Oceans 8

Incarcerated rapper Meek Mill will not be released from prison on Monday. The rapper’s attorney disputed Internet rumors that claimed Meek, real name Robert Rihmeek Williams, will be released following a hearing on Monday.

Rumors swirled on Twitter.com that Williams would be released from prison in time to attend the Philadelphia 76ers 1st playoff game.

“As far as I know there is no truth to those reports,” Williams’ lawyer, Joe Tacopina, said in an email to PhillyVoice.com on Thursday.

Williams was sentenced to 2-to-4 years in prison last year for violating his probation in a 2008 weapons case.

After Williams was shipped off to prison, his fans protested in the streets, with many saying the sentence was too harsh.



Celebrities, business leaders and even politicians called for Williams’s sentence to be reversed.

Williams’ lawyers waged a campaign attacking the credibility of sentencing judge, Genece Brinkley, claiming she had a “personal vendetta” against the troubled rapper.

Brinkley recently denied Williams’ request for bail, noting that he has violated his probation at least 5 times over the years.

Williams’ lawyers plan to take their appeal to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, which will likely send the case back down to Brinkley’s courtroom.

    In other news innocent men of color are still being unjustly imprisoned, and killed by police. Women of color are the most unprotected species on the planet, and felons are being set free without any job skills, or a fair chance of employment with most corporations yet statistically they claim convicted felons have the highest risk of recidivism I wonder why. I have never seen Meek or many of his visitors protesting for any of the aforementioned reasons, yet he wants sympathy this brother was given an opportunity many are not. If you know big brother is watching act accordingly; he and his attorney’s have proven to be liars so I will never support his cause this sister gave him many chances. This is the problem with many men of color taking responsibility for their actions the way I see it Meek failed Meek. Live with your mistakes and learn from them, and don’t think because you have money, or fame the system or society should feel pity. Many more in entertainment should have had a Meek lesson, and they wouldn’t be glamorizing popping bottles, drinking syrup, and dumping pills. The End!

  • the guest

    Meek is being railroaded. The judge is unethical.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    So hood, so street, so thug. These guys get to prison or face priston time and suddenly all the b itch oozes outta their pores. Do your time because you violated the terms of your probation. No matter how minimal the act, you violated your probation. Deal with it Meeka.

  • KISSmyENTIREass

    thank u I agree

  • KISSmyENTIREass

    bye dum bitch named SPAM ??

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I’m so phuckin tired of TI. This is why I turned a deaf ear to all things Atlanta when the new mayor name TI and KILLER MIKE to whatever board.

  • Logan Roberts

    He reminds me of Cleo from Set it off.

  • the guest

    He is entitled to fair due process and appeal and his rights are circumvented by personal vendetta of that judge. Even though he violated his probation has still has a right to judicial fairness.

  • TMW

    “Meek failed Meek.”

    THIS!!!

  • KISSmyENTIREass

    Especially when murders are walking free.. And according to public records she was soft on punishment with people who did worst.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    I see meek got them extension

  • i troll it like i see it

    Is this picture for real?

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Meek ugly azz need to be in there

  • brooklyn23

    Thats what i wanted to know

  • KcoolMuziq

    What do U have against T.i.? He has done nothing but support his community ever since he became a MEGA star.

  • TrollingStoned

    Yes. It’s his mug shot from the crime that I believe got him into all of this trouble that eye might be edited though lol

  • MythCalledLove

    As he should. Folks hollering about how wrong it is. Just because you “rap” and laid with a popular rapper does not give you a “Exempt card” Let you out? Yet inmate number ****** has to do his bid. Maybe there is a “gourmet ramen noodle” recipe floating around like Tracy Morgan character Last OG. Find the “cook” at least hv a decent meal.

  • DeeFromLA

    Good Lord, He looks hideous. His younger years must have been Hell

  • Blackisgodok

    She just asked them to step down. These niggas do not represent Atlanta. Neither do gay people.

  • Blackisgodok

    He is a thug. He sold drugs and represented the community in a criminal way. The community didnt need him.

  • KcoolMuziq

    So was Judge Mathis once upon a time. Now look at him!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    so sick of this cat damn… do the time

  • BlackBeauty

    I do not understand for the life of me why everyone is screaming free Meek. I am all for fighting injustices… Maybe I’m missing something but I don’t think his case applies. Or is it just me??

