The Blast reports that Meek can petition the court to leave and that he is due to attend an evidentiary hearing on June 18.

Meek Mill's first port of call after being released was to attend a Philadelphia 76ers game on Tuesday night. He rang the opening bell before the NBA play-off game. He has subsequently given an interview to NBC News in which he spoke about his freedom and the need for reform to the criminal justice system.
