A couple years back, things got really ugly between Drake and Meek Mill during a feud that spawned some killer diss tracks and wedgie threats — but last night (November 19) in Melbourne, Australia, Drizzy seemed to put an end to the ongoing spat by voicing his support for the incarcerated Philly rapper.
 
During his set, Drake spotted an audience member wearing a "Free Meek Mill" shirt, and took the time to acknowledge it and agree with its message.
 
"I see you got the 'Free Meek Mill' T-shirt," he told the crowd. "Free Meek Mill too, for real. You're right."

Mill is currently serving a two to four year sentence in state prison due to probation violation stemming from a 2008 gun and drug conviction.
 
The FBI is reportedly investigating Judge Genece Brinkley for allegedly making "a possible extortionate demand" for Mill to break his Roc Nation deal and sign with producer Charlie Mack — as well as demanding a shout-out on a song by the Mack-managed group Boyz II Men.
 
Drake isn't the only rapper to have publicly voiced his support for Mill; JAY-Z recently penned an op-ed for the New York Times, stating that "what's happening to Meek Mill is just one example of how our criminal justice system entraps and harasses hundreds of thousands of black people every day."

Vinyl versions of Drake's albums Take Care, If You're Reading This It's Too Late and Views are available through Umusic.
