked out of prison.

Meek Mill, who has been locked up and stuck in a web of unethical and potentially illegal behavior by police and officials, is set to be released after the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania ordered his immediate release.

He was imprisoned for a violation of parole, which stems from a complex history of drug and gun charges a decade ago. His imprisonment has sparked immense debate with tons of support coming from big business, entertainment, and government officials.

The arresting officer was found to be on a “dirty cop” list, and the judge, Genece Brinkley, who presided over Meek’s case has been accused of bias and malice after he refused to shout her out and remake a song specially for her. While the prosecutor had recommended Meek’s release, she refused to release him. She rescheduled another hearing for June, keeping him in jail in the meantime.

“While the past five months have been a nightmare, the prayers, visits, calls, letters and rallies have helped me stay positive,” the rapper said in a statement.

“To the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office, I’m grateful for your commitment to justice. I understand that many people of color across the country don’t have that luxury and I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues. In the meantime, I plan to work closely with my legal team to overturn this unwarranted conviction and look forward to reuniting with my family and resuming my music career.”

Meek’s attorney said, “We are also pleased that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has noted that Judge Brinkley may opt to remove herself from presiding over any further proceedings in Meek’s case in the interests of justice,” the statement read. “Meek is exicted to be reunited with his family, and we, along with Meek, intend to continue to shine the light on a justice system in need of reform to prevent any other citizen from being put through what Meek has endured.”

The ruling came just after Kevin Hart visited Meek in jail. “I just left seeing my guy. The first thing I want to say is I’m really happy to see that he’s in a positive mindset,” Hart told reporters. “The frustration for me is, why is he still there?”

“When you know that you’re innocent, it’s tough to sit through something that you know you didn’t do. This is a guy I’ve known for years, and through those years of this relationship, the talk of probation has always been a distant conversation because it was b—–t,” Hart said.

“It’s something that he didn’t do. Pointing a gun at a cop as a black man – guys, we all know the consequences behind that – that you’ll end up dead in today’s time. So I doubt that that could happen and you’re able to walk away from it.”
