‘Unjust and heavy-handed’: Jay-Z slams Meek Mill prison sentence probation violation

Quote:
A judge sentenced rapper Meek Mill to two to four years in prison for a probation violation Monday, drawing outcry from fellow entertainers and the hip-hop world.

“The sentence handed down by the Judge — against the recommendation of the Assistant District Attorney and Probation Officer — is unjust and heavy handed,” Jay-Z wrote Monday on Facebook. “We will always stand by and support Meek Mill, both as he attempts to right this wrongful sentence and then in returning to his musical career.”

Jay-Z, whose Roc Nation manages Mill, has been a vocal supporter of criminal justice reform. He produced the docu-series “Time: The Kalief Browder Story” and collaborated with the New York Times for a video op-ed about the war on drugs.

I would understand if it was one probation violation for just marijuana, but he's violated it repeatedly for things like assault, being an idiot in the streets, etc. on top of failing drug tests and leaving the area to perform without the judge's permission. He deserves to be jailed for not caring about any of this and being wreckless

By the way Meek will now have even more street cred and will shoot to the top of the charts with his 1st post incarceration release.

Meek isn't that well-liked or a big name. I doubt he will have much of a career after he gets out unless Jay Z really invests in him.
