Meek Mill was sentenced to 2-4 years in prison by a Philadelphia judge for probation violations stemming from a nine-year old case. According to the judge in charge of the case; Judge Genece E. Brinkley, the 30-year old rapper failed a drug test and also refused to adhere to her orders after giving him countless opportunities to be repentant.

Some of the celebrities to publicly show support for the 30-year old includes hip hop Mogul Jay Z, Nipsey Hussle, Kevin Hart, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Isaiah Thomas and several more.
