Who is Meek Mill?
Meet Meek Mill is the most prominent rapper of a generation to emerge from Philly, and is one of America’s most famous parolees.
Tell me more...
He was initially a battle rapper and rose from the streets of south Philly to hip hop royalty, all while on probation. When Meek was a teenager, he was convicted of possession of a gun. Ten years later he remains, to this day, on probation.
Why does his case matter?
Meek's original case showcases the failings - and corruption - that has rotted the Philadelphia criminal justice system - from lying cops, to a complicit and harsh district attorney, to a vindictive judge.
