Jay-Z Happy Over Meek Mill's Release

Judge Brinkley denied the rapper bail just last week, despite both the Philadelphia District Attorney and Governor Tom Wolf publicly supporting his release.

T.I. shared a video of a phone call he had with Meek Mill after he was released from prison.

The 30-year-old Philadelphia rapper, who was jailed in November over a case from his teenage years, was ordered out on bail by Pennsylvania's Supreme Court.

In an opinion earlier this month, Judge Genece Brinkley, who sent Mill to prison for the probation violations, strongly defended herself against accusations by the defense she was waging a vendetta against the rapper.

The sentence was for violating his probation related to gun and drug-related convictions in 2007.

T.I., Kevin Hart, and JAY-Z were among the first celebrities to react to his release, in fact, Kevin Hart was the first person to confirm his release.


Jay has been an outspoken supporter since the rap star was first locked up, and in November, he wrote a piece for the New York Times, in which he attacked the USA justice system and accused lawmakers of picking on black people.

The "All Eyes on You" hitmaker - whose real name is Robert Williams - also revealed he plans to continue fighting to have his conviction overturned, and insisted he would be returning to the studio to record new music soon. Later that day, the Twitter account of 76ers posted photos of Mill at the locker room, meeting some of the team while he's all smiles. He referred to his jail time as a "nightmare" and said he wouldn't have survived those five months if it had not been for the prayers and visits he got.

He further said "although I'm blessed to have the resources to fight this unjust situation, I understand that many people of colour across the country don't have that luxury and I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues".

As it turned out, the team sent a helicopter to pick him up, ensuring he would make it to the Wells Fargo Center in time to ring the ceremonial bell before the game.

In an op-ed a year ago for The New York Times, Jay-Z said that Mill's case was "just one example of how our criminal justice system entraps and harasses hundreds of thousands of black people every day".
