Just a little longer, Meek…
Wednesday, June 1st was the day rapper Meek Mill was set to be completely done with his house arrest agreement. But because the Philly native did not perform the “right” type of community service, Meek will have to stay on house arrest for 8 more days.
Someone close to Meek told TMZ that Mill was never told a specific type of community service to perform. He had been spending time at local schools, giving motivational speeches, and giving back to the Flint Water Crisis, but that was not what was supposed to be done.
Meek was ordered to spend 90 days working with the homeless, Habitat for Humanity, seniors and/or veterans. This work was supposed to be done 7 days a week, while Meek only performed 6 days a week, hurting his case even more.
Meek was sentenced to his three-month house arrest back in February for violating his parole that stemmed from a gun and dug violation in 2008.
During the initial ruling after his release from jail, it was stated that Meek could not make any music while on house arrest but according to TMZ, Meek was told he could make music for free, to protect his brand.
So the freestyles such as “Trap Vibes,” Drake’s “Summer Sixteen,” and Desiigner’s “Panda” were released on SoundCloud but not for any profit. Meek most recently remixed Fat Joe and Remy Ma’s “All The Way Up.”
The District Attorney’s Office of Philadelphia will revisit Meek’s case once he has completed the correct hours of service.
