76ers superstar Joel Embiid paid a visit to Meek Mill in prison last week.
It’s nice to hear things are looking better than what they were for Meek. Just the other day he was sitting in solitary confinement serving his time not knowing what was happneing, and now he’s in general population & in a whole new facility, getting visitation from some major star athletes in the process. TMZ reports that Philadelphia 76er superstar Joel Embid decided to take time out of his busy schedule last week and pay a visit to Meek Mill in prison to help raise his spirits.
Meek, who’s originally from Philadelphia, and Joel, who’s the star of the Philadelphia 76ers, have become friends over the past couple years being stars in the City Of Brotherly Love. So to show support, Joel and 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin, decided to pay a visit to Meek’s facility last Friday, and according to one Sixers source, "They really lifted Meek's spirits.”
Unfortunately, not much else is known about their conversation or visit, but it’s just nice to see these guys sticking by Meek’s side in this trying time.
Joel isn’t the only athlete to raise Meek’s spirits. Former 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has also spoken with Meek Mill recently, saying he "wanted people to know regardless of his unjust situation, he’s in good spirits and humbled by the support the people have shown him.”
As for the latest with Meek, his emergency bail request was unfortunately denied Tuesday morning by a Pennsylvania Superior court and directed down to a lower court. Meek’s attorneys claim that they were forced to seek out higher-level help after Judge Genece Brinkley, the woman who originally presided over Meek's case and sentenced him to 2-4 years in prison, refused to respond to the multiple appeals that were submitted. But unfortunately, things are going Meek’s way and it doesn’t look like he’ll be getting out anytime soon.
The MMG rapper has been serving time since early November after violating his parole by exhibiting reckless endangerment in New York while driving a motorcycle through the city streets.
We’ll continue to keep you posted on all the latest with Meek moving forward.
