JAY-Z Calls Meek Mill's Prison Sentence Unjust; Hip Hop Reacts

By HHL JT

The Hip Hop community is still reacting to Meek Mill receiving a 2-4 year jail sentence for violating probation.

In a Facebook message, JAY-Z said the sentence is unfair, and he’ll do everything he can to help Meek fight it and get back to making music again.


As we previously reported, Meek’s sentencing stems from two arrests that he had this year. One was in St. Louis where he and his crew got into a physical altercation, and he was also arrested in New York City for popping wheelies on his motorcycle. He wasn't charged in either case.

Besides Jay, Meek’s lawyer also criticized the sentencing and said the judge in the case is biased against his client.

Do you agree with Hov? Is Meek’s sentencing unfair? Here's how others are reacting:


Praying for my brother @meekmill right now. God sometimes puts the toughest battles on his strongest soldiers. I'm here for you man!!!! My brother for life...Always here for you man!!! This storm will pass...Stay strong & keep your head up

Tests are not for the faint at heart! . Every time an obstacle crosses his path, he fights his way through and comes out triumphant. I've watched him 1st hand fight this unjust system for close to a decade. But my dawg is a warrior! You know the family is already holding you down during this time of test. Here’s to the future! It will be BRIGHT! #doubleMDreamchasers
