Jay-Z celebrated Meek Mill's release from prison Tuesday, writing on Facebook, "Today, Meek Mill, a son of Philadelphia, is a free."
By now, most of you are aware that Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill was released from prison earlier today. Everyone from Kevin Hart & T.I. to G Herbo & Trey Songz have all taken to social media throughout the day to celebrate Meek's release, and now his Roc Nation boss, Jay Z, has chimed in as well.
Jay Z took to Facebook a little while ago, and left the following message, saying Meek was incarcerated unjustly and should be celebrated now.
"Today, Meek Mill, a son of Philadelphia, is a free man." Hov said in a statement. "He was incarcerated unjustly and caught in a probation trap for years by a broken system. Now we can celebrate his release. We thank every individual that has supported and fought alongside Meek every step of the way.”
In addition to Hov himself, Roc Nation the company also sent out a statement as well. “We are pleased with the Supreme Court’s decision to grant Meek Mill bail and allow him to return home to his loved ones. We are grateful for all the support that Meek has received from his fans and public advocates over the past five months and look forward to working alongside Meek to fight for criminal justice reform.”
This all comes as Meek is currently enjoying the 76ers game in Philadelphia at the moment where he rang the ceremonial bell before the game (see here).
