"This guy was unjustly convicted 10 years ago by a lying and corrupt cop, who was subsequently named a lying and corrupt cop by both the FBI and District Attorney. Then [he had] a judge who could not be fair and impartial, but really had to go to extremes to try to extract punishment from Meek to take this to a different level of unprofessionalism and a legal vendetta.”

Following the news, artists from the Hip-Hop and R&B world showed their support for Meek Mill on social media.
