Watch Meek Mill's First Post-Bail Interview with NBC Nightly News

He may have been released from prison this week, but Meek Mill said he doesn't feel free. I haven't felt free since I caught this case at the age of 19 and I'm 30 now.

On Tuesday, a statement from Meek read: "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 hard time".

'I'd like to thank God, my family, and all my public advocates for their love, support and encouragement during this hard time. "There's a lot of light being shed on my situation", he adds.

'I got a lot of responsibilities. I always believed that and I got a strong team behind me... In a op-ed piece for the New York Times, he said Mill's sentence was "just on example of how our criminal system justice system entraps and harasses hundreds of thousands of black people everyday". "I immediately said a quick prayer, and got ready to go".

Mill's lawyers spent months battling to get Mill freed on bail after he was sentenced to prison for probation violations.

In November, Meek was sentenced to minimum two years after Brinkley ruled that he had violated probation from a 2008 drug and weapons case after being arrested for fighting at a St. Louis airport in March, and again in August for recklessly driving his motorcycle in NYC.

His first 2017 arrest was for a fight at an airport in St. Louis and the second came after he was seen on video doing dirt-bike stunts on the streets of Manhattan. Judge Brinkley also reports that she will not necessarily side with the persecutor or Meek's lawyer in their plea to dismiss the conviction.

Meek begged for mercy, saying he did not intend to disrespect the court's orders. They both recommended that he not be incarcerated.

The #FreeMeekMill movement was born.

Instead of completely dropping the case, Judge Brinkley declined and scheduled a hearing in June to determine whether the initial charges against the rapper will be dropped or if a new trial will be ordered.
