Meek Mill's Lawyer Calls Rapper's Release From Prison Bittersweet

Meek Mill expected to attend 76ers game after prison release

Meek's freedom was granted Tuesday (April 24) by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court when they sent Judge Genece Brinkley, the judge presiding over Meek's case, a mandate for his release.

Rapper Meek Mill says he believes a lot of important people are depending on him now that he's out of prison.

On the eve of his release, Mill, victor of the 2016 Billboard Music Award for Top Rap Album, tweeted that the past five months in jail "have been a nightmare".

Rapper Meek Mill is hoping for a double celebration as he spends his first evening outside of jail since November (17) at a Philadelphia 76ers play-off game.

G7 ministers to discuss Russian Federation , but not sanctions
At Russia's request, Mnuchin met with Siluanov during International Monetary Fund meetings in Washington last week. However, the Russian oligarch is trying to save Rusal without surrendering control.

His imprisonment "focused attention on probation and parole practices nationally and in Pennsylvania", according to the report , which added the state "serves as a good example of how high rates of probation and parole can go hand-in-hand with, and contribute to, high incarceration rates". And earlier this month, a Spike Jordan-directed video for "Wins & Losses"' "1942 Flows" came out showing Mill in a reflective mood interspersed with clips from "Free Meek Mill" rallies.

A court now has 60 days to decide whether Meek Mill will face a new trial but prosecutors could also choose to completely drop the charges.

Rubin picked up the 30-year-old rapper from a state prison in the city of Chester Tuesday. I just left from seeing him in jail with @michaelgrubin and we were just told that he is being released.

Meek adds, "To the Philadelphia District Attorney's office, I'm grateful for your commitment to justice - not only for my case, but for others that have been wrongfully jailed due to police misconduct". "He said, 'That's what I want.' So when they released him, we said the helicopter's gonna pick you up". "I understand that many people of color across the country don't have that luxury and I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues". "You could tell he was trying to hold on". Mill's lawyers spent months battling to get Mill freed on bail after he was sentenced to two to four years in prison for probation violations. "He's gotta get a shower, and we gotta go win this game", Rubin told a group of reporters in the parking lot after the vehicle pulled up about 45 minutes before tipoff. "It was big for the city to see him out and to see us clinch a first round".

Cheers to Record Store Day!
The day is a celebration of the brick and mortar store, and the atmosphere is festive. "It's like a cultural event". Dre, Prodigy, Nas, The Notorious B.I.G., Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock, Cypress Hill and Cam'ron plus many more.

Members of the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles also championed Mill's cause.

His case is seen by criminal justice reform advocates as emblematic of a legal system they say treats minorities unjustly and hands out too harsh of punishments.

Mill issued a statement saying the past months had been "a nightmare", and thanked his many supporters and visitors, who included Mr Rubin and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
