Meek Mill Says 'I Ain't Free' Despite Prison Release

Adjust Comment Print

Meek Mill is a free man, but the rapper has more legal headaches to deal with in the future. "I've got a lot of important people depending on me, and not talking about the people, the public officials, I'm talking about the men that's depending on me that are going through the same thing I'm going through". "No I don't feel free", he says.

The rapper was released from prison this week after the Philadelphia Supreme Court issued an order overruling a previous decision by Judge Genece E. Brinkley, who had denied Mill's bail last week. He was picked up by Philadelphia 76ers owner, Micheal Rubin and flown by helicopter to the 76ers game that ended up being the series victor over the Miami Heat on Tuesday.

In an op-ed a year ago for The New York Times, Jay-Z said that Mill's case was "just one example of how our criminal justice system entraps and harasses hundreds of thousands of black people every day". He spoke with NBC Nightly News host Lester Holt shortly after his release for a soon-to-be-aired "Dateline" NBC special, where he revealed his thoughts about being out of jail.

Robert Rihmeek Williams, 30, more commonly known as Meek Mill has been released from prison. "I ain't feel free since I caught this case at the age of 19, I'm 30 now". Last November, the rapper was arrested for violating probations over drug and gun possession charges that were made nearly ten years ago, when Mill was only 21.

The ruling came after prosecutors said they agreed with his lawyers that he should get a new trial because of questions raised about the arresting officer.

Larry Krasner, the District Attorney of Philadelphia, also believes Meek's original conviction may be overturned due to a corruption scandal. He even got to ring the bell.
