According to Deadline, Amazon and Jay-Z’s Roc Nation have just picked up a docuseries following the rapper’s recent incarceration and attempts at being exonerated.
Meek was sentenced to 2-4 years in prison for violating parole in 2017.

That’s exactly what the docuseries will focus on. The series will offer an up-close look at Meek’s fight to freedom, the inside workings of the criminal justice system, and even explores the rapper’s childhood and rise to fame.
“Not only will this documentary give viewers an unprecedented look at my life, but it will also allow me to use my public platform to highlight the need for criminal justice reform,” Meek said in a statement.
The untitled series is expected to premiere in 2019, exclusively on Amazon Prime.
