On Tuesday, Pennsylvania's Supreme Court ordered Mill to be released on bail, while he appeals his case.
The case is a 2008 drugs and weapons case.
He served 8 months in prison however probation seemed to linger over him.
Fast forward to November 2017, when a judge sentenced Mill to 2-4 years for violating probation.
Citing two arrests..one being a reckless driving charge while shooting a music video.
Since Mill's November arrest, he garnered support from members of his community and in Hollywood; citing the country's unjust criminal justice system.
Jay-Z wrote an Op-Ed piece for the New York Times on this matter. Rick Ross, T.I., comedian Kevin Hart, 76ers owner Micheal Rubin and others have all spoken out and hollered Free Meek!
Close to 7pm, Tuesday evening, Mill bounced from the Pennsylvania State Prison in Chester and hopped on a helicopter.
From there he was joined by Rubin and headed straight to the 76ers playoff game to ring the ceremonial bell.

I’d like to thank God, my family, and all my public advocates for their love, support and encouragement during this difficult time. While the past five months have been a nightmare, the prayers, visits, calls, letters and rallies have helped me stay positive.— Meek Mill (@MeekMill) April 24, 2018
To the Philly District Attorney’s office, I’m grateful for your commitment to justice. I understand that many people of color across the country don’t have that luxury and I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues.— Meek Mill (@MeekMill) April 24, 2018
In the meantime, I plan to work closely with my legal team to overturn this unwarranted conviction and look forward to reuniting with my family and resuming my music career.— Meek Mill (@MeekMill) April 24, 2018
