Meek Mill was sentenced to two to four years in prison in early November of last year for violating his probation. Many have spoken out on his behalf including Rev. Al Sharpton and Jay-Z, but he hasn’t spoken out himself, until now.
The Philadelphia rapper spoke to NBC’s Nightly News host, Lester Holt, via phone to talk discuss the criminal justice system now that his recent imprisonment has garnered national attention.
Holt spoke with Mill, asking him questions fans and the public have been asking, starting with, “Can you believe that 10 years you were arrested that you are still in the clutches of the criminal justice system because of this one arrest?”
Meek Mill responded, saying, “No, I wouldn’t have believed that I would be on probation this long. I talk about they gave me 10 years of probation…and I know, almost for sure in my mind, this will bring me back to prison. It was always a thought in my mind that 10 years of probation would bring me back to prison.”
