Meek Mill Should Not Be Allowed To Instigate Feuds While Under House Arrest

The Inquisitr has reported that rap artist Meek Mill is allowed to release music while under house arrest.

According to the article, the artist was initially barred from releasing anything until the court lifted those restrictions, two weeks after he began serving his sentence.

Apparently, the decision was made so that he could “protect his brand” but with the condition that he not make any money off of the work and use free upload/download/streaming services to distribute his music.

Surely, this is great news for his fans and new listeners, who have likely crowded around Meek Mill’s social media accounts over a variety of “magnets,” whether they’re Nicki Minaj or his possible Flint water crisis stunt, which the Inquisitr also covered.

Certainly, three months of being under house arrest can destroy a person’s career, especially one who’s constantly releasing tracks with every feud.

But for the reasons just mentioned, there’s no way that Meek Mill’s career is at risk for this.

However, the article does suggest that there’s likely more feuding going on with his latest release, which is a remix of a Drake track, one of his known rivals.

I think for the most part, we’re already onto this guy where there’s a good possibility that the online feuds do one thing, which is to get people talking.

In the referred to article about him sending bottled water to Michigan, 50 Cent is mentioned as one of the people he was fighting with via Instagram.

Was he in on it with Meek Mill?

Because he sure was responding rather quickly and just couldn’t seem to let any of the jabs go.

Billboard covers the details of Robert Williams’ a.k.a. Meek Mill’s sentencing, down to the interaction with prosecutors and the judge.

Specifically, it addresses one detail where he has to attend on a daily basis a community service group of adults and not younger people who might be familiar fans.

The article also talks a lot about Meek Mill turning his life around, becoming a more mature and a better person who is there for his son, and being a more stable music “entrepreneur,” as the reason for his arrest is a parole violation for 2009 related to a weapons charge.

Right before going into house arrest, Meek Mill was being professionally cocky when he was apparently celebrating his last night of freedom at a strip club with friends who are likely in deep with some shady folks, as one of them had literally dodged a series of bullets the night before.

The conditions of his violation in the court of public opinion should be similar to the sentiment we have for non-violent offenders today, where there’s a bit more hesitancy to judge.

And the judge’s decision in this case is lenient enough to give him another chance.

However, was Meek Mill being genuine in court about having another chance? It’s hard to say and we should wait and see what remains of his house arrest to let the courts decide, since there’s a good chance they could extend his parole.

But when there’s an urge to release material under such a small period of time Meek Mill has to serve, there’s a big question hanging overhead. Can’t he wait until after he serves his “sentence” to see if he can negotiate something?

Because it isn’t like his brand is really going to suffer that much.

Also, if his latest release or any of the other “free” tracks coming out are more jabs and hits on other artists, then that’s a pretty sure sign that Meek Mill won’t change that much, in which case, trolling is his brand.
