Meek Mill's recent guest appearance on Ellen has been shared online. The Philly rapper, who shared an op-ed on criminal justice reform in The New York Times on Tuesday, spoke about his 2007 arrest – including the allegedly false charges of threatening a police officer with a weapon – his ongoing sentence of probation, and his five month stint in prison this year after a judge determined that he violated that probation when he popped a wheelie in New York City. "A lot of people would say 'Oh, he belongs in jail,'" Meek said, "But I didn't commit a crime."
