Meek Mill takes chopper to basketball game after prison release

Meek Mill is out of prison, and everyone wants him at the Sixers game

The highest court of Pennsylvania has granted the longtime clamor of the 30-year-old rapper for release from jail after being put behind bars in November for a case that stemmed from 10 years ago.

Meek Mill, who was sentenced after violating his probation on a drug and weapon's case regained his freedom on Monday.

Ruling on a King's Bench petition filed with the high court last month, the justices issued a per curiam order Tuesday directing the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas to release Meek Mill, whose real name is Robert Williams, under conditions similar to the probation he had been serving until he was imprisoned a year ago.

"While the past five months have been a nightmare, the prayers, visits, calls, letters and rallies have helped me stay positive", he added. Shortly after, Meek's legal team claimed the judge and arresting police officer were both guilty of misconduct in the rapper's case. Mill picked up by Sixers' co-owner Michael Rubin's helicopter outside his state prison in Chester and flown striaght to the Wells Fargo Center. Meek rang the 76ers customary bell to start the game between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Miami Heat. He was originally arrested for his involvement in a fight at St. Louis airport (the charges were later dropped), and for reckless driving in NY. He received a rousing ovation from the fans in attendance, as seen in a video posted on the official National Basketball Association twitter account. It also did not remove Brinkley but noted she "may opt to remove herself from presiding over this matter".

Upon his release, his biggest supporters in the entertainment industry including Jay-Z, T.I and even Kevin Hart welcomed Meek back with open arms.

Meek's lawyer, Joe Tacopina, says, "Meek was unjustly convicted and should not have spent a single day in jail".

"Though I am blessed to have the assets to struggle this unjust scenario, I perceive that many individuals of color throughout the nation do not have that luxurious and I plan to make use of my platform to shine a light-weight on these points", Mill mentioned.

He said he would now focus his attention on getting his convictions overturned, and that he looks forward to resuming his music career.
