"I'm here for one reason: I'm here to support my brother Meek Mill". This requires more than just gradual reform in laws-It requires a swift overhaul.

Comedian Kevin Hart and rappers Big Sean and T.I. are supporting a planned rally set to take place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Monday (13Nov17) to protest Meek Mill's imprisonment. The sentence has been criticized for its length and the credibility of claims he violated his probation.

Meanwhile, reports indicate that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has launched a probe into judge Genece Brinkly for sentencing Meek Mill to two to four years jail term, against the advise of both the District Attorney and Meek Mill's probation officer.

Tacopina claimed past year Judge Brinkley asked Meek in her private chambers in front of Meek's then-girlfriend Nicki Minaj to record a Boyz II Men song and give her a shoutout in the lyrics.

Addressing the crowd, Ross said that they aren't just protesting Meek's sentence but they are drawing attention to the justice system that they feel has been unfair to Americans.

"(Meek's) frustrated, really frustrated, and knows he's being treated different than anyone else", Tacopina said.

"He's been on probation for almost 10 years. Nobody goes on probation for 10 years", he added.

The first filing Tuesday - a day after hundreds of supporters met outside the city Criminal Justice Center demanding Mill's release - asked Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley to disqualify herself from further involvement his case and allow a new judge to reconsider Mill's prison sentence.

"She's enamored with him", Tacopina tells Billboard.

Mill is signed to Jay Z's record label Roc Nation, which urged fans to sign the Change.org petition addressed to the board and Wolf.

"So this practice of jailing people when you feel like it against the recommendation of your own constituents and in this case it was a district attorney and it was his probation officer-that's got to stop".

At that hearing, Mill's then-attorney Frank DeSimone told Brinkley that Mill wanted to discuss his experiences performing community service but "would feel more comfortable relaying some of his thoughts and experiences" to the judge in private.
