Today in Hip-Hop: Meek Mill Leaves Prison for Probation Violation After Serving Five Months
On this day, Dec. 2, in hip-hop history...
In July of that year, the Dreamchasers MC was given three to six months behind bars after a judge revoked his probation as a result of behavior that was deemed "questionable" by the District Attorney.
The jail stint threw a wrench in the release of Meek's album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, which was supposed to drop in September, but ended up having to be pushed back.
A couple days before Meek's release, label boss Rick Ross broke the news he would be coming home soon. "You know, the the big homie, he was sentenced to six months off the rip," Ross told Hot 97. "We done got our hopes up a couple of times so I said I wasn't going to feed into that again. When he come home, he come home. At worst it won't be more than a month at this point, you know what I mean? So we just ready for the big homie to get to the crib. Hopefully, he can spend the holidays with us, you know what I mean, and kick 2015 off."
