Meek Mill's Lawyer Details Convo Between Judge & Nicki Minaj

Meek Mill's legal strategy to get out of his 2 to 4-year sentence for probation violations is two front.

First, go after the integrity of the cop who arrested and testified against Meek a decade ago. That strategy got a big boost when it was revealed that the officer was on a list of corrupt cops compiled by the Philly DA. For that reason, Meek has been granted a post-conviction relief appeal.

Meek's team is also going after his judge, Genece Brinkley, whose shock probation violation sentence a few months back went against what the DA advised.

Meek's lawyers argue that she was mad at Meek because he wouldn't use the services of her friend, talent manager Charlie Mack, and because he wouldn't remake a Boyz II Men song and give her a shout out in it.

In an interview with HotNewHipHop, Meek's lawyer Joe Tacopina broke down a conversation between the judge and Meek's then-girlfriend Nicki Minaj.

"[Judge Brinkley] made a big deal months earlier on the record to say, 'I can never speak to you without your lawyer Mr. Williams,'" he said, "And then there's an instance where at the end of a proceeding, she asks to speak to Meek in chambers alone with Nicki Minaj, Meek's then-girlfriend."

"When Meek and Nicki came out of that private, in-chambers meeting, they both repeated a very troubling story that the judge had made a request of Meek to re-make a Boyz II Men song, Charlie Mack's band, by the way, "On Bending Knees" and to give a shout out to the judge on the song." He revealed, "And Meek thought, and Nicki as well, thought they were being subject to a joke or the judge was kidding and when they left the judge said, 'I'm serious.' And Meek refused that request. He said, 'that's not what I do. That's not my genre.' And she then said, 'suit yourself.'"

Meek's post-conviction relief hearing will be in April.
