'Justice 4 Meek' Petition Defends Rapper After Prison Sentence

'Justice 4 Meek' Petition Defends Rapper After Prison Sentenceā€

In regards to the harsh, undeserving sentencing of Robert Rihmeek Williams (Meek Mill), I felt the need to create a petition to reevaluate the charges, his impact in the community and the subsequent sentencing.

Meek Mill pleaded in court asking the judge to cut him some slack because he has made it this far and can't afford to start over.

Meek Mill's attorney, Joe Tacopina, is planning to file an appeal on behalf of the Philadelphia rapper who was received a two to four-year prison sentence for violating his parole.

Speaking to The FADER over the phone on Thursday, Tacopina detailed his accusations of misconduct against Judge Brinkley and said that his team will be requesting that she be recused from the upcoming appeals process. The sentence was handed down despite state prosecutors not recommending jail time for the rapper. Tacopina told Billboard that the judge requested that he leave Roc Nation and sign to her friend's management company. However, Brinkley said that she has been trying to help Mill for nearly 10 years and the rapper still does what he pleases. "His probation was supposed to end in 2013, and here it is, almost 2018, and he's still on probation for technical violations, travel violations - just doing work, which nobody gets violated for". Prosecutors recommended that Meek not serve any time behind bars, but the judge made the final call and chose to send Meek to prison.

Among the incidents Tacopina will be detailing in his court filing includes the judge's alleged recommendation that Meek record a cover of Boys II Men's On Bended Knee and give her a "shout out" - an idea the rapper scoffed at previous year (16).

When asked if Nicki Minaj would be involved in Mill's appeal case, Tacopina said that it isn't required at this time but will pursue all options to "make sure this perversion of justice is corrected". Meek's attorney called her bias and vindictive for handing down the sentence on Monday, telling reporters that she once asked the rapper to remake Boyz II Men classic single "On Bended Knee" and give her a shout-out.
