A Philadelphia judge has sentenced popular rapper Meek Mill to two to four years in state prison for violating probation in a almost decade-old gun and drug case.
Addressing the court on Monday, the judge, Genece Brinkley noted that the Philly rapper failed a drug test and failed to comply with the court order restricting his travel.
The original charges are almost a decade-old but the judge explained that despite her consistent efforts to help Meek, he has done whatever he wants.

Passengers at the airport, which British Airways flies direct to from the United Kingdom , said they heard an explosion. Al-Qahum was referring to airstrikes this past week on a hotel and a market area in Yemen's northern province of Saada.
JAY-Z has commented on the jail sentence given to rapper Meek Mill, calling it "unjust and heavy handed".
Tacopina claims that during a meeting in chambers previous year (16), Brinkley suggested to Mill that he should do a cover of Boyz II Men's On Bended Knee and give her a shout out. She went on to say that his sentence would be served in a state prison and he'd be eligible for parole in two years. You gave me the ladder to do what I have to do to prevail in my struggle. "I'm human. I'm not flawless", he said. "I may have made a mistake but I never had the intention of disrespecting you", he said.
However, Mill's plea did not make the judge change her decision and she ordered him to be taken into custody. But soon after he left Grand Hustle in 2010, Mill was finally thrust into the spotlight when he was picked up by Ross' label, Mayback Music Group, releasing a series of highly regarded mixtapes: Dreamchasers and Dreamchasers 2, in 2011, and his first studio album, Dreams & Nightmares, in 2012. Additionally, he was also given six more years of probation.
Meek's legal issues continued in March, when he was arrested for fighting in the Philadelphia airport (The charges were dropped when he agreed to perform community service). Mill, real name Robert Rihmeek Williams, also pled guilty to reckless driving after posting a photo in October on a dirt bike while in New York City.
