Rick Ross Comments On Meek Mill's Incarceration

Rick Ross asks for support for Meek Mill, gives an update on "Dreams Worth More Than Money."

Days after it was revealed that Maybach Music Group rapper Meek Mill would be serving up to six months in jail, Rick Ross has finally spoken out on the matter. According to HotNewHipHop.com, the Miami rapper did so via a statement released over the weekend.

In his statement, Ross touched on support for his artists and says Meek Mill ran into “unfortunate legal issues.” In regards to Meek’s second studio album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, Ross says they’ll try and continue on schedule for the project.

“I created MMG years ago, my desire was to create a space where the most talented artists in the world could be nurtured and supported,” he said in the statement. “With that came a commitment. I vowed to support these artist, through the good and the bad. Every individual signed to MMG is not just an artist, they are my family. And with family you ride, or you die. Yesterday, my brother, Meek Mill ran into some unfortunate legal issues. It happens. However, his team, our team, will continue to execute Meek’s plan as close to schedule as possible. His album is coming. We ask that the fans and the media continue to support him and his music during this time. He’ll be home soon. ‘Dreams Are Worth More Than Money’, and family is worth more than Everything. MMG FOR LIFE.”

Meek’s recent incarceration has even spawned a #FreeMeekMill campaign on social media with hundreds of fans petitioning for his release.

Last week, it was reported that the Philly lyricist was sentenced to three to six months in jail due to a possible probation violation, which may have stemmed from the rapper holding a gun in a picture posted on Instagram days ago.

    "cut his losses by signing French Montana who had one of the biggest flops on interscope in recent memory?" Yes Interscope did right because "Excuse My French" is at 175,000 with a platinum single "POP That" while "Animal Ambishon" is at 85,000 with no singles that charted in the Top 200.

      Wale has the Gold album and Platinum singles so of course his bread is longer than Meek but Wale was raised Ina two parent homeand went to an HBCU for a short period of time so he is a diffrent breed than the kid from a broken home who was rapping on street corners with nappy braids and catching gun charges. Poor Meek, this couldnt have happened at a worst time, they need to delay the release of the album untill he is free and ale to promote it.

    The young Bul needs to grow up and behave like a man that "values his freedom and if not at least until his probation is over" The problem is he's playing a role right now where he's supposed to be this gangsta bad ass with all this money and clout. In real life, bad decisions have consequences. Rappers see arrests and jail time as sort of a publicity stunt. Meek should grow the fuck up, but it's hard to do that when he doesn't realize what he's doing is silly shit. Ross isn't his daddy. He can't hold his hand.

    • Anonymous

      Meek is still in his twenties, you give a kid from the hood a million dollars and he might not know how to act but he can use this setback as an opportunity to reflect on his actions and move forward with a better indestanding on how to maintain his freedom.

      Mill will spend at least three months in prison and possibly the full six. When he gets out, he will have to start a new five-year period of probation. "Brinkley warned him not to make further concert plans without court approval. When Mill said his schedule was "now booked up till December," Brinkley cut him off. "I don't want to hear it, I don't care about it," the judge said. Mill has been a regular in court for nearly two years, disputing the terms of his probation with Philadelphia probation officers and trying Brinkley's patience as she worked to accommodate his schedule." "They also showed a photo of Mill, posing with four men, holding what appeared to be a semiautomatic pistol - Silver said it was a prop during a photo shoot - and Mill's insulting comments about DeSantis and Underwood on Twitter, some written while he was in the probation office. DeSantis said one tweet referred to her as a "racist [expletive]" and attacked Underwood, who is African American, as being jealous that one of her probationers had become a famous and wealthy entertainer."

      Parole/Probation is foul, I did 5 years probation and it was hell, based on your charges you have to adhere to a shitload of "conditions" and if you violate those conditions they can give you a violation that requires jail time. For example of you have a gun/drug charge you can't be around any guns, if you have a DUI you can't be in bars, and some conditions say you can't be around felons or gangmembers. The mucked up part is that you have to be in FULL compliance to whatever your PO instructs you to do or else they can violate you for non compliance which means they can basically violate you for missing an appointment, cussin them out or not telling them in advance that you are leaving the state. Based on the articles I read Meek was in non-compliance for multiple infractions; he didn't report as scheduled, and his so called "behavior" was suspect so she violated him......it also didn't help that he called the DA a racist, sued the city and threatened Louie V Gutta on Twitter. The young Bul needs to grow up and behave like a man that values his freedom and if not at least until his probation is over.
