JAY-Z is supporting Meek Mill amidst his shocking 2-4 years prison sentence for probation violation calling the sentencing "unjust".

A controversial decision hit the Philadelphia courtroom this week as Meek Mill receives a custodial sentence for violating his probation.

According to Philly.com, Brinkley told the 30-year-old rapper: "I gave you break after break, and you basically just thumbed your nose at this court".

Slump in United Kingdom auto sales deepens as industry records 12% fall
Sales of petrol fuelled cars rose 2.7% in October to not far off 88,000, with sales up 2.9% in the first 10 months of the year. There were marked declines across all sectors, with business and fleet demand down -26.8% and -13.0% respectively.

The sentence drew outrage from several fellow African American celebrities, who said the prison time was disproportionate.

Mill, whose most recent album, "Wins and Losses", reached number three on the USA album chart this year, was sentenced over a case dating from when the 30-year-old was a teenager. He was released in 2009 with a five-year probation agreement.

However, a judge said both arrests were a breach of his probation. He was immediately taken into custody.

She visited Pakistan twice, once in 1948, for her father's funeral, and the second time, in a much documented visit, in 2004. Detailing this visit, the report said she visited the mausoleum and wrote: "This has been very sad and wonderful for me".

Meek appeared in court in Philadelphia on November 6 for two recent arrests: one for getting into a fight at an airport in St. Louis, and one for recklessly driving a motorcycle through the streets of NYC. He was later sentenced to house arrest and six more years of probation after a minor parole violation. He was arrested again in August 2017 for reckless driving and reckless endangerment, stemming from a dirt bike stunt filmed in New York City.

Additional court cases though have seen Mill spend five months in prison in 2013 and his probation was extended for almost a decade.

Mill, who previously dated Nicki Minaj, also violated his probation in 2015 after leaving the state of Pennsylvania for a gig without getting approval from the court.
