Meek Mill has been in jail since July on charges that he violated probation, and Rick Ross has confirmed to MTV News this sentence will hold back the release of his anticipated third solo album, which was originally scheduled to be released on September 2nd.
On July 11th, Meek wase sentenced three-to-six months for probation violation of a 2009 drug and gun conviction, and his request for early parole was denied during a court appearance on August 18. The rapper’s defence team argued that he was ‘unfairly convicted of the violation.’
Ross’ statement reads:
“MMG and Meek Mill have decided to release Dreams Worth More Than Money at a future date. In true MMG fashion, Meek has dedicated himself to perfecting his sophomore project and it is only right that it should be rolled out exceptionally well. MMG also wants his fans to know that Meek is doing great and he wants to hear from you. So write him at.
