Meek Mill Released From Prison, Hip-Hop Community Welcomes Him Home
It's official. Meek Mill is finally home after spending five months in jail for violating parole.
The Maybach Music Group artist would have been in jail until Jan. 11 if the judge did not let him out early today (Dec. 2). Although he's a free man, his mobility is quite limited. The 'Levels' rapper will have to stay in the Philadelphia area and do an undisclosed amount of community service and attend anger management classes. Mill is also forbidden to tour outside of his city until he completes his counseling.
Prior to his incarceration, the MC was set to release his second album, 'Dreams Worth More Money.' However, the effort was postponed once he was put behind bars. A new album release date has yet to be announced.
While we wait for him to make a formal announcement about his release and new music, the Philly spitfire shared a few words on Twitter. He tweeted a video of fans doing the Shmoney Dance in celebration of his return home. Meanwhile, fellow rappers from the hip-hop community went on Twitter to welcome home Meek Mill.
