Meek Mill has been facing an uphill battle for so long and it felt as though he would never see this day. However, after working extremely hard with a phenomenal legal staff, the Philadelphia spitter can finally start to forget about his 2008 conviction. He announced the news that he would be granted a new trial after the Philly D.A suggested that Judge Genece Brinkley, who has proven to be very biased in the case, be removed from counsel. Meek is ecstatic about the news, sharing his joy online.

“As of right now I’m not on probation and I am not a felon anymore,” wrote the rapper. “Today was mega!!!” Congratulations to Meek Mill on this absolutely amazing news and we continue to keep him in our thoughts. He just took one giant leap forward in his case but this isn’t over yet.
