Five months after his sentencing, Philadelphia-based rapper Meek Mill was released from prison on Tuesday afternoon, according to reports
Mill, also known as Robert Rihmeek Williams, was freed after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court overruled Judge Genece Brinkley’s prior decision to deny Williams bail last week.
Brinkley, who initially sentenced williams to two to four years in prison in November, had previously denied a bail request in December.
Williams’ November sentencing stemmed from two arrests earlier in 2017. One was for a fight and another was for popping wheelies on a dirt bike. Based on these new charges and a failed drug test.
