Meek Mill‘s recent sentencing has sparked outrage throughout the hip-hop community and beyond. Last week the Philadelphia rapper was found guilty of violating his probation from a 2008 gun and drug case, and was subsequently sentenced to 2-4 years in state prison.
Meek’s attorney wasted no time – speaking out against the decision immediately after the verdict was made to cite possible ulterior motives held by Judge Genece E. Brinkley. The judge has been accused of being “enamored” with the rapper and having “a personal interest in the case,” supported by evidence of a denied request for Meek to re-make a Boyz II Men song.
According to TMZ, Genece Brinkley is being investigated by the FBI in regards to her relationships throughout the city of Philadelphia; including her ties to a local music mogul whom she reportedly pushed Meek to sign with.
