According to reports, Meek Mill has been sentenced to three to six months prison time for violating his probation. Prosecutors were conscerned about “a number of recent incidents” involving Meek, including an apparent photo with a gun posted to the internet. When he recently came by the office, Meek kept his paperwork close, and outlined his longterm conflicts with the law:
I didn’t go to college, but I turned out to make a lot of money. Some people feel that I’m not entitled to be making a lot of money because they’ve been working a long time and think they deserve more then me… I had a lawsuit against a cop. He was black, I was black. I filed a lawsuit about him detaining me and locking me up on the day of my album release. The jury wasn’t from the city, they were from the suburbs, so they didn’t really know how things go in the city—that’s not a life they’ve ever lived. It’s my word against a cop’s word, and you know how that turns out.
A rep from Meek’s camp declined to comment.
