In the last couple of days, Meek Mill has received an unwavering amount of support following his prison sentence for probation violation. Jay-Z, 50 Cent and several others have taken to social media to question the outcome of Meek’s case since he was sentenced to serve 2 to 4 years over charges that were eventually dropped.
Last night, during a live performance in Dallas, Jay-Z paused his the show to speak about Meek, saying:
“I gotta say something about a young man by the name of Meek Mill. He caught a charge when he was, like, 19. He’s 30 now. He’s been on probation for 11 years. F*cking 11 years. Probation for 11 years. Judge gave him two to four years because he got arrested for being on a bike and popping a f*cking wheelie.”
Hov previously the called the sentence “unjust and heavy-handed” in a statement posted to his Facebook page.
