Things aren’t looking up for Meek Mill, who’s second bail motion was denied once again by a Pennsylvania court earlier this week. In a new development in Meek’s prison saga, TMZ reports that the rapper is reportedly spending his time handling various jobs to make some money and the pay is far from what the MMG rapper is used to.
Coming from nabbing the No. 2 spot on the Billboard 200 with his latest album Wins & Losses to reportedly working as part of the prison’s general labor crew is a major transition, especially if he’s working for 19 cents per hour. A source told TMZ that the “Issues” rapper “cleans the cell block, tidies up prison grounds and washes dishes.”
Meek and his legal team have made several attempts to get the rapper released on bail but their previous efforts have been denied. Earlier this week, Judge Brinkley, who is handling the case, denied Meek’s bail request, citing him as a “danger to the community.” Meek’s legal team filed another motion to a higher court following Brinkley’s rejection but his request was once again denied.
The embattled rapper is currently serving a sentence of two to four years for violating his probation.
Billboard has reached out to Meek Mill’s attorney for comment.
