According to the latest news, Rapper Meek Mill is set to be released from prison after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ordered a judge to free him on bail. Several celebrities, communities, and the likes thereof came together many times supporting his release. From peaceful street protests, public figures speaking out, Meek's lawyer visiting the Breakfast Club Radio Show, and more, Meek Mill's release from prison was well supported. The Supreme Court has asked the judge to issue an immediate order for Mill's release on unsecured bail. There's been several discrepancies surrounding Meek's case and as the saying goes, where their is smoke, there is fire. I can only imagine the warmth Meek and his family is enduring at this time. What a testament this exemplifies when individuals come together in unity.
I’d like to thank God, my family, my friends, my attorneys, my team at Roc Nation including Jay Z, Desiree Perez, my good friend Michael Rubin, my fans, The Pennsylvania Supreme Court and all my public advocates for their love, support and encouragement during this difficult time. While the past five months have been a nightmare, the prayers, visits, calls, letters and rallies have helped me stay positive. 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. Although I’m blessed to have the resources to fight this unjust situation, I understand that many people of color across the country don’t have that luxury and I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues. In the meantime, I plan to work closely with my legal team to overturn this unwarranted conviction and look forward to reuniting with my family and resuming my music career.
