Maybach Music Group rapper Meek Mill was taken into custody Friday in Philadelphia after he and his lawyer spent hours (to no avail) attempting to convince a judge not to return him to prison. After violating parole stemming from a drug possession and firearm case in 2009, Mill – born Robert Williams – was sentenced to three to six months’ jail time. Details as to when he will begin serving the full sentence and whether or not he will appeal are still unavailable. Depending on the specifics, this sentence could affect both Mill’s upcoming “Homecoming Tour” concert scheduled for next week and possibly even the slated September release of his album Dreams Worth More Than Money.

Mill has frequented the courts the past few years, going back and forth with judges concerning the details of his parole and trying to make accommodations for his touring schedule. Multiple violations were stated, including Mill posting photos of himself with a firearm online and his disregard of orders to break from touring in July and August. The judge in the case reportedly said “[Meek’s] not going to make that concert tonight,” regarding a show he was set to headline Friday in Washington.
