Jay-Z isn't happy that Meek Mill was sentenced back to prison for violating his probation. Not one bit.
He isn't keeping his mouth shut about it either.
After sending a statement through his Facebook page Tuesday, he decided to go in deeper with some comments during the 4:44 Tour.
“He caught a charge when he was like 19, he’s 30 now, he’s been on probation for 11 years. F***ing 11 years. Probation. 11 years. Judge says he violated because he did two in four years because he got arrested for being on a bike popping a f*cking wheelie. Still here. Aye, this 4:44 album is about us moving forward and past it. In order for us to move past all the sh*t we’re going through, we gotta address it. Everyone has to be just as outraged. You can’t look at this as a black and white issue, you have to look at it as a human issue.”
According to TMZ:
Pennsylvania's Dept. of Corrections says the rapper is being processed right now. It's still unknown which prison he'll be serving his sentence.
Prison officials say they won't release the name of Meek's new prison until he's arrived there ... for security concerns.
His lawyer Joe Tacopina expressed concern about the judge and seems confident in winning an appeal. He addressed an incident to Complex where the judge suggested he shout her out on a song and that it sample Boyz II Men's "On Bended Knee."
That's one of them, yeah. And that wasn't just a claim, it's a fact. Nicki Minaj was there with Meek when she asked him in the chambers to re-record the song "On Bended Knee," give a shout-out so to speak, to her, or attribute to her, mention her name in the song. He's a rapper, he thought it was a joke.
