Meek Mill was back in a Philadelphia court today for his probation violation case, where a judge sentenced him to house arrest and then six months of probation. This current case against Meek dates back to December when a judge ruled that he violated the travel restrictions that were laid as part of his ongoing probation. After the initial ruling, Meek was ordered to stay in Philadelphia and was banned from performing, even if it was in his hometown.
This violation could have resulted in jail time for Meek, but it seems that he did enough to convince the judge not to send him back. Meek previously spent months in jail in 2014 because of a similar violation. Meek will have to wear an ankle monitor while under house arrest for the next 90 days, and he still will not be able to perform at all. According to TMZ, Meek will not be able to work during his house arrests, which also means he won't be able to drop any mixtapes or music. So don't expect Dreamchasers 4 in the next three months.
Meek will start his house arrest on March 1, and then a judge will determine what he's allowed to do going forward. According to CBS Philly, the judge in the case spoke to Meek and Nicki Minaj privately about what he can do forward to stay out of trouble. While it sounds like the judge is still skeptical of what will happen, Meek's legal team relayed over and over again that he's turning his life around with Nicki. Over the past month, Meek has released two short EPs, but it's unclear what this setback will do for his immediate career going forward. We'll continue to update this story as more details become available.
