Rally for Meek Mill scheduled for Monday

Rally for Meek Mill scheduled for Monday

The petition calls for Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf to review the two- to four-year sentence passed down to the Philly rapper for violating his probation in relation to a drug and gun case that is nearly a decade old.

Michael Rubin, who is also the executive chairman of the apparel company Fanatics and the co-owner of the NHL's New Jersey Devils, penned a letter to Judge Genece E. Brinkley, who handed down the sentence after Mill failed a drug test and violated travel restrictions set out by probation. In the letter, Rubin calls the Wins & Losses rapper a "good friend".

Meek Mill is often seen at Sixers games and is friends with numerous players on the team.

While acknowledging Meek has made mistakes, Rubin wrote that the rapper has made real growth as a person over the four years he has known him.

Rubin also vowed his support for the rapper, writing, "I want you to know that I am personally invested in helping him so that he can help others". I would hate to him incarcerated for these violations.

A new Change.org petition is calling for a review of the recent sentence that has thrown Meek Mill in state prison for at least two years.

The rally is going down today in Philadelphia outside the Criminal Justice Center at 13th and Filbert Streets. Rick Ross, legendary 76er Julius Irving and others are said to be planning an appearance.
