The freed rapper was released from prison yesterday

Meek Mill is out of prison, and everyone wants him at the Sixers game

Meek Mill's questionable two to four-year prison sentence was cut short on Tuesday (April 24) when he was released after only serving five months.

In a statement to TMZ about his release, Meek wrote, "While the past five months have been a nightmare, the prayers, visits, calls, letters and rallies have helped me stay positive".

In an op-ed a year ago for The New York Times, Jay-Z said that Mill's case was "just one example of how our criminal justice system entraps and harasses hundreds of thousands of black people every day".

His lawyers announced they were going to appeal, claiming he was being unfairly punished and that Meek Mill had turned his life around and was now a role model to others in a similar position.

Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin sits down with CBS3 to discuss Meek Mill's release from prison.

Mets' starting rotation is dealing, but can the pitchers stay healthy?
Kurt Suzuki had three hits and drove in three runs, including a two-run homer off Harvey in the first inning. Even if Vargas wasn't around, the Mets also have Seth Lugo and Robert Gsellman as starting caliber pitchers.

He was released from prison today after serving nearly five months of his prison sentence for violating his probation from a 2008 conviction on drug and illegal firearm charges. Rubin received the news at around 3 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, just a couple of hours after visiting Mill with comedian Kevin Hart.

He said he would now focus his attention on getting his convictions overturned, and that he looks forward to resuming his music career. He tweeted Tuesday that he was on his way to pick up the rapper from prison.

"For him to come to this type of game". I just left from seeing him in jail with @michaelgrubin and we were just told that he is being released. "You could tell he was trying to hold on".

"To the Philly District Attorney's office, I'm grateful for your commitment to justice", Mill said.

Mill has said he was badly beaten during the 2008 arrest and placed a bloody mugshot of himself as the cover of his "DC4" mixtape.

Iranian general threatens all Israel air bases 'within reach'
According to Daniel, Israel was bracing for a possible Iranian missile salvo or armed drone assault from Syria. The IDF and the security forces are ready for any development.

"I need clothes", Mill, wearing jeans and a solid burgundy shirt, said.

Support for Mill spread beyond the Sixers.

The district attorney, Larry Krasner, who was elected previous year on a platform of criminal justice reform, told NBC News this month that allegations of faulty police work have changed how prosecutors see Mill's case and others.

A team of lawyers and public relations consultants had waged an all-out battle to get Mill freed, leveling fierce criticism at the judge as a stream of high-powered figures and celebrities visited him in jail in the weeks and days before the Supreme Court ruling.

"It's really bad. I know some of our players in the National Football League have talked about this".

"They were filling Pennsylvania's jails and prisons yesterday, and will continue to do so tomorrow and the day after that, until policymakers reduce the size and punitiveness of mass supervision in Pennsylvania".
