Meek Mill is a free man after being released on bail while he appeals drug and gun violations from a 2008 incident. This ends a 5-month stay in prison for the Philadelphia rapper.
Meek Mill wasted no time after being freed from the state prison at Camp Hill, taking off in a helicopter and flying straight to the Philadelphia 76er’s series-clinching win over the Miami Heat in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.
To the Philly District Attorney’s office, I’m grateful for your commitment to justice. I understand that many people of color across the country don’t have that luxury and I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues.
