Rapper Meek Mill avoided jail time for a probation violation earlier today. A judge in Philadelphia ruled that Twitter Fingers will have to sit down at home for a few months though.
The judge sentenced Meek to 90 days on house arrest before he has to come back to court and determine how the remainder of his punishment will be served.
Meek is also banned from releasing any new music which means that Drake can continue to Flourish and Meek won’t be able to say a thing about it.
Rapper Meek Mill won’t have to spend the next year in jail because a Philly judge has ruled the Twitter fingered MC can serve his time on arrest according to TMZ reports:
A Philadelphia judge gave Meek 6 to 12 months in county jail … BUT … he will be allowed to serve the time on house arrest. He will do a minimum of 90 days, and won’t be able to do his regular job — rapping and performing … he can only do charitable work for the community.
That ban from work includes releasing any mixtapes. In other words, no diss tracks aimed at Drake … for a while.
The judge will reevaluate after 90 days to determine how much longer he’ll remain under house arrest.
Meek had been on probation for a 2009 drug and gun conviction when he skipped town for the AMAs in November without getting written permission from his probation officer. He also failed a pee test.
