Some long overdue justice might be coming Meek Mill's way. According to TMZ, a judge has ordered for the release of documents that could prove that Meek's judge was biased during his probation violation case.
Meek and his lawyer, Joe Tacopina, allege that Judge Genece Brinkley developed a vendetta of sorts against the rapper after a conversation the two had in chambers in which he refused to fire his Roc Nation management and hire her friend Charlie Mack. Tacopina says that the conversation is on record and will prove that Brinkley showed inappropriate judicial conduct. The judge also allegedly asked Meek for a shoutout on a song, a very strange request to say the least.
These new documents could be Meek's key to freedom. If it was determined that the judge acted out of bias in her sentencing then it would become void. Since his shocking two-to-four year prison sentence in Nov. 2017 following a violation of his probation stemming from 2008 gun and drug charges, many have pointed out the unjust nature of the sentence and the criminal justice system in general.
Fans have shown massive support for the embattled artist. Rallies have been held in Philadelphia, Jay Z has penned an op-ed column addressing the unjust nature of the sentencing for the New York Times, and even former foe Drake called for Meek's freedom. Most recently, Meek's hometown team, the Philadelphia Eagles, have been using his legendary "Dreams and Nightmares" intro track as a rally song as they prepare for Super Bowl LII, a gesture that he says "really lifted [his] spirit."
