Meek Mill Is Out Of Solitary Confinement, Bail Hearing Dropped

Meek Mill has been removed from solitary confinement. Actually, the Philly rapper has been moved to a new prison, and is in general population. 

Reports TMZ:

An official at the State Correctional Institution in Chester, PA tells TMZ … the rapper was just transferred to their prison and out of Camp Hill. He’s now in general population and he has his own cell.

We broke the story … Meek wanted out of solitary because he feared it would take a severe toll on his mental state.

Meek can now hit up the yard in the morning or afternoon. He can ball out on the court or go for a jog. Should he fancy himself with a book, he can read it at the on-site library or in his cell. Gym time will depend on which job he ends up taking … which, by the way, pays 19 cents an hour.

Reportedly, Meek will have the choice of two jobs—cooking or cleaning jail cells.

Meek was thought to be scheduled to go back in front of the judge on Nov. 27 for a new bail hearing.

However, it turns out it was just a clerical error, per Philly.com, so the rapper will remain in prison, for now.

Remy Ma Explains Her Meek Mill Comments On Boom 103.9

When Meek Mill got hit with an unjust and unwarranted two to four prison bid many of his Hip-Hop peers reacted with support, shock and disgust.

Unfortunately Remy Ma made some comments that not only put Meek in a bad light but also garnered her some backlash from the Hip-Hop community.

Recently the Queen of New York sat down with DJ Caesar and Paris Nicole for an interview on Boom 103.9 and took a minute to explain that, “I was joking and my interview had got cut and taken out of context.”

Remy then went into how a prison bid not only affects the person who is getting locked up but everyone who depends on said person.

Check out the clip below.

Meek Mill Said He Battled Percocet Addiction, Gets New Mugshot

Meek Mill, born Robert Rihmeek Williams, is back in prison, and has a new mugshot to prove it. Interestingly, in his statement to the judge who sentenced him, the Philly rapper revealed he was battling a Percocet addiction. 

Although his parole officer and the prosecution recommended no jail time, Judge Genece Brinkley still sentenced him to 2 – 4 years, citing a failed drug test, failure to get permission to travel and the now infamous cases of reckless driving in NYC and an assault in a St. Louis airport, that were both dismissed.

“I’ve been trying to help you since 2009,” said Brinkley during the sentencing, per NBC 10. “You basically thumbed your nose at me.”

Meek Mill offered up a statement that included an admission to his addiction to the aforementioned painkiller.

Reports NBC 10:

Mill owned up to the violations in his only statement during the hearing and said that jailing him would likely end his musical career. He said that he has battled addiction to the prescription painkiller Percocet and that he has only tried to escape a life of crime.

“I may have made a mistake but I never had the intention of disrespecting you,” he said.

His lawyer, Brian McMonagle, restated the prosecutor’s recommendation of no prison sentence back to the judge as Mill emptied his pockets and removed jewelry from his wrists. With a court officer looming behind him, Mill turned his head and looked backed in the direction of his mother before standing up and being led out of the room by the officer.

Cold world.

Meek’s mugshot was reportedly taken at the state prison in Graterford, Montgomery County, PA.

Also, a petition has been started to have the judge on his case disbarred.

Meek Mill Sentenced To 2-4 Years In Prison For Parole Violation

This is not a joking matter. Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill has been sentenced to 2 – 4 years in prison for a parole violation. 

According to the Associated Press, Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley sentenced Meek because of a failed drug test and not heeding a court order that restricted his travel.

Reportedly, the prosecution actually recommended that Meek not be sentenced to prison, noting he had been clean since January.

However, it seems like a pair of cases that were dismissed (reckless driving in NYC and assaulting a fan in an airport) nevertheless affected the judge’s decision.

While Meek is responsible for the actions that led him to this fate, it seems like the judge was at her wit’s end since she noted she’s been dealing with the rapper in court for 10 years.

Per TMZ, the “Amen” rapper was immediately taken into custody and will have to serve a minimum of 2 years. Meek Mill’s lawyer plans to appeal.

Hip-Hop Reacts To Meek Mill Catching A 2-Year Bid For Parole Violation

Meek Mill is heading back to prison. The Philadelphia rapper was just sentenced to 2 – 4 years in prison for violating his parole, and Hip-Hop Twitter is in its feelings.

Some of the common reactions are ire at the Justice System, with many feeling that Meek caught a raw deal. There is also plenty of support from fans and his peers.

While there is slander, it’s been relegated to only coming from the most dedicated of trolls because no one wants to see a Black man who for all intents and purposes made it out the hood, going to jail.

Then when you start to think of the sentences Black man killing cops have gotten, if any…

Jahlil Beats Says Bobby Shmurda’s “Hot N***a” Was Originally For Meek Mill

Jahlil Beats‘ career took off in 2011 with Meek Mill‘s smash “Ima Boss” with his Maybach Music Group boss Rick Ross on the help out. However, things really exploded in 2014 with the mega-popular Bobby Shmurda hit “Hot N***a” that the Roc Nation producer says was originally intended for his Philadelphia brethren.

DJ Booth sat down with Jahlil Beats as he broke down the story behind some of his biggest records. In fact, he revealed in the chat that “Ima Boss” was intended for Jeezy but after a chance listening session, Meek took the record for himself and it was suggested that Rozay hop on the record, which prompted Meek to officially get down with MMG. Jahlil says his connection to Meek Mill came by way of Myspace – remember that? – but he used the more modern social media tool of Instagram to fully connect with the now-incarcerated Shmurda.

From DJ Booth:

“That beat was actually for Meek Mill as well. At the time, he had so much of that type of music, so I sent it to Lloyd Banks. He put the record out and never really did nothing with it. Nowadays, it’s like rappers put your record out and if it pops off, then they do the business side. So he put it out and I was like, ‘Aight, cool.’ I really fucked with the record.

“I put the instrumental out on one of my Crack Music instrumental tapes. Bobby Shmurda and Rowdy Rebel, they were big fans of me and Meek and they would do a lot of my beats. He ended up doing the record and…it just blew up, man. The crazy thing about it is, I found out last. I didn’t know who he was at all. I saw people tagging me in it, in the video where he’s throwing the hat up and all that. And then my cousin sent me a tweet from Kevin Durant where he’s talking about it. That was when I knew it was big.

“I found [Bobby] on Instagram and I reached out to him. He was like, ‘Listen man, I’m just trying to get out of the streets. Can you give me your blessing?’ I was like, ‘Yeah! Rock out with it.’ Sha Money XL reached out to me as well and was like, ‘I’m about to sign this kid, let me know what’s up.’ Sha Money cut me a nice check for that record and the ‘Shmoney Dance’ record.
