Meek Mill's legal troubles have been ongoing for years, becoming one of the most widely reported trials of the last year. Reaching as far as the 2018 Winter Olympics, the Philadelphia rapper has received worldwide support as he fights for his release from prison. Things took a negative turn today as Meek's bail was refused by the judge in his case, reportedly giving no reason for the denial. The rapper has made as loud a statement as he could, deleting or archiving all of his posts on Instagram aside from one from four months ago, emphasizing the importance of his freedom.

For those who have followed Meek's case closely, you will be aware that a supporting officer was found to be on a list of "corrupt cops" and while this has not yet led to Meek's release, his legal team will attempt to sort things out with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. The November post that remains on the Philadelphian's account shows him sitting in a white room, with the following caption: "We go to war for our freedom ... they say we equal .... i used to wanna play i like Randall and be a [Philadelphia] Eagle .... i used to play the quarterback my homie would go receiver ... that was until the football got flattened by a dope needle ... on the pavement."

The comparison between the rapper's former football dreams and his current legal situation details the struggle that has been engrained in Meek's adult life. While the rapper's legal team continues to claim injustice is a major factor in his case, his release is yet to be determined as the judge is adamant on Meek serving his entire sentence.
