Meek Mill’s bail conditions revealed as rapper is released from jail

He's remaining in Philadelphia...

Meek Mill has been ordered to remain in Philadelphia after he was released on bail.

The rapper was released on Tuesday, after a decision to jail him for violating his probation was overturned.

But while he’ll return to court in June, he has been ordered to remain in Philadelphia – although he can appeal to leave if necessary.


“Pursuant to this same Order, this Court ORDERS that Defendant reside in Philadelphia County, be supervised by the Philadelphia County Adult Probation and Parole Department, and shall report to the Philadelphia County Adult Probation and Parole Department within 24 hours of the date of this Order”, a bail order reads.

Lawyers for the star have been attempting to get the rapper’s gun and drug-related 2008 conviction overturned after it was revealed that the police who arrested him had been caught up in a local corruption scandal.

The Philadephia rapper – real name Robert Williams – took to Twitter to thank his fans and supporters after he was released on Tuesday.
“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”, he wrote.

Following his release, Meek Mill made an appearance at the Philadelphia 76ers’ basketball game against the Miami Heat in his home city of Philadelphia. Meek was flown in a private helicopter straight to the game by the team’s owner Michael Rubin. Kevin Hart was also at the game.
