(AllHipHop News) News broke this week Meek Mill could be facing more jail time after a judge ruled the Philadelphia rapper violated his probation. Several people testified on behalf of the Maybach Music Group artist, including his current girlfriend Nicki Minaj. Another music star that has faced criminal charges chose to defend Meek on social media.
Chris Brown sent out a series of tweets yesterday (December 17) where he stated the American justice system is “set on bullsh*t.” During his tweet spree, Brown claimed the United States is run by corrupt politicians and illegal narcotics. At one point CB asks, “Y’all wanna lock [Meek] up but what about Freddie Gray?”
The R&B singer was sentenced to probation and community service following the 2009 assault of his then-girlfriend Rihanna. His probation ended earlier this year.
Another entertainer that has faced the U.S. criminal courts first hand shared his thoughts about the situation as well. Turk, the New Orleans rapper who spent 8 years, 8 months and 16 days incarcerated on second-degree attempted murder charges, replied to Brown on his own Twitter timeline.
“We gotta be more accountable for our own actions. We know about the system,” wrote the former Hot Boys member. He later added, “The system is corrupt, but we can’t keep falling in the traps.”
