Meek Mill Will Reportedly Remain In Jail Until September

A lawyer for Meek Mill says that two requests for emergency hearings for the rapper have been denied.

It appears that Philly rapper Meek Mill will remain in jail until at least September. According to a news report from Philly.com, one of the Maybach Music Group musician’s lawyers, Christopher Warren, requested an emergency hearing, which was later rejected by the judge who sentenced Meek.

Warren revealed to Philly.com that he’s unaware of why exactly the rapper was jailed in the first place.

"All I'm asking for is a hearing to learn why [his jailing] is constitutional and they won't even give me that," Warren said.

Although Warren’s requests were turned down, the lawyer says he now plans on filing a writ of mandamus. The writ of mandamus is an order, which asks that a higher court demand that the judge in the matter, Judge Genece Brinkley, hold an emergency hearing for Meek.

"The last thing I want to do is go running to another judge to tell another judge what to do. But we have no choice," the lawyer said.

Warren plans on filing the order on Monday (July 21).

Meek Mill was arrested earlier this month over what was reportedly his behavior while on probation, he previously posed with a gun in a picture posted on Instagram, and was sentenced to three to six months in jail.

Days after Meek’s arrest, Maybach Music Group founder Rick Ross issued a statement on the matter.

“Yesterday, my brother, Meek Mill ran into some unfortunate legal issues,” Ross said in the second half of his statement. “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.”

    this might actually help his album sales. he needs all the publicity he can get this time out. i remember in 2012 he had more buzz than kendrick and then got outsold 5x over after saying he was going to go plat 1st week. hopefully he can at least pull together another dope intro thats all D&N was good for.

      first off thats some BS that his lawyers is saying, theres no way to prove it was a video prop or that it was real... second of all it was for so much more than the gun pic, that seemed like the final straw though.

    Shame he can't stay in jail for life. It would be one less shitty rapper to hear about.

    Meek is so dumb he need's advance notice to tell him that slandering his probation officer, the district attorney and the judge as well as posing for pictures holding guns is a violation of his probation. Brinkley trolling on hhdx. How does ot feel to lock up an mmg member yet Give special treatment to g unit? I swear 50 was beating whites up yet the judge encouraged him while meek playing with a gun gets him in jail.

      thats great but what does that have to do with Meek Mill violating his parole and not being able to do his time like everyone else? why does he need an emergency hearing after 1 week?

    • Anonymous

      G Unit are worshipped by whites because of their connection to Emienem and 50 is basically a white guy in blackface.

      huh? how did g-unit get special treatment when did they ever have court in philly?

    Gets released a week before, or a week after album drops... Sales spike a bit.. The end

    new album title is Cream Chasers since he's chasing that man cream in jail with koolaid.

  • Not Impressed

    This might be Meek Mill's last album. This second one wasn't going to sell anyway, but now that's he's locked up, it will do even less than what it was supposed to do. I predict sales a little over 20K (if he's lucky) then no more albums for Meek. He's always in trouble and he doesn't sell, so there's no reason to keep him around. It's a shame though, if he were just a little more humble, like he was when he started, this shit wouldn't keep happening to him. I'm not impressed

      I doubt he will flop like 50 Centt

      Meek is a great artist. The judge went to what school for law again??? I'm not impressed

      cmon he gonna do better than that his last one sold 160k first week. prison might actually make people care more as the new album had no buzz or decent singles yet.

    Maybach O got arrested this week for unpaid traffic tickets and said all the C.O.'s showed him love (due to his affiliation with Officer Ricky).

    Ross needs to bring a portable studio to the prison parking lot. He will be able to hear Meek scream rapping from the showers.

    "Defense lawyers for Meek intend to argue that Meek didnt receive advance notice of the previous infractions. " Meek is so dumb he need's advance notice to tell him that slandering his probation officer, the district attorney and the judge as well as posing for pictures holding guns is a violation of his probation.

    Rumor has it at night you can hear him screaming for 50 miles in any direction from the jailhouse.

    Emergency hearing? LOL. It's only been a week and his lawyers are desperately trying to get him out... sounds like Meek can't handle the time. If you violate probation do your time like everyone else! Stop trying to get special treatment cause you have a lil paper and fame.
