“Meek's on probation from a drug and gun conviction back in 2009,” the site writes. “According to court docs, as of November 1, 2015, he was required to obtain a travel voucher before leaving Philly.” There’s speculation that Meek may not have gotten permission to attend the AMAs on Nov. 22 in L.A.
On Thursday, Dec. 10, he was ordered to appear in court. In 2014 he spent five months locked up after “the District Attorney felt his behavior while on parole was questionable,” XXL wrote at the time.
This is all pretty confusing considering Meek and Nicki live together in L.A. On Instagram, with a photo of the quote “Prayers Go Up, Blessings Come Down,” Meek wrote:
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!!
Let's hope this gets resolved soon—without one of the best rappers in the game being forced yet again to spend time behind bars.
