UPDATE: According to NBC Philadelphia, Meek Mill may remain behind bars until Oct. 11.
Meek Mill’s appeal has been rejected.
After denying his lawyer’s request for an emergency hearing last month, Judge Genese Brinkley has made the decision to keep the Philly rapper in jail so he will be forced to attend anger management counseling.
On July 11, Judge Brinkley sentenced Meek to three to six months in prison for probation violation stemming from a 2009 drug and gun case. Prosecutors accused the rapper of testing positive for a painkiller and used a gun in a music video.
Today, the MMG rapper apologized for his behavior. His attorneys argued that he had not committed any new offenses in five years.
The Dreamchasers CEO’s sophomore album, Dreams Worth More Than Money is slated to drop Sept. 9.
