PREVIOUS: Meek Mill missed Thanksgiving, but he’ll definitely be home in time for Christmas. The 27-year-old is set to be released from the Curran-Fromhold Correctional Facility sometime today (Dec. 2), reports Philadelphia’s Fox 29.

Fox 29’s Dave Schratwieser and Steve Keeley tweeted about the MMG rapper’s early release this morning. After he gets out, Meek must complete community service and anger management counseling before he will be allowed to tour and travel again.

The “Amen” rhymer was given three to six months in jail for probation violation back in July. At the time Meek pleaded with the judge explaining that the sentence would be “extremely damaging” to his “life.”  He was granted release a month early for completing “three jail programs," according to one of Keeley’s tweets.

Meek's incarceration derailed the release of his second studio album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, now slated to drop in January.
