On Monday, a Philadelphia judge didn’t exactly throw the book at the “Self Made” rapper, but the court did hand down a stiff sentence. Mill will serve between two and four years behind bars for violation of his probation.
TMZ reports “Meek was in a Philadelphia court Monday when the judge ruled he’d violated probation from his 2009 drug and weapons case by getting busted for a St. Louis airport fight … and his reckless driving arrest in NYC.” TMZ continues saying, “Even though both cases were dropped, the judge said the arrests alone were violations — and gave Meek 2 to 4 years in prison. He was immediately remanded into custody. ”
Mill, whose real name is Robert Williams, has a long history of being on the wrong side of the law going back to his first violation of illegal possession of a firearm and assaulting a police officer when he was only 18. In 2008, Mill was convicted of drug dealing and other charges which led to a sentence of 11 months to almost two years behind bars. He ending being released the following year and was placed on five years parole which he was found guilty of violating in 2012 and 2013 but managed to get off lightly with having his travel permit revoked, mandatory etiquette classes and house arrest.
The 30-year old Philly native has had his share of problems outside the court room as well including some pretty well publicized beefs with other celebs , The Game, Kendrick Lamar and Cassidy. A disagreement with Canadian singer Drake spilled from social media onto the tracks of one of Drake’s albums. Mill called out Drake on Twitter for not writing his own lyrics but relying on a ghostwriter for his lyrics. Drake never replied to Mill on Twitter, but in his track “Charged Up” dissed and dismissed Mill referencing his low album sales and has been status.
Mill’s current issues are a lot more serious than a few war of words with other artists. Since he’s served time before and has been so lax in observing his probation, it seems the judge is putting down a firm foot with sending Mill to state prison this time.
