*Even Drake has issues with the criminal justice system’s treatment of Meek Mill.
Earlier this month, Meek was sentenced to 2-4 years in state prison for probation violations. The rapper has received an outpouring of support from fans and celebrities who feel his punishment was excessive and unjust.
Last week, Colin Kaepernick took to Instagram in support of the rapper, pointing out the “Meek Mill is a victim of this systemic oppression.” On Friday, Jay-Z wrote an op-ed for The New York Times in support of his Roc Nation colleague.
Now, Meek Mill’s staunch nemesis has voiced his support for the rapper.
At a concert stop in Melbourne as part of his Boy Meets World Tour, Drake spotted a fan wearing a “Free Meek Mill” T-shirt. He then remarks, “Free Meek Mill. You right.”

The last time Drake and Meek Mill were in the headlines together, the two were entrenched in a feud that began when Meek accused Drake of using a ghostwriter for their collabo “R.I.C.O.” A number of diss tracks followed from both camps, including Drake’s “Back to Back” and Meek’s “Wanna Know.” At one point, Drake’s fans even called for Meek’s arrest for violating probation.
Things have died down between them in the past year, and Drake expressed regret over the hyped-up beef in a February interview.
