Rapper Meek Mill freed after uproar over harsh term

  • Meek Mill

Following his release from prison on Tuesday, Meek Mill is speaking out for the first time. "Being in this position, I've got a lot of responsibility, I've got a lot of important people depending on me". I didn't feel free since I caught this case at the age of 19'.

After the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ordered the release of Meek Mill on Tuesday, overruling Philadelphia Judge Genece Brinkley who, throughout the case, had faced frequent claims of bias and requests to recuse herself, the rapper is preparing to take his message to the masses. Soon after his release, Meek made his first public appearance at a Philadelphia 76ers game, arriving by helicopter with the team's co-owner Michael Rubin. For example, if someone receives a 10- to 20-year prison sentence and is released after 10 years, the parole sentence has to last 10 years.

NBC Nightly News also interviewed district attorney Larry Krasner who previously filed a motion stating that his office had not opposed to granting bail to the rapper.

Check out Meek Mill speaking with Lester Holt below. I always had confidence it was going this way, but I didn't know when it would happen and I'd be free.

The sit-down will focus on the rapper's almost six-month stint behind bars, his release on bail, and his plans for the future. "There's a lot of light shredded on my situation".

'While the past five months have been a nightmare, the prayers, visits, calls, letters and rallies have helped me stay positive, ' Nicki Minaj's ex added. "This is about how he can be a symbolic change agent that is needed for major criminal justice reform". Other officers are expected to testify in court, Judge Brinkley notes, and the judge will decide her ruling based on what they have to say in the upcoming summer trial. He was also asked to ring the ceremonial Liberty Bell before the game's tipoff. In the meantime, I plan to work closely with my legal team to overturn this unwarranted conviction and look forward to reuniting with my family and resuming my music career.
