Published Dec 04, 2017In early November, Meek Mill (born Robert Williams) was sentenced to two to four years in state prison following a probation violation for a 2008 gun and drug conviction. The sentence has prompted backlash from Meek's hip-hop contemporaries and the public alike, feeling the ruling against the rapper was unjust. Despite that, his request for bail has now been denied.
As TMZ reports, court documents show Court of Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley has deemed the MC a "flight risk," in addition to being "a danger to the community." She is also said to have questioned the validity of the rapper's drug tests.
Last month, Meek's lawyers alleged that Brinkley's treatment of the rapper was biased, having pressured him to switch managers and give her a shout-out in in covering a Boyz II Men song. The FBI were also said to have opened an investigation into the allegations against Brinkley.
TMZ reports that the rapper's lawyer, Joe Tacopina, has said they will appeal Judge Brinkley's decision, which he claims continues her long pattern of unfair treatment.
Meek delivered his Wins & Losses LP earlier this year.
