Yesterday a Philadelphia judge sentenced Meek Mill to spend 3-6 months behind bars in county jail for probation violations. The prison stint is untimely and coincides with the release of Meek Mill‘s highly anticipated album Dreams Worth More Than Money which come out September 9th. The project may just get a push back.
In a statement to MTV, Rick Ross spoke on Meek Mill‘s prison time, and said MMG and himself will still be representing Meek to the fullest while he’s away.
“I created MMG years ago, my desire was to create a space where the most talented artists in the world could be nurtured and supported. With that came a commitment. I vowed to support these artist, through the good and the bad,” Ross said to MTV News in a written statement sent on Saturday (July 12).
“Every individual signed to MMG is not just an artist, they are my family. And with family you ride, or you die. Yesterday, my brother, Meek Mill ran into some unfortunate legal issues. It happens. However, his team, our team, will continue to execute Meek’s plan as close to schedule as possible,” the label CEO continued.
Speaking on the release of Dreams Worth More Than Money, Rick Ross said it’s still coming.
“His album is coming,” he said. “We ask that the fans and the media continue to support him and his music during this time. He’ll be home soon. ‘Dreams Are Worth More Than Money,’ and family is worth more than Everything. MMG FOR LIFE.”
Meek Mill‘s Dreams Worth More Than Money album release date was announced Monday, just days before getting 3-6 months behind bars. A couple of days after Meek Mill blasted fellow MMG member Wale on Twitter and wrote “#UNOTMMG,” and calling him a cornball. This is surely a bad week for the MMG rapper.
