Meek checked into prison last week (ends12Nov17) after Pennsylvania judge Genece Brinkley handed him a sentence of two to four years behind bars for two arrests that violated his probation from a 2008 drug and gun bust.

The severity of the punishment has sparked outraged protests from fans and hip-hop stars alike, including JAY-Z, and now his supporters have organised the Rally for Meek event, calling on activists to gather outside the Criminal Justice Center in the embattled rapper's native Philadelphia at 5pm on Monday to make their voices heard.

T.I. urges Meek Mill to learn and plan behind bars

  T.I. urges Meek Mill to learn and plan behind bars 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. "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.

A poster for the protest reads: "Our criminal justice system has failed Meek Mill and millions of others like him. We stand for justice."

Meek's mentor and Maybach Music Group label boss Rick Ross, T.I. and Big Sean all publicised the event by sharing the image on their Instagram pages, with the Bounce Back hitmaker captioning his post, "Way too important!", as producer Swizz Beatz remarked, "Stand for something or fall for anything #freemeekmill".

Fellow proud Philadelphians, The Roots star Black Thought and funnyman Kevin Hart, also commented on the rally via Twitter.

"I stand for @meekmill," Black Thought wrote beside the poster. "I hope my city does the same."

And Kevin added, "Let's go Philadelphia.... #FreeMeekMill".

The news of the protest emerges after Meek's attorney, Joe Tacopina, told TMZ.com his client will be applying to officials at Pennsylvania's Board of Pardons to get him out of jail.

A petition calling for Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf to pardon the musician, real name Robert Rihmeek Williams, has also garnered more than 300,000 signatures, although authorities insist Wolf does not have the power to interfere in the case.

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.