  • Blackisgodok

    Oprah had a rough life but she didnt sell drugs to the community. Black women have gone through the same shit mostly brought on by systemic oppression against black men who turn around and mistreat black women, whats your point. TI is not a judge mathis.

  • Drea982

    He had extensions, huh? Weird.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Your missing the point. My point is just because someone has a criminal past like U brought T.I.’s up. Doesn’t mean they can’t change and be a leader in the community as a community activist like T.I. Is destined to be.

  • Mischelle

    It’s not just you. I can’t understand it either.

  • WillyWonker

    I agree with you as well… I don’t understand it either… I’m assuming it’s the uneducated folks that would be caught doing the stupid things he’s done. No one with an education would honestly think he should be free… he put himself in the predicament in the first place now he has to deal with the consequences…

  • WillyWonker

    They enjoy having menaces in society…

  • Fire & Ice

    The judge ain’t having it with him!. He’s gonna have to wear this one, cause anybody else would. This is probably what he needs, to scare him straight.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Meek is crying… He thought all they peoples had power to get him out. Folk better stop being followers! Lls

  • Dowoop

    It’s not just you. Some people that are in jail deserve to be there.

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Is that a photoshopped pic?

  • Rayscoty

    Is that one of Chris Brown victims

  • KarmaBackAround

    I believe this is the mugshot from him resisting arrest when he was younger

  • Merkaba morris

    This is a ugly man ……. Him and Nicki both are disgusting to have a platform like this and use it like they do ,why don’t our people Love themselves …..both of them are pitiful…..Love and Light

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    They sure don’t. If you lead off in everything you do with being gay, no, you should step aside too. It’s what you are, not who you are.

  • Blackisgodok

    We went from our best representing us to thugs representing thr black voice. Its just not a voice powerful enough to lead the people. He has the numbers however his credibility is shot. You can follow his showmanism. I would much rather follow someone with a MLK background. No rehabilitated thug can lead the educated black man or woman because we dont relate to committing crimes. He can lead the hood niggas but they really have no voice. Just pity protesting. None understand laws, statutes or rules and how to play those rules to the greater advantage. If TI wants to be taken serious perhaps he should finish his highschool educatiom go to college learn politics and play the game and counter the laws the right way. Like Judge Mathis.

  • Blackisgodok

    This is where our community loses significant ground. Its pitiful

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I just don’t understand why they doing this man like that. There have been a lot of other people that have done much worst and got a lot less

  • C Mack

    Y’all sound so stupid supporting this judge. It’s evident a lot of y’all have lived perfect lives and haven’t dealt firsthand with how unfair the law really is.

    Meek deserved consequences, but the consequences he’s been given are TOO MUCH! Some of y’all don’t even know why he’s in jail and hollering “He deserved it!” We complain about other races getting away with crimes yet we turn against our own so quick!

  • Elle V

    As a person of color and a WOMAN who has a felony conviction, I was LUCKY to not have to serve any jail time due to extenuating circumstances (single parent and no prior record). And trust me, I did plenty to get caught up. I got a lengthy probation and was told from Day 1 that if I fuck up…I do the rest of my time. It hangs over my head like a black cloud but I DO NOTHING to jeopardize that..test dirty on a urine—>DYFS will be on my lil’ doormat knocking… don’t pay my fines —->P.O. on my doormat knocking….any police contact/arrest—->PO on my doormat knocking… These things are told to you AND you sign a form saying you understand all of this. However, I know of other brown/black/tan folks that have gotten very harsh sentences at the same time. We know the justice system is not designed in our favor so if we find ourselves in the system it’s best to do what you’re asked, pay your fines, make your curfew, stay outta trouble and walk the straight and narrow until your free. Folks gotta account for themselves and their actions because we all understand that the consequences are more than we are willing to pay. I understand that the cop in Meek’s case was crooked and the conviction was tossed but he’s got a lawyer on the case and yes it’s harsh but justice does not work quickly for us black folk but in due time he will be free. And I hope he learns a lesson to stay out of the justice system. It is a trap.
