Maybach Music Group’s Meek Mill has weighed in on hip-hop stars Bobby Shmurda and Rick Ross battling the legal system after publicized arrests.

Although he has kept in contact with Shmurda, Meek said he was unaware of how serious Ross’ charges are.

“I just been talking to Bobby, giving him words of encouragement. The press really made them into next-level monsters, but they were just kids in the hood doing their thing,” Meek said. “I don’t really know about [Ross’] charges, but you gotta fight them. All [Rick Ross] worried about is how the album doing. He gonna be alright.” (Hot 97)

According to reports this week, Ricky Rozay posted his $2 million bond Wednesday (July 1).

Ross’ bond hearing in Fayette County, GA just wrapped up
— and the judge ok’d his release once he paid a $2 million bond … which he scraped together from a few places:
– $1 million equity from the ex-Holyfield mansion he owns, and another GA property
– $500,000 surety bond (from a bail bondsman)
– $500k in cold hard cash

Ross’ attorney also promised his client would hand over the entire Holyfield property to the county … if he intimidates or threatens any witnesses. (TMZ)

Various musicians including Meek kept Ross’ name alive amid the arrest on social media last week.
