Davido reacts to Meek Mills prison sentence
The judge also cited another probation violation when he got arrested for reckless driving in New York City. Even though both cases were dropped, the judge said getting arrested alone violated his probation.
Meek was immediately arrested while in court and remanded into custody.
It should be recalled that the rapper got off with a house arrest when he violated his probation in 2015, but the judge wasn’t so lenient yesterday.
It should be noted that Meek Mill walked into the Philadelphia court room on Monday with just his lawyer and was sentenced to 2 years imprisonment, and now, Nigerian singer, Davido has reacted to him walking alone while many guys are around him when he parties.
Meek, Keep ya head up Big Bro! Small thing to a Giant” Davido started off his rant. He continued: “Crazy how meek be in the club with a 100 nigg*s, but walking into that courtroom alone!! Says a lot about life.”
Meanwhile, one of the rapper’s attorneys, Joe Tacopina, has told TMZ that the rapper is behind bars because the judge has a long-standing vendetta against him.
Tacopina also claimed that the Judge who is from the same part of Philadelphia with Meek, could have purposely sent him to jail because he failed to do a remake of Boyz II Men’s, “On Bended Knee” and give her a shout-out.
Read TMZ full report below;
Meek was sentenced to 2 to 4 years for violating probation, but one of his attorneys, Joe Tacopina, tells TMZ … even prosecutors had recommended no jail time.
According to Tacopina, Meek and the the judge are from the same part of Philly and know some of the same people.
Tacopina says the judge suggested to Meek — during a meeting in chambers last year — he do a remake of Boyz II Men’s, “On Bended Knee” … and give her, the judge, a shout-out. Meek thought she was kidding and laughed.
Tacopina claims she said, “I’m not kidding,” and when Meek refused to do it, she replied … “Okay, suit yourself.”
Meek’s lawyer believes the judge showed clear bias with her stiff sentence, and says they plan to appeal.
