Rapper Meek Mill faces potential prison time for several parole violations
Meek Mill Faces Prison Time After Violating Parole.
Meek Mill may face prison time next year after a Philadelphia judge determined the rapper had violated the terms of his probation, which included him ignoring travel restrictions and other rules, according to NBC 10 in Philadelphia. PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A judge appears likely to send rapper Meek Mill back behind bars early next year for a steady stream of probation violations, most involving his failure to keep the court aware of his erratic travels.
The “Anaconda” singer took to Instagram Wednesday to share her latest present, which she most likely received from Meek Mill, but there was a slight problem with his latest gift—it didn’t fit! Common Pleas Court Judge Genece Brinkley also ruled that Mill cannot work or perform before the February 5th hearing for his sentencing and ruling, unless it is community service. Mill told the judge that he’s aware his “whole life is on the line,” and that he has been spending time with his family and girlfriend Nicki Minaj, who testified on Mill’s behalf. A jail term would presumably stall his career following a year in which the Roc Nation-signed talent has performed with Minaj, Jay-Z and other industry A-listers, and issued his second studio album, “Dreams Worth More than Money.” “The chance you gave me definitely changed my life and changed my family’s life,” Mill testified Thursday, explaining that he supports his mother, extended family and 4-year-old son. “If you didn’t give me a chance, I probably wouldn’t be at this place I’m at now.” Mill, born Robert Williams, lost his father to violence when he was 5 and left school in the tenth grade. She suggested she’s been a good influence while they’ve been living together. “[The parole officer’s] not going to be the one sleeping alone if he goes to jail.
The 33-year-old Minaj disclosed only that they were living together, but conceded she might have more influence over the rapper than his parole officer. He did recently gift her with a new diamond ring for her birthday that’s even bigger than her first engagement ring. “Now this is what I’m talking about baby. He can be irresponsible,” she said. “Since I’ve come into his life, I think I’ve been working on that a little bit… He’s just getting accustomed to being an adult.” This isn’t the first time Judge Brinkley has found Mill in violation of probation. Love u,” she wrote next to a photo that flaunted the ring, which is a cushion-cut diamond that’s set within a halo of smaller diamonds, all complete with a diamond band. In July 2014 he was sentenced to six months in jail for violating probation after not getting permission to book out-of-town concerts, and failing to provide his probation officer with a working phone number.
Engagement rumors between began swirling back in April when Minaj revealed a 15-carat yellow heart modified brilliant cut diamond mounted in platinum with a double halo of white pavé diamonds. In addition to previously jailing him, the judge had ordered him to take etiquette, anger management and parenting classes as well as extended his probation. 2015 may not bring everything that Back to the Future II promised it would: flying cars, self-lacing shoes, we don’t see ’em happening over the next 12 months. (Then again, don’t bet against Nike.) But this year will definitely pack plenty of punch when it comes to cultural happenings. Mad Max will roar back out of the apocalypse while Mad Men rides off into the sunset, rock’s Antichrist Superstar and hip-hop’s Yeezus will rise again.
News that the duo is in fact engaged, telling us at the time, “Both Meek and Nicki have been spending amazing quality time together lately and have gotten extremely close these past few months. He’s an artist,” argued his latest lawyer, Frank DeSimone. “And those people are notoriously slipshod (at organization).” The violations include Mill’s performances at a New York benefit concert last month and, according to prosecutors, efforts to meet up in various cities with Minaj. But he did show an utter commitment to the show’s silliness, and when coupled with his innate charm as a performer, led some of the night’s best sketches. That commitment was once again on display tonight, but the material by and large felt half-formed, which stranded both host and crew for a majority of the night.
Hemsworth rarely connected live onstage tonight, but he unsurprisingly did very well in this action-movie parody. “I don’t have time to bleed!” is the type of clichéd dialogue that exists in most subpar action films, and this is a sketch that teases out that notion to its logical (albeit extreme) end. It’s never not impressive how quickly SNL can throw something together with this level of complexity and production value. (The physical continuity of Hemworth’s deterioration alone is impressive.) Sasheer Zamata matches Hemsworth beat for beat as his concerned partner, serving as audience proxy for his overly-macho attitude. As someone still somewhat struggling to make herself known to SNL audience, it’s great to see her in a lead sketch role like this. “Time To Bleed” all but announces its endpoint up front, but its execution makes the ride enjoyable.
But this week, rather than focus on that President’s foibles, it’s all about Bush’s contrast to the current Republican feel and just how well he favorably compares to them, even for his harshest critics. What ensues isn’t a sketch so much as a stand-up routine, and it’s one based not only on current politics but the audience’s relationship to this actor and his place in SNL history.
Either SNL realizes that having Donald Trump as a host damaged its reputation, or the show is simply having its cake and eating it with its current criticism of him. Jones’ confusion over its lack of Golden Globes nominations highlighted one of the side effects of what many call the era of Peak TV: She only knows Breaking Bad as a show she can stream online, and has no association to its existence on AMC (or, apparently, even the existence of AMC).
