Meek Mill has received a sentence of two to four years in prison for violating his probation, according to US media reports. This stems from a 2008 drug and gun charges. He's been on probation ever since and was arrested in March after a fight in an airport and again in August for reckless driving, but both charges were dropped.
Jay-Z posts on twitter, expressing himself and says the punishment is "unjust and heavy handed". This isn't Meek Mill's first violation of the law. In 2015, Nicki Minaj promised Judge Genece Brinkley that she would keep him on the straight and narrow after lawyers argued that he changed his travel schedule without court approval and had missed a drug test.
Lawyers had recommended that Meek Mill should not be imprisoned for the probation violations, noting he has been off drugs since January and has complied with most requirements of probation, according to CBS. But Judge Brinkley is reported to have said that she's been trying to help Meek Mill for 10 years but the rapper does what he wants. Meek Mill's lawyer say they'll appeal against the sentencing.
