Philadelphia rapper received two to four years for parole violations.

Jay-Z denounced Meek Mill’s two-to-four year prison sentence for violating probation as “unjust and heavy-handed” in a message on Facebook Monday night.

“The sentence handed down by the Judge – against the recommendation of the Assistant District Attorney and Probation Officer – is unjust and heavy-handed,” Jay-Z said. “We will always stand by and support Meek Mill, both as he attempts to right this wrongful sentence and then in returning to his musical career.”

While Jay-Z’s Roc Nation company manages Meek Mill, the former has also become a fierce advocate for criminal justice reform.

On Monday, a Philadelphia judge handed down Meek Mill’s prison sentence after the rapper violated his probation with a pair of arrests earlier this year. The rapper, born Robert Williams, was arrested in March after a fight in the St. Louis airport, though those charges were dropped. In October, he pleaded guilty to reckless driving after a video was posted of him doing wheelies on a dirt bike in New York City.

When asked if he planned on appealing the sentence, Brian McMonagle, Meek Mill’s defense attorney, responded, “You’re goddamned right I am.”
