Meek Mill made it out of the house to perform alongside DJ Khaled and Rick Ross before Beyonce took the stage in Philly.
Summer Jam wasn't the only big show that went down last night. Not too far away, Beyonce's "Formation" tour touched down in Philadelphia, and her official opener, DJ Khaled, had a few surprises in store, as he brought out Rick Ross as well as the hometown hero Meek Mill, performing for the first time since he was put on house arrest in early February. Meek's sentence was originally supposed to have been over last week, but on June 1, it was reported that Meek was given eight more days on house arrest because some of his volunteer work was not approved by the judge.
Does his appearance at Beyonce's show mean that his house arrest is officially over now? Meek's Instagram also shows that he was on stage during Lil Uzi Vert's set at the Roots Picnic, which took place on Saturday, also in Philly. According to TMZ, last night's performance was approved by the judge, but there hasn't been any confirmation on whether his sentence is officially up. He was originally sentenced because he violated his parole by performing outside of Philly without authorization. It now seems that he's allowed to tear down stages once again, as long as they're situated in Philly.
When he is officially freed from the confines of his own mansion, it's unclear when Meek will be allowed to perform in other cities. In any case, there's no better place to play than in one's stomping grounds, and he clearly had the support of his city last night at Lincoln Financial Field.
Meek and Rozay joined forces for their MMG classic "Ima Boss," and Meek also went solo to drop his live staple, the "Dreams and Nightmares Intro," which still ranks as one of his best tracks. Backstage was Meek's boo, who's been holding it down in Philly for her man, as well as Yo Gotti and Jay Z, who kept up his duties as his wife's roadman, despite his presence being requested at Summer Jam.
