  • Meek Mill reportedly sentenced to 2 years in jail

Meek's legal issues continued in March, when he was arrested for fighting in the Philadelphia airport (The charges were dropped when he agreed to perform community service).

In a post on Facebook, the kingpin rapper wrote, "The sentence handed down by the Judge - against the recommendation of the Assistant District Attorney and Probation Officer - is unjust and heavy handed".

Jay's not alone in thinking the sentence is especially harsh, considering Meek's violation came as a result of two arrests for charges that were eventually dropped, and that his parole was for a crime that occurred nearly 10 years ago.

The 30-year-old was convicted of drug dealing and gun possession in 2008, and received a prison sentence of 11-to-23 months.

Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley imposed the sentence on Mill after he was twice arrested this year.

Mill's lawyer has vowed to appeal. But probation violations resulted in five more months in prison in 2013 and an extension of his probation.

Posting a picture of the pair on Instagram, Kevin wrote: "Praying for my brother @meekmill right now".

Jay Z (L) and Meek Mill. God sometimes puts the toughest battles on his strongest soldiers. My brother for life... "This storm will pass.Stay strong & keep your head up".

So why is Meek being incarcerated yet again on a ludicrous sentence given the nature of his violations? It was during this period that the former Grand Hustle hopeful (and protégé of DJ Drama and T.I.) found the fast-track with Rick Ross and Maybach. We got real love for u out here KING.

However, a judge said both arrests were a breach of his probation.

We're told the judge had suggested to Meek - during a meeting in chambers a year ago - he do a remake of the Boyz II Men hit, "On Bended Knee". and give her, the judge, a shout-out.
