The judge who sentenced Meek Mill to 2 to 4 years in prison last week is being investigated by the FBI.
Judge Genece Brinkley is reportedly being investigated for potential relationships she has in Philadelphia including one with local music mogul Charlie Mack, who worked with Meek early in his career.
According to Page Six, the FBI has been monitoring the Meek proceedings since 2016 and are looking into a possible extortion demand. The report claims a source informed them that “Mack had previously told Meek how he ‘knows the judge and he could help him with his case.’”
Mack denied the allegations insisting he has no relationship with Brinkley: “I’ve spent more time talking to you than I ever talked to the judge,” he told the outlet. “There is no conspiracy, Meek is an old friend of 30-plus years.”
Meek’s attorney Joe Tacopina claimed Brinkley showed “enormous bias” by repeatedly asking the rapper to leave Roc Nation and sign with Mack. Tacopina also claims Brinkley once asked Meek to remix a Boyz II Men song and his refusal led to the harsh sentencing.
Since Meek’s conviction, Rick Ross, and several fans took to the streets of Philly to rally in support.
