(AllHipHop News) Robert “Meek Mill” Williams is no longer under the supervision of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Yesterday, news broke that the Philadelphia-raised rapper pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor firearms gun possession charge, ending an 11-year legal battle.
Meek had been on probation since being convicted in 2008. In July, the Pennsylvania Superior Court overturned the felony conviction and ordered a new trial in the drug and gun possession case.

The “Stay Woke” spitter addressed his newfound freedom on Twitter. Meek told his 8.2 million followers, “I really put that sh*t behind me today ….. I beat the streets.”
Since being released from state prison in 2018 for a probation violation, Meek Mill has become an advocate for criminal justice reform. He joined with Roc Nation founder Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter, Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, CNN political contributor Van Jones, and others to launch the REFORM Alliance.
