'Free Meek Mill': Demonstrators Rallying For Imprisoned Rapper Meek Mill

Rally protesting Meek Mill's prison sentence to be held Monday

Within the letter, Rubin writes Meek Mill is a "good friend" and whom he met well over four years ago at the NBA All-Star Game. He not only has a bright future but also a unique opportunity to inspire young men at a time when others are tearing them down.

Meek Mill might have caught a huge break in his probation case and subsequent prison sentence fight - 'cause the Federal Bureau of Investigation is reportedly probing the judge who threw him back in jail. "I truly believe that such a sentence would destroy his future".

Rubin's letter comes as fans of the rapper planned to rally in support of Mill on Monday in Philadelphia, the rapper's hometown.

Rick Ross, 76ers legend Julius "Dr. J".

Addressing the crowd, Ross said that they aren't just protesting Meek's sentence but they are drawing attention to the justice system that they feel has been unfair to Americans.

The Rally for Meek is scheduled for Monday at 5 p.m.at the Criminal Justice Center in Philadelphia. "We stand for justice", read a poster for the rally tweeted by the Roots' Tariq Trotter, also known as Black Thought.

The two now talk regularly, according to Rubin, who wrote that Meek Mill is aware he is at a "pivotal point in his career" and "the stakes are high".

A petition calling for Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf to pardon the musician, real name Robert Rihmeek Williams, has also garnered more than 300,000 signatures, although authorities insist Wolf does not have the power to interfere in the case.

The rapper's lawyer, Joe Tacopina, says he plans to file a motion to have Brinkley removed from the case. Judge Genece Brinkley is the focus of an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe, the New York Post reported Monday (Nov. 13).
