Meek Mill Is FINALLY Released From Prison! Read His First Tweets!

By | April 24, 2018

Meek Mill is officially a free man!

The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania decided to release the 30-year-old rapper from prison on Tuesday, overruling Judge Genece Brinkley‘s widely criticized decision to keep him behind bars.

Judge Brinkley denied Meek bail last week after prosecutors asked her to overturn his 2-4 year prison conviction because of a police corruption case involving Meek’s arresting officer, Reginald Graham.

Many were outraged by the judge’s decision — including, apparently, the justices of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, who released Meek with no bail, pending a hearing in about 60 days to possibly dismiss the conviction.

The justices refused to dismiss Judge Brinkley from the case, but said she “may opt to remove herself from presiding over this matter.”

The All Eyez on You rapper is counting his blessings following his release after months of fighting to get out from behind bars. He shared on Twitter:

We bet he’s hungry to get back to work!

Meek’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina — who previously called out Judge Brinkley for allegedly making inappropriate comments, like asking the rapper for a shout-out on a song he was doing with Nicki Minaj, during court proceedings — told TMZ that Meek was “unjustly convicted and should not have spent a single day in jail,” adding:

“Meek is excited to be reunited with his family, and we, along with Meek, intend to continue to shine the light on a justice system in need of reform to prevent any other citizen from being put through what Meek has endured.”

As we reported, the rapper was convicted last November for violating probation from his 2008 drug and weapons case after getting busted for a St. Louis airport fight and a reckless driving arrest.
