Lucky for Meek, his legal team worked their magic and was able to use the fact that the officer that initially arrested Meek back in 2007 was corrupt. Although the judge over Meek’s case denied bail, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court was able to over rule her and Meek was released on bail while he appeals his 2007 case.
The internet went up for Meek as the news broke that the rapper was released. He headed straight to the 76ers arena where he got cleaned up ans was welcomed homed by Philly fans, Kevin Hart and his son Poppy.
The rapper also posted the below post thanking everyone involved in his release and those who supported him while he was locked up.
I’d like to thank God, my family, my friends, my attorneys, my team at Roc Nation including Jay Z, Desiree Perez, my good friend Michael Rubin, my fans, The Pennsylvania Supreme Court and all my public advocates for their love, support and encouragement during this difficult time. While the past five months have been a nightmare, the prayers, visits, calls, letters and rallies have helped me stay positive. To the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office, I’m grateful for your commitment to justice – not only for my case, but for others that have been wrongfully jailed due to police misconduct. Although I’m blessed to have the resources to fight this unjust situation, 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.
