Lil Durk is upset with recent incarceration of Meek Mill. Durk took to social media to call for the Philly rapper’s freedom.
Durk posted a photo of himself in the studio onto IG with a caption, reading, “I need all the rappers who talk to the streets step it up we just took a L #FreeMeek.”
On Twitter, Durk wrote, “That system don’t love nobody #freeMEEK.”

Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley sentenced the Dreamchaser to two to four years in state prison for violating his probation on Monday.
Brinkley said her decision to sentence Meek was due to him mocking the number of chances she gave him, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. 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.
