Maybach Music Group’s Meek Mill is yearning to mingle with fellow prisoners. New reports claim the hip-hop star is currently in solitary for nearly 24 hours a day and it’s messing his head up.
According to reports, Meek Mill’s legal muscle has taken legal action to get him in general population.
Meek’s legal team wants the judge to buy into the current thinking … that solitary insidiously destroys the psyche. They also say it’s severely inhibiting Meek’s creativity. He’s writing and exercising a lot, but it’s taking its toll. We’re told Meek believes he’ll do fine in G.P. because he’s well respected on the streets and has given back a lot since he’s become a celeb. (TMZ)
Last weekend, comedian Kevin Hart shared a serious video message about Meek’s situation.
“Um, happy Saturday, people. I’m just taking a second to speak on my friend Meek Mill’s situation and try to bring as much attention to it as I can and asking you guys to go to Justice4Meek.com. Sign the petition, we’re trying to get this sentence re-evaluated. I mean, look, it’s just not fair. Look, the guy’s not perfect. He’s done some things in his past life and he’s been on probation for a large part of that past life and the sentencing he’s getting is stupid.”
Last week, Meek’s lawyer Joe Tacopina singled out the judge for throwing down a multi-year prison sentence.
According to Tacopina, Meek and the the judge are from the same part of Philly and know some of the same people. Tacopina says the judge suggested to Meek — during a meeting in chambers last year — he do a remake of Boyz II Men’s, “On Bended Knee” … and give her, the judge, a shout-out. Meek thought she was kidding and laughed. Tacopina claims she said, “I’m not kidding,” and when Meek refused to do it, she replied … “Okay, suit yourself.” (TMZ)
Over the past few days, everyone from JAY-Z to Rick Ross have rallied for Meek’s freedom.
