(AllHipHop Rumors) You saw the story and you know the headlines:
Meek Mill has been sentenced to 2-4 years in state prison for violating probation by a Philadelphia judge.Jay-Z has denounced the judge’s decision, citing she overruled recommendations from other officials of the court. “The sentence handed down by the Judge -- against the recommendation of the Assistant District Attorney and Probation Officer -- is unjust and heavy handed,” Jay-Z. “We will always stand by and support Meek Mill, both as he attempts to right this wrongful sentence and then in returning to his musical career.”Meek Mill is managed by Jay-Z’s Roc Nation. Meek was arrested in two times this year, once in March and another time in August. Neither of those cases resulted in charges for the rapper but the judge still ruled he violated probation. The March case misdemeanor assault and the second incident was for reckless driving and reckless endangerment.
BUT - there may be more to the story than meets the eye. First of all, the judge that stuck it to Meek for 2-4 years is a Black women. In terms of court, that means very little, because the system is the system. It seems like calling the judge a “b!tch” in a song has worked against Meek. He has also very publicly been involved in the beat down of a few people, including Beanie Sigel, Safaree and Quentin Miller (the alleged Drake ghost writer). These matters did NOT result in any charges or arrests, but it is pretty undesirable behavior for a judge to see. People are saying that the Philly bull has been testing the limits of probation with his moves, especially with the wisdom of the system and history. Beanie Sigel was also in and out of the system too.
Free Meek for sure…but you have to move carefully when you are state’s property.
