It’s been an extraordinary couple months for Meek Mill

The Philadelphia-born hip-hop star was sentenced in November 2017 to two to four years in prison for violating probation, and spent five months in jail before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ordered his release in April of this year.   

Mill's bolt to freedom came amid a very public uproar over his harsh treatment, which stemmed from an incident back in 2008, when he was still a teen. The #FreeMeekMill campaign ignited on social media as supporters and celebrities blasted his incarceration as unnecessarily harsh and steeped in racial bias.

Soon after his release, Mill dropped an EP, Legends of the Summer. And on Tuesday night, Mill made his return to late night TV with a performance and interview on The Tonight Show. 

The rapper chatted with host Jimmy Fallon about the flaws in the criminal justice system, and how he teamed up with Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin to set about changing the structure.  He also performed Legends track "Dangerous" with Jeremih, PnB Rock and The Roots. Watch below.
