Meek Mills Case Is Moving To The Supreme Court

Published

on

Meek Mill continues to be the face of social injustice.

The Philly rapper is currently serving a 2 to 4-year prison term for violation of prohibition. The case has been in the news due to the Judge Genece Brinkley involvement with the case. The judge has been accused of extorting Meek Mill for a role in the music industry.

Meek Mill’s team also filed a motion to remove Brinkley from the case, claiming she has “exceeded the judicial role by sometimes essentially acting as a prosecutor and, at other times, taking an unusual interest in, and trying to inject herself into [Meek’s] personal and professional life.” A decision on her standing has yet to be made.

Meek’s lawyers previously filed a motion to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to get him out on bail, which required approval from Krasner. According to the filing, Philly D.A. Larry Krasner “does not oppose defendant’s application to the extent he requests release on bail pending the current proceedings, but opposes all other requested relief at this time.”

“We are encouraged by the Philadelphia District Attorney’s steadfast stance in not opposing Meek Mill’s release on bail at the Pennsylvania Supreme Court level while the current legal proceedings continue, even in light of Judge Brinkley’s vindictive and erroneous decision,” Meek’s lawyer Joe Taponica said in a statement to Complex.

As of right now, there’s no timetable set for the Supreme Court to decide whether or not Meek can post bail while he appeals his 2-4 year sentence for a probation violation.

6ix9ine Hospitalized After Robbery

Published

on

6ix9ine was reportedly hospitalized early Sunday morning (July 24) after three hooded gunmen attacked and robbed him shortly following the wrap of a music video shoot in Brooklyn — but the rapper provided authorities with a different version of the scuffle.

TMZ initially reported that 6ix9ine was pursued in front of his home before assailants pistol-whipped him and knocked him unconscious. He supposedly came to in the backseat of their car, where they threatened him before returning to his home to rob him of $750,000 of jewelry, along with $15,000-$20,000 in cash.

When the robbers fled the scene with 6ix9ine still in the backseat of their car, he escaped by opening the door of the vehicle and jumping out. After seeking the help of a stranger, who called 911, an ambulance arrived and took 6ix9ine to the hospital, where he’s currently being treated.

The Associated Press confirmed with the New York Police Department that 6ix9ine claimed he was forced from the car he was riding in around 4:30 a.m. The men who did so then had him call someone to bring personal property to the scene, where they took an “undisclosed amount of jewelry” from 6ix9ine and left.

The AP adds that 6ix9ine became “uncooperative” with authorities once he filed his report; furthermore, there’s no mention of the rapper seeking medical attention or being treated for any injuries following the event.

Early reports had Chance The Rapper releasing a new album. Instead, the Chicago native released for standalone songs.

Those four new songs — “I Might Need Security,” “Wala Cam,” “Work Out,” and “65th & Ingleside” — haven’t been packaged as an EP or anything.

There aren’t any guest features on the new tracks. In fact, the only guests are Chicago rapper/producer Supa Bwe and the unknown-to-me Forever Band (presumably not the Kiss tribute band), both of whom appear on “Supa Cam.” Chance’s regular collaborator Francis & The Lights adds backing vocals to “Work Out,” and Jamie Foxx gets a co-production credit on “I Might Need Security”.

 

On “I Might Need Security”, Chance confirms that he bought the newspaper outlet the Chicagoist.

“I bought the Chicagoist just to run you racist bitches outta business,” Chance raps on “I Might Need Security.”

Chance also released a statement on the move.

“I’m extremely excited to be continuing the work of the Chicagoist, an integral local platform for Chicago news, events and entertainment,” Chance said, according to Gothamist. “WNYC’s commitment to finding homes for the -ist brands, including Chicagoist, was an essential part of continuing the legacy and integrity of the site. I look forward to re-launching it and bringing the people of
