Meek Mill attends National Basketball Association playoff game after prison release

  • Meek Mill is out of prison, and everyone wants him at the Sixers game

As Philly.com points out, although the Dreamchaser mogul is freed, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court released Mill on unsecured bail, which means that he must show up for future court appearances or risk going back to prison.

The rapper described his last five months in prison as "a nightmare" and said numerous "prayers visits, calls, letters, and rallies" helped him stay "positive". "I haven't slept one minute", he said.

Even on a night where the Sixers would win 104-91, clinching their first postseason series since 2012, Meek Mill was the star.

Upon his release from prison, Meek Mill was greeted by 76ers co-owner Michael Grubin. "It has been made to look like she's picking on Meek Mill, but she does this all the time with probation violations, she takes it very seriously".

Earlier on Tuesday, comedian and Philadelphia native Kevin Hart visited the rapper in jail.

A third of Pennsylvania's prison beds in 2017 were occupied by people who have violated parole or probation, costing the state $420 million per year, according to the report.

Rubin picked up the 30-year-old rapper from a state prison in the city of Chester Tuesday.

Mill's attorney, Joe Tacopina, thanked the high court.

Mill alluded to that himself in one of his initial tweets upon the announcement of his release, when he thanked the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office and wrote: "I'm grateful for your commitment to justice". "A judge who just could not be fair and impartial but just really had to go to extremes to try and extract punishment from Meek", Tacopina said of Judge Genece Brinkley. "I understand that many people of color across the country don't have that luxury and I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues".

'In the meantime, I plan to work closely with my legal team to overturn this unwarranted conviction and look forward to reuniting with my family and resuming my music career, ' he said.

A team of lawyers and public relations consultants had waged an all-out battle to get Mill freed, levelling fierce criticism at the judge as a stream of high-powered figures and celebrities visited him in jail hours before the Supreme Court ruling. "It was big for the city to see him out and to see us clinch a first round".

Many of Meek Mill's supporters have argued that his case is a testament to the issues present in the criminal justice system. Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and retired boxing great Bernard Hopkins sat near Hart and Mill, and Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf joined them in the second half.

His case is seen by criminal justice reform advocates as emblematic of a legal system they say treats minorities unjustly and hands out too harsh of punishments.
