Meek Mill is officially free!

The 32-year-old rapper has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor gun charge that ended a 12-year legal battle that kept him on probation.

Robert Williams, Meek's legal name had reached an agreement in Philadelphia Tuesday after a Pennsylvania appeals court had overturned his conviction on gun and drug charges from 2008.

The rapper quickly took to Twitter to thank his friend for being behind him during his legal battle.

After serving two years in prison regarding the case in 2007, a judge had decided that Mill wouldn't spend any additional time in jail.

This plea deal comes after both sides had question the credibility of the arresting officer that testified in the case. The defense had also accused the trial judge of being bias when it came to send the rapper back behind bars for minor violations.




Meek also vows to continue to fight for criminal justice reform. "I know y'all probably got family members in jail or people going through the same thing as me, and I will continue to do what I do with the reform movement and help the people that help me."

Let's go back to 2008 when Meek was convicted on drug and gun charges. Meek was sentenced to 23 months in prison and released early on five years' parole. In 2017, Meek was sentenced to two to four years in jail for violating his parole granted on the 2008 conviction. Meek served five months before the case was overturned.
