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.
