TI Gives Advice To Meek Mill: "Use Your Time Wisely"

The ferocity of Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley's sentence shocked many based on the minor nature of Mill's crimes and numerous probation officers, attorneys, and other legal authorities from Mill's native Philadelphia recommending no jail-time. Naturally, such big news has the hip-hop community feeling distraught, especially given the complicated circumstances surrounding Meek's verdict; while he did violate his probation, it's hard not to feel like the judge was making an example out of him, and thus, doling out "justice" with excessive force.

- TMZ obtained rapper Meek Mill's mugshot taken Wednesday morning as he prepares for his 2 to 4 year sentence.

He was moved Tuesday from the city's Curran-Fromhold Correction Facility in the Northeast to the state prison at Graterford in Montgomery County. "It is highly unusual for a judge to show up at community service", she says.

But Mill's attorney Joe Tacopina told Billboard he believes the case was personal for Judge Brinkley, and her sentence stems from an "infatuation" with the rapper.

"It's some sort of an obsession", Tacopina said.

Tacopina's allegations referred to an in-chambers meeting during an earlier probation violation hearing, on February 5, 2016, that was requested by Mill and his then-attorney Frank DeSimone.

"Meek Mill has been a powerful voice in the community for our youth", the petition states.

Mill was born and raised in Philadelphia, where he became a key figure in the local hip-hop scene before gaining national recognition.

DeSimone could not be reached for comment and DeSantis said she could not comment because the proceeding was sealed.

Meek was arrested twice this year for an assault and reckless driving, which contributed to his lengthy sentencing - despite both charges being dropped.

Mill acknowledged that he went into treatment earlier this year for addiction to Percocet.

"I gave you break after break, and you basically just thumbed your nose at this court", Brinkley, who has presided over the case since 2008, told Mill, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported. At the time, he threw himself on the mercy of the court, telling Brinkley, "I'm human, I'm not ideal".
