  • Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf Creates Petition to Reevaluate Meek Mill's Sentence

Born and raised in Philly, Meek Mill grew a local following in the hip-hop scene before gaining national recognition.

Meek Mill's 2 to 4-year prison sentence for a parole violation has stirred up controversy, as his violations came as a result of charges that were ultimately dropped and apparently against the wishes of his parole officer.

In his mugshot from the state prison in Graterford, Montgomery County, Mill is seen in a yellow prison outfit, staring straight at the camera.

Meanwhile, supporters of the imprisoned Philadelphia rapper boasted Wednesday that more than 17,000 people had signed a "Care2" petition online demanding that Brinkley be "disbarred". Joe Tacopina told TMZ Monday that Judge Genece Brinkley has a personal vendetta against his client, because he wouldn't cover the song for her. Tacopina claims that during a meeting in Brinkley's chambers, the judge suggested that Meek remake "On Bended Knee" and include a shout-out to her. "It is highly unusual for a judge to show up at community service", she says.

DeSimone, according to a court document, told Brinkley that Mill wanted to discuss his experiences performing community service but "would feel more comfortable relaying some of his thoughts and experiences" to the judge in private.

Since exploding onto the Hip-Hop scene back in 2011, Meek Mill has had a series of legal issues.

"I'm human. I'm not ideal", Mill said to Brinkley in court on Monday, according to a report from

Brinkley has not commented on the whirlwind that began after she sentenced Mill to prison. This year, he was arrested for reckless driving in NY and assault in St. Louis.

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

"In regards to the harsh, undeserving sentencing of Robert Rihmeek Williams (Meek Mill), I felt the need to create a petition to reevaluate the charges", the petition states. At the time, he threw himself on the mercy of the court, telling Brinkley, "I'm human, I'm not ideal".
