Drake Says ‘Free Meek Mill’ During Australia Concert

X

Drake has officially ended his beef with Meek Mill. Drizzy showed love to the incarcerated Philly rapper during a recent concert performance in Melbourne, Australia.

Drake addressed his fans in the crowd during a brief intermission.

“I see you with the Adidas, three stripes,” he says to one fan. “I see you got the ‘Free Meek Mill’ T-shirt,” he tells another concertgoer. “Free Meek Mill too. You right.”

Drake is expressing support for the Dreamchaser who was recently sentenced to 2 to 4 years in prison.

Judge Genece Brinkley said her decision to sentence Meek to serve prison time was due to him mocking the number of chances she gave him. She reportedly said Meek had been “just thumbing your nose at me.”

When Meek is admitted into state prison, she said, “I’ll be done with you.”

Brinkley ordered Meek to serve 90 days on house arrest and six years probation in February for violating probation for a 2009 drug and gun conviction.

Meek Mill spent nearly five months in prison in 2014 for violating his probation. He was freed in December 2014 a month ahead of his expected Jan. 11, 2015 release date.

Meek’s probation violations came as a result of his involvement in a fight at a St. Louis airport in March, and recklessly driving his motorcycle in New York City.

Meek’s attorney Joe Tacopina told TMZ the Dreamchaser was ordered to complete community service to have his St. Louis airport case dismissed. Meek performed his community service at Philadelphia’s Veterans Association.

Meek took a deal that will get the reckless driving charge expunged from his record if he can go six months without getting arrested again, TMZ reports. He also has to perform 30 hours of community service. Meek is almost finished, as he already did 20 hours.

“This swift resolution vindicates Meek and clearly shows how outrageous the police department’s conduct is in this case,” Meek’s attorney Joe Tacopina told TMZ.

Meek was originally charged with a felony, but got it reduced to two misdemeanor charges.
