Judge Grounds Meek Mill, Further Restricts Rapper's Travel
(AllHipHop News) A Philadelphia judge banned Meek Mill from traveling the entire month, spoiling the rapper's plans for an international tour, as well as a high-profile network TV appearance.
Lawyers for Meek Mill squared off in Municipal Court yesterday (December 17), over whether or not the rap star would be allowed to tour for the rest of the year.
The 25-year-old rapper, who is signed to Rick Ross' Maybach Music Group, is currently on probation for a 2008 gun/drug conviction.
Meek Mill was supposed to go on a tour of Africa this month, with stops in Lagos, Nigeria, Libreville, Gabon.
The rapper was also supposed to appear on the Conan O'Brien show tomorrow, but that has also been scrapped, since he cannot leave his hometown of Philadelphia.
Meek Mill told NBC 10 that the judge's ruling will severely impact his earnings for the rest of the year, which he needed to support his child, family and an entourage of "dozens."
