Since the news broke the Hip-Hop world has shown its support for Meek Mill, with artists releasing messages on social media.

Popular rapper Meek Mill sits behind bars in the Philadelphia suburbs after a judge sentenced him to two to four years for violating probation in a almost decade-old gun and drug case.
