Watch Protesters Rap 'Dreams and Nightmares' at 'Free Meek' Rally in Philadelphia

Watch Protesters Rap 'Dreams and Nightmares' at 'Free Meek' Rally in Philadelphia

Mill will also be applying to the Pennsylvania's Board of Pardons, though since that process can take years, that might not help him quickly enough. By the next day, Justice League NYC was working in collaboration with Roc Nation, Cut50 as well as artists, activists, legal scholars and community leaders to see how we could use this gross miscarriage of justice to elevate this story to shine a bright light on the systemic over-incarceration and over-criminalization of people of color, especially young Black men.

The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback became a symbol of resistance against racial bias in policing after he took a knee during the National Anthem previous year to protest police brutality.

Mill is now in jail under solitary confinement. This requires more than just gradual reform in laws-It requires a swift overhaul.

At the rally were Meek's MMG comrade Rick Ross, Philly native PnB Rock, Macklemore, NBA Hall-of-Famer Julius "Dr. J" Erving (Philadelphia 76ers), and the Philadelphia Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins, who also spoke at the event.

Williams, 30, is in the state prison at Camp Hill after being sentenced to two to four years in prison for violating his probation in a 2008 drug and gun case. The sentence has been criticized for its length and the credibility of claims he violated his probation.

The judge who sentenced rapper Meek Mill to prison last week, is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, reports say. In an interview with Billboard, Meek's attorney Joseph Tacopina held nothing back when discussing his client's sentence and believed Judge Brinkley's sentence "was an enormously grave mischaracter of justice".

Carmen Perez: The biggest incongruities of this case is that this young man who has worked so hard on behalf of his community, getting clean and contributing back - has had so-called "probation offenses" dogging him for more than 10 years. "JAY-Z is out there going absolutely wild", he continued.

"She's enamored with him", Tacopina tells Billboard.

On Monday evening (Nov. 13), Meek Mill supporters, athletes, and peers flocked to the Criminal Justice Center in Philadelphia to protest the embattled rapper's recent sentencing.

Another way forward is filing an application for the state's Board of Pardons, a political avenue that Tacopina said they also plan to pursue. Mill is signed to Ross' Maybach Music Group.
