Meek Mill

Meek Mill got six months in jail in July, and despite asking for an early release, he will remain jailed until at least October 11th, reports NBC Philadelphia.

The Philly rapper (real name: Robert Williams) appeared before a judge Monday (Aug. 18), requesting to be released in order to resume his career and support his son and 30-person entourage. Instead, the judge ordered that he to take anger management classes for what prosecutors called a parole office “tantrum” over travel restrictions, as well as a Twitter rant aimed at his parole officer and prosecutor. She also ordered him to take a parenting class.

Meek has been on probation for five years, as a result of a 2009 drug and gun case conviction, for which he served about a year of house arrest. During this time, he’s had issues with his probation.

The rapper failed a drug test in 2014 and featured a gun in a music video this year — both drawing concern from probation. His attorney explains that he had a prescription for the OxyContin after an injury and that the weapon used in the video was a water pistol, not an actual gun.

In July, Meek Mill was sentenced to three-to-six months in jail.
