Mill says many jailed people now counting on him

Meek Mill

"You know, Meek told me every day we talked, 'I just dream about the heli picking me up, '" Rubin said.

Mill was released following a five-month campaign to get him out of jail after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ordered he be released on bail.

"Supreme Court's decision on Meek Mill being released on bail is consistent with the position of the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office", the office said in a statement.

TMZ reports that after announcing that Meek Mill is free to leave prison, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court recommended that Judge Genece Brinkley recuse herself from his case.

Meek Mill, born Robert Rihmeek Williams, was sentenced in November 2017 to two to four years in prison on parole violations on a almost 10-year-old gun charge.

Minutes after the first playoff series win of his career, 76ers center Joel Embiid sought out Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill and embraced him.

"I'm in a daze, this is great, and unbelievable", he said.

Meek Mill has been granted bail.

"I still don't understand why he's still in jail after so much has been pointed out", Hart told reporters after the visit.

She added, "For far too long, we have turned a blind eye to this stark reality, and now we are all paying the social and economic price".

His original November 6 sentencing sparked nationwide protests, with allies saying his sentencing was an example of how the justice system treats people of color unfairly.

In a special part interview that aired Wednesday night, Meek spoke about his last 24 hours since being free, and the responsibility he carries to fight for others and spread awareness to criminal justice reform.

"In February 2012, MTV listed Meek Mill as the "#7 hottest MC" in their annual "Hottest MCs in the Game" list. Another person who's relieved about the star's release is JAY-Z.

One thing McCants hopes will result from the attention on Mill's case is more focus on the issues faced by the millions of Americans who are on probation. He's 30 now, he's been on probation for 11 years.

Mill is due back in court in front of Brinkley on June 18. "F***ing 11 years. Judge gave him two to four years because he got arrested for being on a bike and popping a f***ing wheelie".
