After all the Twitter beefs with fellow rappers, and the infamous lyrical dragging by Drake, it’s nice to see that there are still people on Team Meek Mill.
On Tuesday (July 26), the Philadelphia native was shown some serious love from his hometown when fans hit the streets to protest his 12-year probation.

Thank you all so much for the coverage of our protest efforts. Much obliged to you all. Please continue to post about this so that we can get Meek off of a 12 year long, illegally run probation. Since this is happening to him it let’s you know exactly what’s happening to other Black and Brown people without his means in the Criminal Justice System in Philly EVERYDAY. That’s why we want him off probation NOW he serves as an example of egregious probation abuse that is happening to thousands of people in Philadelphia and millions of people in this country.
Meek Mill was reportedly arrested on gun charges in 2008 and served 18 months in jail before being released for five years of probation. He was placed on a 90-day house arrest earlier this year for failing to follow the guidelines of his probation when he took a trip to Los Angeles with girlfriend Nicki Minaj. Another consequence of the violation was the addition of six more years to his probation, which is where the outrage of his fans stems.
