Meek Mill Free to Release Music While on House Arrest
Meek Mill’s house arrest restrictions have changed. The Philly rapper can now release music while he serves time for violating parole, a shift from the original ruling that said he couldn’t record or release any new material.
However, there is a caveat. TMZ reports that Meek can release new music, but only to “protect his brand” and so long as it’s free. That could explain why Mill unleashed “Trap Vibes” on SoundCloud last week. It was, in part, a retaliation against Drake’s “Summer Sixteen” over the same beat. The track also included a remix of Desiigner’s “Panda.”
Meek earned 90 days under house arrest for violating probation following a 2009 drug and gun conviction and turned himself in at the beginning of March. So far, he’s had some famous allies at his home during the arrest, including Rick Ross and Nicki Minaj.
Speaking of his girlfriend, Meek and Nicki have been the subject of rumors since the house arrest ruling was made. Recently, Minaj addressed her relationship status. “I’m not single,” she wrote on Instagram, while telling “Ellen,” “He and I are just two souls right now, passing through the universe. I don’t know what’s gonna happen. I just have learned over the years to let things be and come and go as they’re gonna come and go.”
