Mill had been sentenced in November to two to four years behind bars for probation violations, setting off an all-out battle by a team of lawyers and public relations consultants to get him released on bail. The state of mind required to survive in that kind of environment can leave ex-prisoners confused after they get out.
Meek Mill was released from prison on Tuesday. "It's like a culture shock coming from a small cell back into the real world, so I think my body has to adjust".
The sit-down will focus on the rapper's almost six-month stint behind bars, his release on bail, and his plans for the future. I'm 30 now. And me, I pray.
Mill took to Twitter after to express his gratitude toward all of his supporters along the trying journey. "I'd like to thank God, my good friend Michael Rubin, my fans, The Pennsylvania Supreme Court and all my public advocates for their love support and encouragement during this hard time", he said.
On Tuesday, a statement from Meek read: "I'd like to thank God, my family, my friends, my attorneys, my team at Roc Nation including JAY-Z, Desiree Perez, my good friend Michael Rubin, my fans, The Pennsylvania Supreme Court and all my public advocates for their love, support and encouragement during this hard time".
I've got a lot of responsibility, I've got a lot of important people depending on me. Meek Mill tweeted that he plans to work with his legal team to "overturn this unwarranted conviction" and said he looks forward to reuniting with his family and resuming his musical career. "There's a lot of light shedded on my situation".
"I did go to the game last night, hugged him and just telling him how proud of him I was last night, how he endured and proud that now he's committed to doing this wonderful thing for other people which is to make sure this kind of thing can't happen again", said McMonagle.
The artist has been busy since, too - he was seen boarding the helicopter after with Philadelphia 76ers co-owner and close pal, Michael Rubin. Mill rang the ceremonial Liberty Bell before the match between the 76ers and the Miami Heat that evening, which the 76ers won.
