Meek Mill May Be Headed Back to Jail

Meek Mill could end up back behind bars.

The MMG rapper, who spent nearly six months in jail last year for a probation violation, took to Instagram to post an image bearing the words “Prayers go up, blessings go down,” captioned with a lengthy update on his legal standing.

“I’m actually fighting for my life and freedom,” he wrote. “Something I’ve been going thru from a case I caught at 19 years old and been on probation since… I am 28 now … It’s funny to see people on the internet laughing and joking about me and my family going thru these things, it’s just shows me where the world is at nowadays! But if you are for me prayers up and wish me the best! Thank you to everybody that ever supported and I will continue to b great! If this is my last post know I will continue to remain strong and grow to b a better man and set a example for every minority with a dream that anything is possible! Trials and tribulations and chances makes chances & never lose faith! No matter how things go. PRAYERS UP!!”

The Philadelphia native was initially convicted of gun possession and drug dealing back in 2008, sentenced to 11 to 23 months in prison that was cut short in exchange for a five-year parole agreement. He continued to schedule concert performances and the judge revoked his travel permit in 2012, but it was the following year that he was accused of violating probation for failing to report his travel plans.

By 2014, his probation was revoked after the judge found his behavior while on parole to be dubious. He was sentenced to prison that July, and was released in December.
