Meek Mill has avoided jail time after being found guilty of violating his parole last December. The Philadelphia rapper has sentenced to 90 days of house arrest, which will be followed by a period of community service.

According to The Fader, Judge Genece Brinkley told the rapper in court on Friday (Feb. 5), "Ordinarily when I tell a person 'if you come back you're going to get a state sentence,' they get a state sentence. But [Meek] has a lot of support and I'm taking that into consideration as well."

Mill will not be allowed to work during his 90-day house arrest period. The rapper was found guilty of violating parole by traveling to California in November without approval by the state.

The sentencing comes after Mill renewed his beef with Drake, releasing the diss track “War Pain.” Nicki Minaj, Mill’s girlfriend, attended the sentencing with him on Friday.
