A bearded Meek Mill turned himself into authorities on Wednesday to start serving his 2-4 years prison sentence. Some of his fans have also launched a petition asking the state’s governor to overturn the sentence. According to the lawyer, Meek and the judge are from the same section of Philly and during a meeting last year, the same judge asked the rapper to do a remake of Boyz II Men’s classic “On Bended Knee” and give her a shout-out. Earlier this week, Meek Mill was given up to 4 years sentence for probation violation, a ruling that shocked everyone including the prosecutor and his probation officer who both recommended no prison time.
