On Tuesday (Nov. 7), the support for embattled Meek Mill continued after a new petition on Change.org called for Tom Wolf, Governor of Pennsylvania, to reevaluate Meek Mill's recent sentencing.
"Meek Mill has been a powerful voice in the community for our youth," says the petition. "He has made positive contributions to many communities and programs, dedicating time and money to the cultivation of our youth and neighborhoods; even through his own adversities. He has continued to be dedicated and shown an immaculate work ethic, even at times when the system tried to prevent him from being able to tour, which is how he makes a living."
On Monday (Nov. 6), Meek Mill was sentenced two to four years for violating his probation in a nearly decade-old gun and drug case. For many in the hip-hop community, his sentencing was excessive. In the new petition, these same sentiments were echoed saying, "In regards to the harsh, undeserving sentencing of Robert Rihmeek Williams (Meek Mill), I felt the need to create a petition to reevaluate the charges, his impact in the community and the subsequent sentencing."
