Meek Mill dodged a bullet today in court, as he won't have to go to prison for his latest set of probation violations.
Technically, he did get six to 12 months in country jail. However, the judge will let him serve the time under house arrest, for a minimum of 90 days.
The terms of the house arrest are pretty harsh. Not only won't he be let out to perform, but he isn't able to release any music (including free projects like mixtapes) during his house arrest.
Although, presumably, Nicki Minaj can visit him.
After 90 days the judge will reevaluate Meek, and decide if the period of house arrest is over or will continue.
Meek will need to turn himself in on March 1st, when he'll be fitted with an ankle bracelet.
