Many reports have since surfaced that the judge over the case had a personal vendetta against him, so the hammer was dropped and he received a 2-4 year prison sentence at the height of his career. "I want y'all to understand that, if it takes Meek Mill to draw this attention, then we're gonna use Meek Mill to draw this attention, and it's gonna speak for so many others".
Within the letter, Rubin writes Meek Mill is a "good friend" and whom he met well over four years ago at the NBA All-Star Game. He continued, "Please know that I am devoted to his future and to making sure he accomplishes the goals that you have set forth for him". I would hate to see him incarcerated for these violations.
Rozay & the supporters gathered outside of the Criminal Justice Center, where they chanted "Free Meek" and even sang along to his "Dreams and Nightmares" record, the intro and title track off the Philly rapper's debut album. A couple other celebrities also showed up to the rally including some Philadelphia Eagles players like Wendell Smallwood, Torrey Smith, and Jalen Mills. "We stand for justice", read a poster for the rally tweeted by the Roots' Tariq Trotter, also known as Black Thought.
Last week, a petition asking Pennsylvania governor Tom Wolfe to reevaluate his sentencing was started and rappers including Jay-Z criticized the sentence as well, calling it "unjust and heavy handed". Mill's lawyer Joe Tacopina told the site that he's filing the motions because he claims the judge has a personal vendetta against Mill.
Judge Genece Brinkley is reportedly being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for possible relationships she might have in Philly - including to a local music mogul she allegedly asked Meek to sign with - as well as a possible "extortionate demand". according to the New York Post.
