This time last year, Meek Mill was released from jail after being sentenced to two years.

His conviction stemmed from a decade old drug and gun conviction that had him on extended probation, making it challenging to ever be truly free.

Back in November, Judge Genece E. Brinkley wanted to put Meek away for 2-4 years for violating his parole. The “violations” included two arrests, one for an incident that happened at a St. Louis airport, and for allegedly recklessly driving a dirt bike.

The “What’s Free” rapper was released on April 24, 2018, due to prosecutors saying his original conviction should be vacated because of questions about the credibility of his arresting officer, according to a source.

Meek left jail with Philadelphia Sixers co-owner Michael Rubin and boarded a helicopter. He then went straight to an NBA playoff game. Since getting released, he vowed to dedicate his life to prison reform and he kept his word.

A few months later in June, on the Hot 97 Summer Jam stage, he came out on a dirt bike, the same vehicle that landed him in jail a few months prior!
