A huge breakthrough may be on the horizon for Meek and his legal team.

Today, NBC Philadelphia reported that Meek Mill has finally been granted a new hearing in front of a Superior Court, with the possibility of having his past and original conviction, overturned. His initial charges stem from an arrest where he was convicted of allegedly dealing drugs and pointing guns at a police officer. Meek denies these claims, and a Philadelphia police officer has even disagreed with his own partner’s side of the story and says he agrees with Meek.

Now, Meek’s legal team will be given the opportunity to present what they say, is an overwhelming amount of evidence to prove their client’s innocence. The Philly native has sadly spent his entire adult life on probation and his team is hopeful they will have a victory in this case. News broke a few weeks back that a Philadelphia District Attorney agreed with Meek’s legal team; and agress that the judge who presided over his case, was not being objective. One piece of evidence further proving that claim, was that Judge asked for a shoutout in a Nicki and Meek song—WHAT?!?!

Meek’s lawyer, Jordan Siev issued a statement today saying, “In light of the District Attorney’s recent filing, where he supports the granting of a new trial to Meek and the recusal of Judge Brinkley, we hope to have this injustice rectified once and for all.” Meek and his team are due in court on July 16.
