Z slams Meek Mill's 'heavy handed' prison sentence

08 November 2017

It's a somber day for hip-hop as Meek Mill fans have taken to social media to express their sadness and sympathy over the rapper's two to four years prison sentence he received for a parole violation.

When asked if he planned on appealing the sentence, Brian McMonagle, Meek Mill's defense attorney, responded, "You're goddamned right I am".

The 30-year-old was convicted of drug dealing and gun possession in 2008, and received a prison sentence of 11-to-23 months.

Meek Mill can't stay out of trouble... He was released in 2009 with a five-year probation agreement.

In a statement, JAY-Z, who runs Roc Nation, the management company that Mill is signed with, called the sentence "unjust and heavy handed".

Trump has criticized the deal as a source of the US trade deficit with South Korea, an argument officials there dismiss. It's a big problem for our country and the world, and we want to get it solved, ' he said.

Brinkley has worked with Mill since almost a decade ago, when the rapper was convicted and jailed for eight months and later placed on probation in 2008 for gun and drug charges. Prosecutors had recommended earlier that the rapper should not be sent back to prison, stating the fact that he has been off drugs since January and complied with most of the requirements for probation.

The ruling came after Williams was arrested at an airport in St. Louis, Missouri in March for allegedly assaulting two pedestrians, though the charges were later dropped.

In October, he pleaded guilty in Manhattan to reckless driving charges after he was arrested for carrying out stunts on a dirt bike on city streets. The judge who sentenced the rapper Monday was apparently fed up with having to deal with him.

The star was previously in jail for eight months and on probation for five years due to a 2008 conviction for gun and drug charges.
