Meek Mill Ordered to Remain in Philadelphia While Out on Bail

Meek Mill won’t be hitting up Las Vegas — or anywhere else outside of Philadelphia — anytime soon.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the judge ordered Meek Mill not to leave Philadelphia County while he is out on bail.

“Pursuant to this same Order,” the document reads, “this Court ORDERS that Defendant reside in Philadelphia County, be supervised by the Philadelphia County Adult Probation and Parole Department, and shall report to the Philadelphia County Adult Probation and Parole Department within 24 hours of the date of this Order.”

Meek can petition the court to leave the county, should he desire, and an evidentiary hearing is scheduled for June 18, 2018.

The rapper was released from prison on Tuesday after a lengthy legal battle. After his release, he released a statement saying:

I’d like to thank God, my family, my friends, my attorneys, my team at Roc Nation including JAY-Z, Desiree Perez, my good friend Michael Rubin, my fans, The Pennsylvania Supreme Court and all my public advocates for their love, support and encouragement during this difficult time. While the past five months have been a nightmare, the prayers, visits, calls, letters and rallies have helped me stay positive.

To the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office, I’m grateful for your commitment to justice – not only for my case, but for others that have been wrongfully jailed due to police misconduct. Although I’m blessed to have the resources to fight this unjust situation, I understand that many people of color across the country don’t have that luxury and I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues.

In the meantime, I plan to work closely with my legal team to overturn this unwarranted conviction and look forward to reuniting with my family and resuming my music career.
