Meek Mill received some bad news in court today. The 32-year-old rapper attended a hearing in Superior Court of Pennsylvania on Tuesday to determine whether his old weapons possession case will be thrown out.

Last month, the same court overturned Judge Genece Brinkley's revocation for violating the terms of his 2007 conviction. He was granted a new trial.

In a statement last month, Meek thanked the superior court and said he was "ecstatic that justice prevailed." He also vowed to continue working to "change these outdated laws and fix our broken criminal justice system."

But things didn't go as planned for Meek and his legal team.

According to NBC NY, Meek's legal team asked the court for additional time to prepare his case and the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office did not object to the request. But the judge disappointed Meek and his lawyers by delaying the decision until next month.

Meek's legal team had hoped to end the rapper's 12-year ordeal today, but the judge had concerns, according to sources.

A new hearing was set for Aug. 27, per NBC NY, and Meek was allowed to remain out of prison on his own recognizance.

Meek's fans had hoped to celebrate his freedom with him as they gathered outside of Philadelphia's Stout Center for Criminal Justice. But the disappointed rapper did not speak to them after leaving the courthouse and hopping into a chauffeured car.

"While we had hoped that this matter would end today, we remain confident that justice will prevail in Meek's case once and for all," Mill's attorney Joe Tacopina said in a statement on Tuesday.

    Not a fan but I think it's time they leave this dude TF alone.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Cant stand this idiot but this is crazy at this point

  • Cricket404

    He can't catch a break. Maybe he should have worn a suit and proper shoes.

  • Kanyade

    Why he coming out of his clothes? Wait until you get in the car, man.

  • MJF

    Damn boo. I work out to Championships on a daily basis, that's my jam. Hoping he can move forward with his life soon.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    So his legal messes have been dragging on for 12 years now?
    I can only imagine what this man has spent on legal fees over all these years. These lawyers are not cheap.

  • Wreckognize Game

    I looked at the outfit too. Step it up Meek.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Can't rap worth a damn. Mirophone Mill

  • NuBeauty

    They trying to push him to the edge but don't give in Meek. Keep doing positive and everything WILL work out in your favor. Philly should be ashamed. All the doing is milking him for all the money they can because they know all of that is about to come to an end. Some verdicts isn't about the crime but what the state can get out of it ($)!!!!

  • KLo

    that jacket look too small. is that how men are wearing them now

  • Pamela

    He shouldn't have worn torn pants to court. Show some respect .

  • Alextra Ballard

    It looks extra small

  • Fire & Ice

    It amazes me how many people don't get this. There's a certain decorum in terms of attire, that should be followed for certain places.

  • ALLMINE?

    I can't

  • ALLMINE?

    We been off trying to "LOOK THE PART" as a people. Smh

  • ALLMINE?

    Omg

  • what?why

    Justice did not prevail - he broke probation several times, even left the area - a big no no! Why does he think he is above the law - because Jay Z backs him? I don't think he is exempt.

  • Li-Wright

    This isn't bad news. If they had arrested him and put him in jail would be bad news!

  • Li-Wright

    Yes, men are wearing as tight as can be.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    It was the jeans. That was disrespectful attire for court.

  • Fire & Ice

    This is true. Presenting a professional respectable image goes a long way.

  • Li-Wright

    At least Cardi B wore a suit by a designer. He looks like a hobo.

  • ALLMINE?

    That's how I was raised.

  • iWasteTime

    The judge has every right to be concerned.
    Dude was on IG saying SAYING he was off the Loud.
    Bruh ... you just ,maybe might be free

  • KarmaBackAround

    As a Grown man, put on a shirt, tie n slacks in court! Your approach was wrong but they still draggin the hell out of this case! This worse then child support ????

  • Wreckognize Game

    It’s his lower body (in my Yung Miami voice) ?

  • Wreckognize Game

    Meek you are earning respect with your prison reform movement. Please boss up. If all else fails try to look the part. SEE Nipsey Hussle’s magazine spread. You are just as tall as Nip and should look great in a suit. Or you might just look like a tall MLK Jr.?

