MMG rapper sentenced to three to six months.
Meek Mill may be promoting his upcoming album Dreams Worth More Than Money from jail. The Maybach Music Group rapper has been sentenced to three to six months behind bars for violating the terms of his probation, Philadelphia's Fox 29 reports.
According to the report, Mill is currently in police custody due to "a number of recent incidents" that seemed to violate his probation, including posting a picture of himself holding a gun on social media. The Philly MC was sentenced to five years' probation in 2009 following time served for a gun and drug conviction.
Judge Genece Brinkley, who revoked the rapper's probation, seemed saddened to do so.
"After all these years of me trying to help him move his career forward...I believe this defendant is basically thumbing his nose at me," Brinkley told Mill's attorney. The MC, born Robert Williams, pleaded for leniency. "It took me 15 years to get here and this will be extremely damaging to my life," he said. Unfortunately, his pleas fell on deaf ears this time around.
Earlier this week, Meek was involved in a social media spat with Maybach Music Group member Wale. The incident with his MMG labelmate was followed by a war of words on Twitter with Philly rapper Louie V Gutta.
