Philadelphia, PA – Shortly after Meek Mill began serving his house arrest sentence, a judge clarified the stipulation that the Philadelphia rapper could not release music during the 90-day term.

TMZ reports that Meek Mill can release music to “protect his brand” and must release it to non-revenue platforms such as Soundcloud and YouTube. The initial sentence said that he could not release music, a stipulation that he appealed.

The MMG rapper is preparing the release of Dreamchasers 4 and last week released a remix of Desiigner’s “Panda” and Drake’s “Summer Sixteen.”

Meek Mill appeals his house arrest sentence in a recent filing by his lawyer, Joe Tacopina, according to TMZ. He has been serving his time for one week.

The Philadelphia rapper says that he is seeking to have the demands that he can’t record new music or perform removed from the sentencing. He says he has a studio in his home and would like to continue making music.

Meek Mill was sentenced to 90 days house arrest last month for violating his probation. His girlfriend, Nicki Minaj, testified on his behalf.
