Cent Responds After Meek Mill Sentenced To 2-4 Years In Prison

50 Cent

Naturally, such big news has the hip-hop community feeling distraught, especially given the complicated circumstances surrounding Meek's verdict; while he did violate his probation, it's hard not to feel like the judge was making an example out of him, and thus, doling out "justice" with excessive force.

Meek Mill was convicted on drug and gun charges in 2008 but released in 2009 under a 5-year parole agreement.

On Monday, rapper Meek Mill was sentenced to two to four years in state prison for failing a drug test.

Shortly after being sentenced to 2-4 years of prison, the Philadelphia rapper took his mug shot and was processed by Pennsylvania's Dept. of Corrections. "It is highly unusual for a judge to show up at community service", she says. You gave me the ladder to do what I have to do to prevail in my struggle.

In his mugshot from the state prison in Graterford, Montgomery County, Mill is seen in a yellow prison outfit, staring straight at the camera.




But Mill's attorney Joe Tacopina told Billboard he believes the case was personal for Judge Brinkley, and her sentence stems from an "infatuation" with the rapper.

DeSimone, according to a court document, told Brinkley that Mill wanted to discuss his experiences performing community service but "would feel more comfortable relaying some of his thoughts and experiences" to the judge in private.

The reaction to Mill's sentence was swift and angry among hip-hop fans and creators.

"I'm human. I'm not ideal", Mill said to Brinkley in court on Monday, according to a report from Philly.com. On Wednesday, Gabriel Roberts, a spokesman for the Philadelphia court system, issued a statement on her behalf saying, "because this matter is subject to future litigation, there will be no comment at this time".

In ending Mill's probation, Brinkley cited technical violations including misdemeanor arrests in New York City and St. Louis and providing a urine specimen that showed he was using the prescription narcotic Percocet. "Maybe she felt scorned that he didn't add her in a song that she may have requested for". "I'm asking for mercy".
