Meek Mill makes first public appearance after release from prison

Meek Mill Released From Prison Meek Mill is out of prison, and everyone wants him at the Sixers game

Meek Mill, who was sentenced after violating his probation on a drug and weapon's case regained his freedom on Monday. Hart called Mill his "brother for life" and T.I. said "this too shall pass" in November Instagram posts dedicated to their friend. The Philadelphia native, who was being held in a prison in Pennsylvania, was released on bail.

He performed the ceremonial pre-game ringing of the bell, which tends to feature a local person of influence ringing a Liberty Bell replica before the tip off and precedes every 76ers home game. After spending almost five months out of his two-to- four-year sentence in prison, new reports confirm that the Philly native was granted bail on Tuesday afternoon (Apr. 24).

He wrote: "On the way to the sixers game let's go! Now we can celebrate his release.We thank every individual that has supported and fought alongside meek every step of the way".

A team of lawyers and public relations consultants had waged an all-out battle to get Mill freed, leveling fierce criticism at the judge as a stream of high-powered figures and celebrities visited him in jail just hours before the Supreme Court ruling.

"I understand that many people of colour across the country don't have that luxury and I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues", Meek Mill said in Tuesday's statement.

He mentioned he would focus his consideration on getting his convictions overturned and look ahead to resuming his music profession. It also said prosecutors were not opposed to him being released, and sided with them. In granting Williams' bail, the Supreme Court, however, cited those concerns raised by District Attorney's Office and the prosecutors' statements that Williams should be granted PCRA relief. Shortly after, Meek's legal team claimed the judge and arresting police officer were both guilty of misconduct in the rapper's case. She said the court "has impartially and without prejudice presided over numerous proceedings in this matter since 2008". The sentence brought Philadelphia into the national spotlight over issues about inequalities in the criminal justice system, and it also sparked a very public feud between Williams and Brinkley, with Williams accusing the judge of being enamored with him and alleging that the FBI had investigated her handling of the case.
