Meek Mill posted a picture on Instagram asking for prayers regarding his alleged probation violation. The image he shared reads: “Prayers Go Up/Blessings Come Down.”
The rapper also included a lengthy explanation about what he and his family have been dealing with since he was 19. “I’m actually fighting for my life and freedom,” he wrote.
Meek Mill was arrested for gun and drug charges in 2009. In 2014, he violated his probation and served several months after, in part, posting a photo where he posed with a gun to Instagram.
Part of his new probation rules, which began on November 1, stipulate obtaining permission before leaving his hometown of Philadelphia. Meek Mill traveled with Nicki Minaj to attend the American Music Awards in Los Angeles on November 22. He will appear in court today.
“No matter how things go. PRAYERS UP!!” he ended the Instagram post.
I'm actually fighting for my life and freedom ... Something I've been going thru from a case I caught at 19 years old and been on probation since... I am 28 now ... It's funny to see people on the internet laughing and joking about me and my family going thru these things, it's just shows me where the world is at nowadays! But if you are for me prayers up and wish me the best! Thank you to everybody that ever supported and I will continue to b great! If this is my last post know I will continue to remain strong and grow to b a better man and set a example for every minority with a dream that anything is possible! Trials and tribulations and chances makes chances & never lose faith! No matter how things go. PRAYERS UP!! 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
