As we previously reported, on Tuesday, the 30-year-old rapper was released from prison after serving nearly five months behind bars for violating probation. He was arrested after violating probation for a drug and weapons charge from 2008 and received a two-to-four-year prison sentence from Judge Brinkley. He specifically mentioned Jay-Z who manages him through the label Roc Nation, Desiree Perez, Michael Rubin, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, and his fans.

'I'd like to thank God, my family, and all my public advocates for their love, support and encouragement during this hard time.

"To the Philly District Attorney's office, I'm grateful for your commitment to justice", Mill said.

Meek Mill was picked up in style after being released from prison on Tuesday afternoon.

The Guardian revealed that the rapper privately visited the Philadelphia 76ers in their locker room prior the game.

Mill issued a statement saying the past months had been "a nightmare", and thanked his many supporters and visitors, who included Mr Rubin and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

"As we have said all along, Meek was unjustly convicted and should not have spent a single day in jail", Joe Tacopina said in a statement to the New York Times.

On Tuesday Mill said on Twitter that prosecutors have his back. Studies indicate that black probationers are more likely to have their probation revoked, which makes it just one more way in which the criminal justice system perpetuates centuries-old American traditions of racial discrimination.

Peruto says there were other cops who testified in the case, and if their credibility is intact the judge might not overturn the conviction.
