Meek Mill may face prison time next year after a Philadelphia judge determined the rapper had violated the terms of his probation, which included him ignoring travel restrictions and other rules.
Common Pleas Court Judge Genece Brinkley ruled that Mill cannot work or perform before the February 5th hearing for his sentencing and ruling unless it is community service.
Mill later told the judge that he’s aware his “whole life is on the line,” and that he has been spending time with his family and girlfriend Nicki Minaj.
Nicki Minaj testified on her man’s behalf in a Philadelphia court on December 10th in a bid to keep the rapper out of jail, telling Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley he is a new man.
“He’s not perfect, but I can’t believe how much he’s changed,” she said, before telling the court she plans to help her boyfriend get organised and fulfil his community service requirements.
Mill took the stand himself on Thursday (17Dec15) and broke down as he pleaded for leniency, after describing how tough it had been not to visit his sick mother in New Jersey following surgery as he couldn’t get the last-minute approval for the trip.
