A major congratulations is in order for Meek Mill as he is officially a free man after 12 years of probation and legal battles. Earlier in July, Meek Mill was granted a new trial for his ’08 conviction. The Court accepted the guilty plea from Meek Mill for possession of firearms, and all other charges were dropped.
We can say he has made a major comeback with some of his accomplishments this year including launching Dreams Chasers Records, releasing his #FreeMeek documentary, and also teaming up with Jay Z to launch Reform.
Meek can now focus on being the president of Dream Chasers Records and also spearheading “Reform”, the justice reform project to positively influence change within the criminal justice system. Meek Mill stated,
“I’m extremely grateful that my long legal battle is finally behind me and I appreciate that it has sparked a much-needed discussion about probation reform and the inequalities that exist within our two Americas,” he said Tuesday. “I have always told the truth—that as a teenager, who saw many around me die from senseless gun violence, I carried a gun for protection. I take responsibility for that and—in conjunction with my work on the REFORM Alliance—I’ll continue to use my platform to make communities safer and reform our criminal justice system.”
Salute to Meek Mill and we can’t wait to see what comes of this new chapter.
