Today began the next steps for the rapper who will either have his original case tossed out of retried.
Meek recently just became a free man, after he was taken off probation, from a conviction that has followed him his entire adult life.
The last time he went to court, a Philadelphia DA ruled in his favor to removed Judge Genece Brinkley from his case, after he was shown to have a bias in the case. For those that don’t know Judge Brinkley once asked meet for a shoutout in a song his did with Nicki Minaj. SMH!
Getting his probation terminated was only half the battle though. Meek and his legal team are seeking to have his 2008 gun charges dismissed. The rapper took to Twitter today to thank all his fans for their support during his journey.
I want to thank all my supporters and the Philly media for coming out to my hearing! Although I wanted to personally address you this morning, my attorneys advised me not to comment about my case at this time. pic.twitter.com/cJdw4eKgqo

Meek’s team says they are confident he will not be tried again in relation to the 2008 arrest. The actual decision will come from Judge Leon Tucker, who has now taken over Meek’s case; and both sides will return on August 27 for a status hearing.
In other news, Meek’s documentary Free Meek is dropping this week. “11 years been building up to now. #FreeMeek out this Friday on @PrimeVideo”, the Philly native announced on Twitter yesterday. We’re looking forward to this one for sure!
