Meek Mill has been released from prison

Rapper Meek Mill will be released from prison Tuesday.

According to CBS News, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has ordered the rapper's immediate release.
The rapper, whose real name is Robert Williams, tweeted thanking his family and public advocates, and said he looks forward to returning to his music career.

He wrote that the past five months in jail "have been a nightmare" and had been working with his legal team to "overturn this unwarranted conviction."

Meek was sentenced in November to two to four years in prison for violating probation on a nearly decade-old gun and drug case.
Judge Genece Brinkley, who sentenced Mill for the probation violation, said he had wasted several chances to clean up his act after a 2009 gun and drug case. The sentence came against the recommendation of the prosecutor, who said Mill had matured since his original crime. Brinkley said the prosecutor did not know the case as well as she did and that Mill just "does what he wants." Demonstrators took to the streets at the time in protest.
