A US judge Genece Brinkley has ordered at least two years in prison for rapper Meek Mill for violating probation, a reportedly surprising harsh verdict that stunned the hip-hop world.
Mill, whose most recent album “Wins and Losses” reached number three on the US album chart this year, was sentenced over a case dating from when the 30-year-old was a teenager.
Raised by his mother in Philadelphia after his father was killed, the rapper born as Robert Williams was put on probation after a 2005 arrest on drug and gun possession charges.
Meanwhile Rap mogul Jay-Z has reacted saying that the sentence was “unjust and heavy-handed.”
