Sentencing has been delayed pending a Feb. 5 court hearing. Meek is not allowed to leave the area or perform until then.
Character witnesses testifying on Meek’s behalf haven’t been able to sway the judge in his favor, TMZ reports. Meek was called a “role model” and a "humble" philanthropist, according to the site.
Meanwhile, the Philly native is getting lots of support from the music community. Per Allyn's tweets, producer Kenny Gamble called him the “voice of the voiceless," while a label rep noted that Meek has a "year of philanthropy planned."
Upon taking the stand today, Meek admitted that he had some “growing” to do. ”Before this case I was on the road to destruction,” he reportedly said. "I walk around with Queen Nicki. Things are different now. I act different. I walk different. I can be the biggest rapper in the world."
The 28-year-old rapper’s probation stems from a 2008 drug and weapons conviction. He was called to court this month for attending an awards show without permission, and a suspicious drug test.
