Chileeeeeeeeeeeee … word on the street is Meek Mill is NOT being granted a hearing for his probation violation and will remain in jail until October. Earlier in the month reports said that Meek Mill had been sentenced to 3-6 months in county jail after a probation violation. Label owner Rick Ross jumped to give a response saying that Meek’s jail time would only be a few weeks but it seems that not even Ross had the final answers about the situation. The rappers legal team had a petition for an emergency court date thinking he would get out of jail as soon as possible. The request was denied. Meek Mill’s legal team says that he as done nothing that could warrant his probation being revoked. Today Meek pleaded for parole from his ongoing sentence but was denied. The judge ordered the rapper to take anger management and parenting classes, then said the earliest he would be released is October 11th. Will you still support Meek Mill and MMG? Will you listen to his new album when it drops? *Rick Ross grunt*
