Maybach Music Group’s Meek Mill might not be behind bars but he’s still facing an uphill battle. New reports claim the Dreamchasers boss did not receive the green light to have his probation violation judge replaced.
According to reports, Meek learned his case’s fate Wednesday (May 30) morning.
A separate state court judge in Philly denied Meek’s bid to strip his pending case away from Judge Genece Brinkley, saying he couldn’t overrule another judge of equal standing and adding “I wear the same robe as she does.” It’s interesting though — Meek’s legal team presented a new argument in court by alleging that Brinkley had claimed in a civil lawsuit that she’d suffered a head injury … and was disabled and incapacitated. The suit is from an accident in 2016 that Brinkley was in — with the judge suing a woman who was also allegedly involved. She claims she suffered “severe head trauma.” (TMZ)
Meek’s legal muscle Joe Tacopina has since issued a statement on the judge situation.
“Judge Tucker thoughtfully considered our application to reassign this case to Judge Woods-Skipper, so that it is treated the same as the 2,000 other PCRA petitions that have come before it. While he ultimately ruled that he did not believe he had the authority to do so, we respectfully disagree and will immediately ask the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to reassign the case.” (Complex)
A few days ago, Meek Mill hinted at the possibility of once again collaborating with former rap foe Drake following their 2015 feud.
“It’s possible. Everything is possible. I don’t have hate towards him, and I don’t believe he has hate towards me. When I was in that situation, I seen in the media, he said ‘Free Meek Mill.’ That’s when I was at my down point when I don’t have anything going on with music. Before we had a little rap issue. I knew him as a person and he supported and that goes for anybody.” (Hot 97)
Last month, Meek’s ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj addressed getting caught in-between his feud with her Young Money labelmate.
“It was one of the hardest parts of my career to date – ever,” Nicki said when asked about getting stuck in-between the 2015 feud. “At the time, I did love both of them. I couldn’t erase the love I had for my team. But I also couldn’t speak out. I couldn’t really say much.” (Beats 1)
