The musician faces prison for violating the terms of his parole following two arrests.

Even Hove knows getting hit with a two to four is over the top for Philly rapper Meek Mill.

Brinkley ruled on Monday (November 6) that the hip-hop star - real name Robert Rihmeek Williams - would be put back behind bars after violating the conditions of his release following a gun and drug case from 2008.

Brinkley previously sentenced Meek Mill to 90 days of house arrest following a February 2016 probation violation.

Meek was arrested twice this year for an assault and reckless driving, which contributed to his lengthy sentencing - despite both charges being dropped.

He was immediately taken into custody.

The sentence drew outrage from several fellow African American celebrities who said that prison time was disproportionate.

He agreed to plea deals in both cases, but on Monday (06Nov17), Pennsylvania judge Genece Brinkley cited a failed drug test and a failure to comply with a court order restricting his travel for her decision to lock him up again. The rapper - who owns Roc Nation, the company that represents Mill - published a post on Facebook saying "the sentence handed down by the Judge - against the recommendation of the Assistant District Attorney and Probation Officer - is unjust and heavy handed". God sometimes puts the toughest battles on his strongest soldiers.

During a hearing in 2013, Brinkley ordered Mill to take etiquette lessons after the rapper complained about court staff in internet posts.

Besides his music, Mill is known for his two-year relationship with leading female rapper Nicki Minaj which ended earlier this year.

One of Mill's attorney's, Joe Tacopina, told Business Insider that his team is gearing up to appeal what he called a "ridiculous" sentence from the court, referencing multiple instances of the judge's alleged "personal bias" in the case.
