Jay-Z Calls Meek Mill's Prison Sentence 'Unjust And Heavy Handed'

Photo A Philadelphia judge on Monday sentenced the rapper Meek Mill to two to four years in prison.

A judge handed down the heavy sentencing on Monday after ruling that Meek Mill violated his probation when he got arrested twice this year.

According to Tacopina, during a meeting in her chambers a year ago, Brinkley suggested that Meek Mill remake Boyz II Men's "On Bended Knee" and give her a shoutout in his song.

He was sentenced between 11 and 23 months in prison, but was released in early 2009 under a five-year parole agreement.

Charges from both incidents were eventually dismissed, but that didn't stop the judge from sending him to prison.

Brinkley cited the reasons behind her decision which were a failed drug test and Mill's failure to comply with a court order restricting his travel.

Giants defense a no-show in 51-17 loss to Rams
The Giants are one of three teams who are winless at home this season. "Obviously, we had some big turnovers in the first half". And yet, a screen pass from Jared Goff turned L.A. wideout Robert Woods into a hot knife, and the Giants' defense just melted.


Brinkley has worked with Mill since almost a decade ago, when the rapper was convicted and jailed for eight months and later placed on probation in 2008 for gun and drug charges.

Mill, whose most recent album, "Wins and Losses", reached number three on the U.S. album chart this year, was sentenced over a case dating from when the 30-year-old was a teenager.

JAY-Z wasn't the only artist to comment on Mill's sentence. Mill was also dated the singer-songwriter Nicki Minaj, which ended this year.

Meek Mill's lawyer told the Inquirer the rapper will appeal his latest sentence, as well he should.

Raised by his mother in Philadelphia after his father was killed, the rapper born as Robert Williams was put on probation after a 2005 arrest on drug and gun possession charges. In October, he pleaded guilty to reckless driving after a video was posted of him doing wheelies on a dirt bike in New York City.
