PHILADELPHIA – Rapper Meek Mill has begun to serve up to four years in prison at the Camp Hill facility for probation violations.
According to reports, the rapper was sentenced after violating probation in a prior drug and weapons case.
Robert Rihmeek Williams, the rapper’s real name, had already been arrested twice in this year.
In March – he was arrested at a St. Louis Airport for fighting.
In August – he was arrested in New York for recklessly driving his motorcycle.
However, the judge’s decision to jail Williams came as a surprise after prosecutors had recommended no jail time for the rapper.
