Meek Mill Filed Papers Asking to Be Released From Prison
Is Meek Mill on his way to becoming a free man?
A week after Meek Mill was sentenced to two to four years, the rapper has filed a motion asking to be released from prison and for his ten-year probation to be suspended.
This new development comes after days of criticism against the judge who gave out the harsh sentence, Genece Brinkley. She sentenced the rapper because he violated his probation.

But according to Meek Mill's lawyer Joe Tacopina, Brinkley has a vendetta against the rapper. Tacopina claims that the judge has said some bizarre things in the past. (Tacopina claims she once asked Meek to remake a Boyz II Men song.)
Recently, it's been reported that the FBI is now investigating Judge Brinkley for some of her behavior.

According to Billboard, the complaint details the instances where they felt like Judge Brinkley brought up her personal opinion in official rulings. The filing also mentions how the judge ruled against the recommendation of his probation officer, who said that Meek "actively participated in an effort towards behavioral change."
On Monday, there was a rally in Philadelphia for Meek Mill. In attendance was notable names like Rick Ross, Julius Erving, Freeway, PnB Rock, and more.
