Bad news for Meek Mill this morning, as TMZ is reporting that the Philadelphia rapper could be heading back to prison. The report states that Meek could potentially have his probation revoked because he took a trip outside of Philly without permission.
A judge reportedly requested that Meek appear in court this morning regarding the issue, and it could land him back in prison where he spent several months last year. Nothing is confirmed, but TMZ mentions that Meek may have not had permission from the court to attend the AMAs last month. Meek posted on Instagram about the latest setback, and said that it could be his last post for awhile. Read his full message below. We'll continue to update this story as it develops.
I'm actually fighting for my life and freedom ... Something I've been going thru from a case I caught at 19 years old and been on probation since... I am 28 now ...

But if you are for me prayers up and wish me the best! Thank you to everybody that ever supported and I will continue to b great! If this is my last post know I will continue to remain strong and grow to b a better man and set a example for every minority with a dream that anything is possible! Trials and tribulations and chances makes chances & never lose faith! No matter how things go. PRAYERS UP!! 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
