Meek Mill Rings In NBA Playoff Game After Pennsylvania Court Orders Release


Bennett Raglin/Getty Images Meek made his first public appearance after being released on bail as the special guest of Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin at Game 5 of the NBA Playoffs.


During a hearing last Monday, prosecutors overseeing Mill's case recommended granting the rapper a new trial based on what they say is Graham's history of corruption .


Meek's case has drawn nationwide attention and has been characterized as typifying the mistreatment of black men by the country's justice system.


Names ranging from Jay-Z and Beyonce to Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf to the Philadelphia Eagles have voiced support for the 30-year-old rapper's release.


After the Supreme Court's ruling, Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin shared on Instagram that he was on his way to Chester State Prison to pick Meek up.


I understand that many people of color across the country don't have that luxury and I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues," Meek shared.


"I plan to work closely with my legal team to overturn this unwarranted conviction and look forward to reuniting with my family and resuming my music career."
