Just one year ago, Meek was stuck behind bars serving a controversial sentence for a probation violation. After getting out in April 2018, he went on an impressive run that saw him reignite his rap career and become a vocal activist for criminal justice reform.
Meek’s post-prison success helped him win Comeback of the Year in HipHopDX’s 2018 Year-End Awards. Check out all of the winners here.
