Yesterday, Meek Mill was sentenced to three to six months in jail for a probation violation. Forcing him to put his upcoming September album in jeopardy, as well as upcoming show appearances.
Rick Ross took to MTV and Rob Markman to drop a statement in support of his artist and friend:
“I created MMG years ago, my desire was to create a space where the most talented artists in the world could be nurtured and supported. With that came a commitment. I vowed to support these artist, through the good and the bad. Every individual signed to MMG is not just an artist, they are my family. And with family you ride, or you die.
Yesterday, my brother, Meek Mill ran into some unfortunate legal issues. It happens. However, his team, our team, will continue to execute Meek’s plan as close to schedule as possible. His album is coming.
We ask that the fans and the media continue to support him and his music during this time. He’ll be home soon. ‘Dreams Are Worth More Than Money,’ and family is worth more than Everything. MMG FOR LIFE.”
Meek evidently tried to appeal to Judge Genece E. Brinkley and Brinkley cited photos on social media and tweets that showed Meek not abiding to his probation requirements.
