Meek Mill Celebrates Prison Release At 76ers Basketball Game
Philadelphia is welcoming Meek Mill home.
Hours after his release from prison, the rapper hopped in a helicopter and arrived just in time to watch the Philadelphia 76ers take on the Miami Heat in Game 5 of the NBA playoffs. The Wells Fargo Arena erupted into applause when Mill took the court and rang the bell, a tradition that precedes every home 76ers game.
Ahead of tip-off, the 30-year-old Philly native took a shower in the locker rooms and spent some time with close friend Kevin Hart. The comedian documented their reunion on social media, teasing, “Meek got fat as s–t!”
On Tuesday, the “Ima Boss” performer was granted bail after spending nearly five months behind bars. He was previously sentenced to two to four years for violating probation in connection to a drug and weapons conviction in 2008.
