On Tuesday (Dec. 2), at 4 p.m. ET, Maybach Music's Meek Mill was released from a Philadelphia prison. The rapper had been incarcerated since July, serving a three- to six-month sentence for violating probation, stemming from a 2008 gun and drug conviction. Meek -- real name Robert Williams -- had served eight months in jail and began five years of probation in the fall of 2009.

Meek Mill will not be able to travel outside of Pennsylvania until he completes community service and treatment programs, so for now, touring will not be possible. For that, his sophomore album Dreams Worth More Than Money may continue to be delayed.

Judge Genese Brinkley released the rapper from prison and reinstated his probation conditions. Previously, he was ordered to take etiquette classes over an outburst at his parole office.

Mill made his debut in 2012 with the album Dreams and Nightmares.
