Meek Mill is serving two to four years for probation violations.
And he wants to do it in general population.
Right now, Meek is being kept in solitary for 23 hours a day, 7 days a week. Prison officials are worried about Meek's celebrity status and believe sticking him in solitary is the only way they can protect him.
However, Meek's lawyers argue that Meek will do fine in general pop because he's respected on the streets and has given back to his community. They also say that keeping Mill in solitary is hindering his creativity.
Of course, what Meek's lawyers really want is the sentence to be overturned. Yesterday, they officially filed a motion to have Meek released and to have Judge Genece Brinkley removed from his case.
As has been well documented, Brinkley is accused trying to get Meek to sign with her friend, manager Charlie Mack. She also allegedly demanded he record a cover of the Boys II Men hit "On Bended Knee" that includes a shout out to her. Meek didn't do either, and his legal team contends Brinkley now has a personal vendetta against Meek.
The FBI is reportedly investigating the charge Brinkley tried to steer Meek to Mack.
