Rapper T.I. has urged Meek Mill to learn as much as he can while serving time behind bars for a parole violation.

Nicki Minaj's ex was sentenced to serve between two and four years in prison for a series of breaches earlier this week (beg06Nov17), and the rap world has come to his support, with stars like JAY-Z calling the hip-hop star's return to jail "unjust and heavy handed".

Now T.I. is speaking out, calling Meek's prison stint "excessive" and suggesting lawmakers "didn't want him to make it".

But, now it's a done deal and the rap star, real name Robert Rihmeek Williams, is going back to prison, the Live Your Life star, who spent 11 months behind bars for weapons possession, has some sage advice.

Meek Mill's lawyer wants judge removed from case

  Meek Mill's lawyer wants judge removed from case Meek Mill's lawyer is planning to formally request a new judge to oversee the rapper's probation violation appeal after he was handed a two-to-four year sentence. On Monday (06Nov17), Pennsylvania judge Genece Brinkley ruled Mill, real name Robert Rihmeek Williams, should serve at least two years behind bars for breaking the terms of his probation from a 2008 drug and gun bust after agreeing to plea deals following two arrests earlier this year (17). Her punishment came as a surprise to Mill and his lawyer, Joe Tacopina, as the prosecutors in the case had recommended he be spared jail. Mill checked in to prison on Wednesday (08Nov17), but his legal representative has already started working on his client's appeal and he is now seeking to remove Brinkley from the case altogether, citing a number of accusations of misconduct. Among the incidents Tacopina will be detailing in his court filing includes the judge's alleged recommendation that Meek record a cover of Boys II Men's On Bended Knee and give her a 'shout out' - an idea the rapper scoffed at last year (16). According to Tacopina, Meek's ex-girlfriend, Nicki Minaj, was a witness to the exchange, which took place in the judge's chambers after she requested a private chat during a hearing. The lawyer also alleges Brinkley told Meek to leave his deal at Roc Nation and sign to her friend's management firm.

"Learn as much as you can and just strategise for the moment you step out of there," he tells TMZ. "Strategise for your comeback."

Meek Mill was convicted of drug dealing and gun possession in 2008, and received a prison sentence of 11-to-23 months. Upon his release in 2009, he was placed on probation, but struggled to stick to the terms of the arrangement.

On Monday (06Nov17), Pennsylvania judge Genece Brinkley sentenced Mill, to two-to-four years behind bars for the probation violation.

Responding to the news, JAY-Z said, "The sentence handed down by the Judge - against the recommendation of the Assistant District Attorney and Probation Officer - is unjust and heavy handed. We will always stand by and support Meek Mill, both as he attempts to right this wrongful sentence and then in returning to his musical career."

The sentence came as a surprise to many because prosecutors in the case recommended the rapper be spared more jail time for the probation violations, commending Mill for staying away from drugs since January and complying with the requirements of his probation.

Meek Mill heading to court for bail hearing .
Rapper Meek Mill is heading back to court for a bail hearing. The Ima Boss hitmaker is currently serving a two-to-four-year prison sentence for violating the terms of his probation relating to a 2008 drug and gun bust. He checked in to prison last week (ends10Nov17), but Billboard.com reports he will return to court to face Judge Genece Brinkley on 27 November (17). Meek Mill's lawyers have filed a request to have Judge Brinkley removed from the case, claiming she has a personal vendetta against the rapper, real name Robert Williams, and ignored the recommendation of Williams' probation officer by sentencing him to more prison time. Her decision was made after he reportedly refused her suggestions to record a cover of a Boyz II Men song and leave his management deal at Jay-Z's Roc Nation label to work with Charlie Mack, a Philadelphia music executive she reportedly had a business relationship with. Mack claims he doesn't know Brinkley. Her alleged actions are also said to be under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). "When she requests he leaves his current management Roc Nation - which is one of the most important management companies in the world - and goes back to a local Philadelphia guy who has a spotted past because she had a personal relationship with him as manager, again, she's doing something that a judge would never be doing, having a personal interest," Joe Tacopina, one of Meek's attorneys, told the publication earlier this month. The 30-year-old's lawyers also filed a motion to appeal his prison term and have his probation terminated. The attorneys also requested to have the rapper released from solitary confinement and Tacopina confirms this has now taken place.
