Rappers love to use their social media. But sometimes, social media can get messy, leading to deaths or self-conviction of crimes that would have otherwise gone unnoticed by authorities. For Meek Mill, his comments on social media have led to threats on the life of his parole officer, which is going to make any judge come down hard on you, especially if you are already on probation.
The Philadelphia Inquirer is reporting that Meek, aka Robert Williams, went to court on June 28 for a probation hearing. Williams is still paying the price for a gun and drug conviction from back in 2008. He did eight months in jail after being given 11 to 23 months. His probation was for five years, starting in fall, 2009.
Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley has ordered Meek to complete etiquette classes before August 4 and also stated that Meek must also notify his probation officer whenever he leaves the city of Philadelphia. According to Assistant District Attorney Noel Ann DeSantis, Meek’s comments on social media have led to threats on the life of Treas Underwood, his probation officer, which is unacceptable. Apparently, the judge thinks the etiquette classes are going to help.
“I have my own record label with seven artists. . . . I do radio. I do interviews,” Meek said.
But despite his pleas, the judge told Meek that his classes are more important than any concerts or interviews he might have coming up. Maybe Meek should focus on making music instead of getting into trouble so he can go out and make that money.
Meek just lost one of his artists, Lil Snupe, to gun violence. He wrote about it on Twitter: “It kills me that I couldn’t save my youngbull Snupe!”
