Meek is gathering huge support.
Rick Ross lead a huge crowd of Meek Mill fans who gathered outside of the Criminal Justice Center in Philadelphia in support of the imprisoned rapper.
The MMG boss gave a speech to the large crowd, who held up banners reading “#Rally4Meek” and chanting “Free Meek Mill”.
“I’m here to support my brother Meek Mill,” began Rick Ross. “If it takes Meek Mill to draw this attention, then it’s going to speak for so many others."
He then continued to deliver a speech to the crowd.
In a separate video, fans can be seen reciting Meek Mill’s song ‘Intro’ from his debut album ‘Dreams And Nightmares’.

Meanwhile, Meek Mill is expected to appeal his current 2-4 year prison sentence.
According to Page Six, the judge who sent Meek to jail is now being investigated by the FBI.
Meek Mill’s lawyer Joe Tacopina previously claimed that she requested for him to make a remix of Boyz II Men’s song ‘On Bended Knee’ and include a shout-out to her.
He also claimed that the judge bizarrely asked Meek Mill to leave his current Roc Nation management to sign with her friend.
So far Meek Mill has received support from some of the biggest names in Hip-Hop including JAY-Z, 50 Cent, TI, Rick Ross, YG and more.
