Meek Mill's Close Friend, Attorney Describe His Prison Release, New Mission

Meek Mill has been released from prison - five months after being sentenced for breaking the terms of his probation.

In a statement to TMZ about his release, Meek wrote, "While the past five months have been a nightmare, the prayers, visits, calls, letters and rallies have helped me stay positive".

"I've got a lot of responsibility, I've got a lot of important people depending on me", Meek said towards the end of the clip.

Meek Mill is out of jail, but he's kind of in disbelief over that fact.

A day after rapper Meek Mill was released from jail, community groups made their voices loud and clear Wednesday morning outside of Philadelphia City Hall.

But not long after he got that W, Mill was dealt the much more severe L when he was sentenced to prison.

Beyonce, Jay-Z and comedian Kevin Hart were part of a campaign to free him.

He said he would focus his attention on getting his convictions overturned, and that he looks forward to resuming his music career. He tweeted Tuesday that he was on his way to pick up the rapper from prison. I think my body has to adjust at this point, ' he said in his anticipated initial interview. I just left from seeing him in jail with @michaelgrubin and we were just told that he is being released.

WhatsApp Soon to Ban Under Sixteen from Using Its Service
After the Facebook's data breach scandal, WhatsApp gives ability to request WhatsApp Account info to users. In regions outside of Europe, the minimum age to use WhatsApp is still 13.

A spokesman for District Attorney Larry Krasner said late Tuesday that the Supreme Court's decision on Meek Mill's release was consistent with the position taken by their office.

Simmons said Mill's presence was meaningful to the team and the city.

"We are on to see the Sixers game, and it's going to be a big night for Philly".

Mill breezed into the locker room about 45 minutes before tip and hugged some of the Sixers.

In the 5 1/2 months since Mill was put back in prison for parole violations, Mill has become an global cause célèbre and a symbol in the fight for criminal justice reform and against unequal justice for African Americans and other minorities. Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and retired boxing great Bernard Hopkins sat near Hart and Mill, and Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf joined them in the second half.

The 30-year-old was due to serve between two and four years but a court granted him bail due to the "credibility" concerns of a witness.

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.

But a survey by The Marshall Project, a non-profit news organisation that covers the U.S. judicial system, found that at least 61,250 people - and probably far more - are in prison across the United States for minor parole violations like missing appointments, failing drug tests or staying out past curfew.
