Meek Mill has officially been released from prison. In celebration, Mill was picked up by 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin and escorted in a helicopter to the Wells Fargo Arena for the Sixers/Heat game. Upon arriving, he told reporters he was feeling great before heading in for a well deserved shower. Mill rang the ceremonial bell before the game, which had reportedly been designated for Tinashe before news of Mill's release broke. Check out footage of it below.

JAY-Z (who Mill thanked earlier today) shared a note to Facebook, saying "Today, Meek Mill, a son of Philadelphia, is a free man. He was incarcerated unjustly and caught in a probation trap for years by a broken system. Now we can celebrate his release. We thank every individual that has supported and fought alongside Meek every step of the way."
