Meek Mill is already dealing with the repercussions of violating his probation stemming from a 2008 drug and gun case.
Page Six has learned the Philly rapper was supposed to travel in November to Hollywood, California for a potential role in 12 O’ Clock Boys, which is an upcoming remake by Will Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment.
The story is based on a group of West Baltimore illegal dirt bikers who were highlighted in an indie documentary that debuted in SXSW in 2013. Mill was selected to play the role of “Wheelie Wayne,” according to sources.
He missed the trip to LA for the film because he had to take a urine test as part of his probation just four days after a previous one.
He’s potentially going to miss another gig in Las Vegas. Due to travel restrictions until his court date on Feb. 5, he won’t be able to perform with Nicki Minaj at Drai’s. Sources say he would have made $140,000.
Lastly, Meek is also in consideration as a nominee for Best Original Song at the 2016 Oscars. “Fighting Stronger,” his collaboration with Jhené Aiko and Ludwig Goransson, was featured in Creed. If he wins, there’s a chance he won’t make it either if he’s sentenced to jail time.
