Meek Mill's Attorneys File Emergency Bail Motion for His Immediate Release

One-time rival Drake also spoke out, saying, "Free Meek Mill" during a concert. The court later said the hearing was scheduled through a clerical error.

But in what the Philadelphia-born rapper's lawyer called a victory, the appeals court ordered Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley to rule on the bail petition Mill's lawyers filed two weeks ago - and explain her reasons "without further delay".

"As of this filing, more than 10 days after submission [Brinkley] has taken no action - not even to schedule a hearing - on any petitioner's motions, and in particular not on the bail motion", read the emergency petition.

Sources from the site say the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been monitoring the Meek Mill proceedings for a sometime now, and they're looking into Judge Brinkley's possible missuse of power.

What do you think of Sharpton's plans to visit Meek?

Sharpton says he hopes Meek can be an example of how the glaring issues in our legal system regarding Black men can be corrected and give real justice to the Black community. "This is about a system", Sharpton said.

Earlier the same day, buzz developed about Sharpton coming to Meek's defense.

The hip hop star's attorneys claim the judge's sentence was too harsh, adding that the District Attorney's office did not recommend any jail time for the probation violation.

On Monday (Nov. 27), the Rev. Al Sharpton visited Mill at the Chester State Correctional Institution in Pennsylvania where he is imprisoned for violating his probation.

A few days ago, National Football League free agent Colin Kaepernick shared a message to fans from Meek.
