Meek Mill was granted bail on Tuesday following the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s order that the rapper be released from prison.
Last week, Philadelphia’s district attorney’s office argued that Mill’s 2008 conviction on drug and firearm charges should be overturned, and questioned the credibility of his arresting officer.
Mill said in a statement on Tuesday:
“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.”
Michael Rubin, co-owner of the Philadelphia 76ers and one of Meek’s longtime friends, told Page Six that the rapper is attending the team’s game on Tuesday night. Rubin has admirable follow-through.
Kanye West has, by certain metrics, been getting a lot of shit done lately. He’s tweeting, he’s tweeting about stuff he’s doing or will be doing, and he’s reportedly parting ways with much of his management team, including several lawyers and his manager, Scooter Braun.
