It’s unclear how long rapper Meek Mill will have to remain in prison, but his boss at Maybach Music Group, Rick Ross, shared a new photo of his protege from the inside. Check it out!
Meek Mill, 27, was sentenced to 3-6 months in prison after a Philadelphia judge decided that his behavior while on probation was questionable. Meek, who had been prepping to release sophomore album Dreams Worth More Than Money, was denied an early release, and will be in jail likely until Oct. 11, reports Vibe. However, judging by a photo posted by Mayback Music Group founder Rick Ross, 38, Meek seems to be in good spirits.

Dreams With More Than Money was initially slated to drop Sept. 9, and a new date has yet to be set despite Rick’s optimism. Said Rick in a statement at the time of his protege’s sentence:
“I created MMG years ago, my desire was to create a space where the most talented artists in the world could be nurtured and supported. With that came a commitment. I vowed to support these artist, through the good and the bad. Every individual signed to MMG is not just an artist, they are my family. And with family you ride, or you die. Yesterday, my brother, Meek Mill ran into some unfortunate legal issues. It happens. However, his team, our team, will continue to execute Meek’s plan as close to schedule as possible.”
