Last week was a tough few days for Meek Mill. First he got into a social media beef with his Maybach Music Group comrade Wale, then he was sentenced to 3-6 months in jail for violating his parole.
Rick Ross reached out to MTV to address his MMG artist’s latest stint behind bars. In a written statement Ross said:
I created MMG years ago, my desire was to create a space where the most talented artists in the world could be nurtured and supported. With that came a commitment. I vowed to support these artist, through the good and the bad. Every individual signed to MMG is not just an artist, they are my family. And with family you ride, or you die. Yesterday, my brother, Meek Mill ran into some unfortunate legal issues. It happens. However, his team, our team, will continue to execute Meek’s plan as close to schedule as possible.
Meek’s sophomore album Dreams Worth More Than Money is currently scheduled for release on September 9. According to Ross, the LP is still “coming.”
