Meek Mill could be looking at spending at least two years in state prison, but he has lots of support in his corner. After the Philly native was sentenced to a maximum of four years for probation violation Monday (Nov. 6), T.I. took to Instagram with a few words of support.
The leader of the Hustle Gang showed his loyalty with a throwback pic alongside Meek and a little motivation. “This too shall pass,” Tip wrote. “You got this!!! God places the heaviest loads on the strongest backs. We got real love for [you] out here KING.”
Meek’s legal issues stems from a decade-old drug and gun case, and the seemingly harsh sentence has rehashed a social media debate about racial disparities within the justice system.
When you realize Meek got more jail time for riding a dirt bike then a cop would for shooting an unarmed African American.. pic.twitter.com/64LtHAUzv8

Obviously Meek does need to make better/smarter decisions but 2-4 years for something so trivial is SUPER OD.

Meek Mill gets 2-4 years in state prison for violating probation for a case he beat 10 years ago.
The Philly DA election is tomorrow. Take your ass to the pols.

Meek Mill’s experience with Philadelphia courts and probation is one of the great miscarriages of justice that no one takes seriously.
