Meek Mill is a free man.
After spending the past five months in prison for violating his probation, stemming from gun and drug charges when he was 21, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, according to TMZ, made the decision to overrule Judge Genece Brinkley, who last November sentenced the MMG rapper to two to four years behind bars.
Following his release, Meek wrote the following on Twitter:
"I’d like to thank God, my family, my friends, my attorneys, my team at Roc Nation including JAY-Z, Desiree Perez, my good friend Michael Rubin, my fans, The Pennsylvania Supreme Court and all my public advocates for their love, support and encouragement during this difficult time," Meek said in a statement to TMZ.
Meek Mill will "more likely than not" appear at tonight's Philadelphia 76ers playoff game versus the Miami Heat, according to The New York Times reporter Daniel Victor, who spoke with 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin.
