Rick Ross, Julius Erving & Others Rally for Meek Mill in Philadelphia

  • A rally protesting rapper Meek Mill's imprisonment is set for 5 p.m. Monday at the Criminal Justice Center

Many are outraged after learning Meek's sentence came as a result of two arrests for incidents in which charges were eventually dropped, and the stiff sentence has led many to speak out in support of Meek. "Please know that I am devoted to his future and to making sure that he accomplishes the goals that you have set forth for him". I spoke to this man several times when he had to do some time before- REAL SHIT- and just like I told him before, "sometimes people do shit to you just to make you feel like you are NOT special but in turn they end up treating you worse than everybody else". "I truly believe that such a sentence would destroy his future".

According to Digital Music News, members of the Philadelphia Eagles including mention Kevin Hart, Julius "Dr, J" Erving, and Pennsylvania state representative Jordan Harris also turned up at the demonstration.

Meanwhile, a crowd of demonstrators took to the streets and rallied for Mill outside of Philadelphia's Criminal Justice Center on Monday evening. "Sadly there are Black folks going through the same radicalized injustice (s) within the justice system that Meek Mill has experienced for over a decade EVERY SINGLE DAY", he wrote. "We stand for justice", read a poster for the rally tweeted by the Roots' Tariq Trotter, also known as Black Thought. Jay Z has chimed in on the sentence, calling it "unjust and heavy handed".

The rapper's lawyer, Joe Tacopina, says he plans to file a motion to have Brinkley removed from the case.

Judge Genece Brinkley is reportedly being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for possible relationships she might have in Philly - including to a local music mogul she allegedly asked Meek to sign with - as well as a possible "extortionate demand". according to the New York Post.
