Meek will finally be released from prison today, Tuesday, April 24th. This news comes after it was revealed the officer who arrested him back in 2007 was on a secret DA’s list of allegedly corrupt cops.
After five months behind bars, the Philedelpiha rapper was able to express his appreciation for the outstanding support he received from his fans, and peers regarding his harsh sentencing.
“I’d like to thank God, my family, my friends, my attorneys, my team at Roc Nation including Jay Z, Desiree Perez, my good friend Michael Rubin, my fans, The Pennsylvania Supreme Court and all my public advocates for their love, support and encouragement during this difficult time. While the past five months have been a nightmare, the prayers, visits, calls, letters and rallies have helped me stay positive."
Michael Rubin, owner of the Philadelphia 76ers and longtime friend of Meek will be picking Meek up from prision.
