Jay-Z Happy Over Meek Mill's Release

Jay-Z Happy Over Meek Mill's Release

The rapper was released from prison Tuesday afternoon and immediately went straight to the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia to watch his hometown 76ers take on the Miami Heat. While it's good that he isn't sitting in prison for four years for popping a wheelie on a motorcycle, he is not innocent and he should not be praised as a hero.

And what kind of arrests past year led him to be sentenced again?

Meek Mill is being released from state prison on bail after a almost six-month legal battle over the Philadelphia rapper being sentenced to serve two-to-four years behind bars in November of last year for violating his parole.

For example, in 2014 he left the state of Pennsylvania for a gig without getting approval from the court. After Judge Genece Brinkley refused to release Mill on bail, the rapper's lawyers said they would take their case to a higher court.

The "All Eyes on You" hitmaker - whose real name is Robert Williams - also revealed he plans to continue fighting to have his conviction overturned, and insisted he would be returning to the studio to record new music soon.

Meanwhile, between 2015 and 2017, Mill was in a relationship with fellow rapper Nicki Minaj and in 2015 she told the judge she would help Mill to follow the rules of his parole.

Mill has said he was badly beaten during the 2008 arrest and placed a bloody mugshot of himself as the cover of his "DC4" mixtape.

The Supreme Court asked the judge to issue an immediate order for Mill's release on unsecured bail.

A lower court now has 60 days to decide whether he should get a new trial; prosecutors could also choose to drop the charges. Hart, who reportedly saw the rapper just hours before the big announcement was made, shared a photo of them sitting court side at an National Basketball Association game on Instagram. After spending almost five months out of his two-to- four-year sentence in prison, new reports confirm that the Philly native was granted bail on Tuesday afternoon (Apr. 24).

"To the Philadelphia District Attorney's office, I'm grateful for your commitment to justice - not only for my case, but for others that have been wrongfully jailed due to police misconduct", he said.

"I understand that many people of colour across the country don't have that luxury and I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues", Meek Mill said in Tuesday's statement.