    Should've went and seen Trump when he got out like he said instead of letting jay-z and the rest of you pro-blacks talk him out.. Could've teamed up with kim k on tbe prison reform if that's his so called movement.. Besides those arn't his words anyway..

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • SaltineCrackers

    Meek didn't show up to court like that right?? Anyone in Philly?? Someone tell Meek to stay in the house until the 27th, and I mean inside the house...dont even go to the mailbox.

  • Trentaye

    LOCK HIM UP!

  • Ni Ni

    Right, he's not even dressed like he wants freedom. I'd been in there with a three piece suit on.

  • Trace da Ace

    well...he should have known that they was not letting this go easy....

  • gellie

    Story of his life. Look, people are making a martyr out of this man, but he is just a comedy of errors. This was a short stay in the big house, and a 5 year probation back in 2009. Had put his head down, kept his nose clean, did what he needed to do to get off paperwork, he would've been done with this mess FIVE YEARS AGO!!! But he just kept frickin up extending his probation in leau of prison, and now he's the poster child for injustice?? Here we are a decade later, and he's still doing dumb shit like wearing torn jeans to court. He doesn't get it, and he never has. This is what that judge that everyone demonized for the last decade was dealing with.

  • Cricket404

    It's the current culture, buck the old system it's not for us type thinking. I wonder if he addressed the judge as Your Honor or not.

  • MsAmour22

    He's so fugly ??

  • SaltineCrackers

    Exactly it's not like he can't afford it. He's dressed poorly and looks tide as hell, but maybe he changed in the bathroom...I hope he changed in the bathroom.

  • Fire & Ice

    You're right about them bucking the system. Unfortunately the old guard is still on charge.

  • SaltineCrackers

    Exactly he was the right person to do it.

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    I said the same thing about Meek's wardrobe. Thought I was just old. I hope ole boy takes your advice in the meantime.

  • Karen Brady

    Not this mofo AGAIN!

  • Coy little wink

    He can't be serious wearing those ripped jeans and smedium blazer to court

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    I hope his lawyer did all the talking and addressed the judge properly. But, I would not be shocked if he let a "Ya feel me" or "Ya know what I'm sayin" slide out.

  • Ni Ni

    Lol

  • Renee26

    Chile...the things they let these celebs get away with

  • Renee26

    ?

  • SaltineCrackers

    I hope so too because he looks like he has a rebellious spirit.

  • MsPam

    I can’t stand grown men with ripped jeans, matter of fact I don’t like them on boys.

  • MsPam

    Dude in the white shirt looks like he’s related to Jay Z.

  • 2True 4You

    For Real....SMH.

  • 11pink123

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

  • RealATLPeach36

  • Renee26

  • HoneyHitchcock

    That’s not necessarily bad news, it’s just prolonged news. Why does he look like he’s wearing a pair of wheelies sneakers?

  • Jussjess25
  • Janice Collins

    And this is why more gun laws won't work. He don't use the gun laws we got.

  • Ms..N
  • PrettyMeka08

    Probably addressed the judge by his/her first name ?

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Did he sCruggle to get that lil ole BLAZER ON?

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    IDK if I dont like him because he's from my city...or if he's ugly...or if he just talks too damn much...

  • SayWhatNow?

    Childish af. That's something a kid does after you make them dress up for church or school.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    He looks like she should give up on his hair and just shave it all off. Might make him look younger, too.

  • teather

    WTF did he not appear looking more presentable. Do these folks realize these judges would like nothing more than to lock you up forever? He couldn't find a pair of slacks?? Many of our men have drank the kool aid. You honestly think your money will save you? Lemme clear this up for you: WHAT THEY DO YOU CANNOT DO. no matter what.
    He's a fool.

  • teather

    I never say anyone is ugly, but you all are down below. He looks similar to many of the men that get you ladies' panties in a bunch. he looks no different that all those current rappers who make you all melt. Which one is it?

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    All the above

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Lol

  • Guess Who

  • Applebootay

  • Applebootay
