Sheriff's deputies immediately hauled him away in handcuffs. Mill was also dated the singer-songwriter Nicki Minaj, which ended this year.
Mill pleaded guilty in October to reckless driving charges in New York City after he was arrested for doing wheelies on a dirt bike posting videos online. She said Mill's sentence would be served in state prison, where he would be eligible for state parole supervision after two years. Since then prosecutors say Mill has violated parole by repeatedly changing his court-approved travel schedule and ducking a drug test. The judge confessed that she had been trying to help the rapper for about a decade but Mill appears to do what he wants to do, reports said.
One artist who was particularly vocal about Mill's prison sentence was Jay Z. In a Facebook post on Monday, the music mogul called out the justice system for its unfair treatment of another black man.More news: Pentagon: Ground Invasion the Only Way to Destroy North Korea Nukes

So to recap: Meek committed a somewhat serious crime in 2008, then a series of minor offenses (sometimes purely bureaucratic) in the years that followed, which pissed off a judge enough to "earn him" years in prison.
Meek is, of course, a member of Jay-Z's Roc Nation, but clearly with those strong words their bond is bigger than just a business relationship. His career kick-started after his 2009 release from prison.
JAY-Z has commented on the jail sentence given to rapper Meek Mill, calling it "unjust and heavy handed". There is no reason he should continue to be punished - and punished harshly - for a crime he committed almost a decade ago.
Mill was originally arrested in 2008 and convicted of drug dealing and gun possession.
